The North Shore Young Professionals recently recognized Life’s WORC and its 50th Anniversary with a special fundraising event. The group, comprised of young adults from Long Island under the age of 35 who share an entrepreneurial mindset and commitment to their local community, held a fundraiser at the Waters Edge in Centerport and raised an estimated $17,000 for Life’s WORC. The event was spearheaded by North Shore Young Professional member Rosana Filingeri, Vice President, Business Development for Cybersafe Solutions. Rosana’s father, Ben Filingeri, is a Life’s WORC Board Member.
The fundraiser, which featured networking, free professional headshots, games and more, was co-hosted by North Shore Young Professionals’ founder Justin Soriano. Through its use of social events, volunteer work and community outreach, the organization strives help fellow young professionals with introductions to other industry peers toward advancing their careers, growing their businesses, and supporting their broader aspirations.
“We are very grateful for both the funds and the awareness the North Shore Young Professionals group has provided Life’s WORC,” said Life’s WORC Director of Development Tina Moreno. “The generosity of these young professionals and support of 50th anniversary is especially appreciated given today’s challenging economic period.”
Thank you to Rosana Filingeri and the North Shore Young Professionals – your support will help Life’s WORC continue to fulfill its mission to make a difference in the lives of people with developmental disabilities and autism.
