Team contributes over $120,000 in the second year

December 20, 2017 – New York, NY— Prager Metis CPAs, LLC, is proud to announce a successful continuation to our corporate partnership with the Alzheimer’s Association. In 2017 Prager Metis International helped raise over $120,000 for the Alzheimer's Association.

The Alzheimer’s disease hits home for those of Prager Metis, as it directly affects many of our team members loved ones including both co-Managing Partners, Glenn Friedman and David Neste, who both lost their father’s to the disease last year.

Co-Managing Partner, David Neste on the starting of the partnership: “We knew from day one we wanted our firm to support a cause, the Alzheimer’s Association was a perfect fit and working with them has been an honor.”

The partnership began last Fall and continued in 2017. In June, Prager Metis participated in “The Longest Day”, where all of our offices participated with AC\DC Karaoke parties in each office as well as “Spin for a Cure” and a Chess Exhibition to raise awareness and funds. This past fall Prager Metis continued the partnership by having teams walk in the regional “Walk to End Alzheimer’s.” Prager Metis represented in the Manhattan, Long Island NY, New Jersey, Los Angeles, Miami and Westchester, NY walks, raising over $120,000 for 2017.

Co-Managing Partner, Glenn Friedman stated “Partnering with the Alzheimer’s Association has been an incredible, our Prager Metis team members all coming together to bring us one step further to finding a cure to this disease. We look forward to what the future has in store”.

The Alzheimer’s Association works on a global, national and local level to enhance care and support for all those affected by Alzheimer’s and other dementias. They are the largest nonprofit funder of Alzheimer's research, the Association is committed to accelerating the global progress of new treatments, preventions and ultimately, a cure. Back in 1979, Jerome H. Stone and representatives from several family support groups met with the National Institute on Aging to explore the value of a national, independent, nonprofit organization to complement federal efforts surrounding Alzheimer's disease. That meeting resulted in the April 10, 1980, formation of the Alzheimer's Association with Mr. Stone as founding president.

Today the Association reaches millions of people affected by the disease worldwide.
