Hauppauge, Long Island, New York, May 12, 2018 - Quatela Chimeri PLLC is pleased to announce that Christopher J. Chimeri, a founding partner of the law firm, was recently honored by EAC Network at its 29th Annual Golf for Good outing for his dedication and commitment to helping children and families in need.

Mr. Chimeri received the Marie & Michael Gubitosi Altruist Award which memorializes longtime friends and supporters of EAC Network who also recognized the vital work being done to help those who are too often forgotten.

The hugely successful event, held at Meadow Brook Country Club, raised almost $164,000 to help EAC continue its mission of empowering, assisting, and caring for at-risk children, families and seniors in crisis across Long Island and New York City.

"We are incredibly grateful to everyone who came out to support our outing this year," said Lance W. Elder, president and CEO of EAC Network. "With the ever-changing climate surrounding the nonprofit world, we cannot overstate our gratitude to those who continue to commit to helping us help others. We especially want to thank our lead sponsors, Quatela Chimeri, PLLC, NFP and BWD Sports & Entertainment and the Marie & Michael Gubitosi Foundation for their generous support."

The funds raised at Golf for Good help the areas of greatest need within EAC Network's 70+ programs that help at-risk individuals within five program areas, including "children and youth," "families and communities," "behavioral health and criminal justice," "seniors and the incapacitated" and "vocational services."

This year, special focus is being placed on the Long Island Parenting Institute (LIPI), which enhances outcomes for children by strengthening families and empowering mothers and fathers to become confident and effective parents, and community guardianship, which manages the personal and financial affairs of an individual who cannot manage for themselves due to physical injuries, mental illness, developmental disabilities, Alzheimer's disease or other age-related dementia.
