Tony was a philanthropist for over 40 years, initially as a member of the Nassau County Rotary, then as a Board Member for Cerebral Palsy Association of Nassau County, he organized the Annual Forget Me Not Ball for 20+ years, raising over $1 Million. Tony came to Rise Life Services 6 years ago and was instrumental in obtaining contributions to Rise’s fundraising events.
