EAC Network joined the Suffolk County Bar Association on Thursday, February 6th at its headquarters in Hauppauge, NY to host the 3rd Annual Cohalan Cares for Kids event.
The annual event raised almost $24,000 and benefitted EAC Network’s Suffolk County Children's Center at Cohalan Court. It was also held in coordination with Enright Court Reporting, the Long Island Hispanic Bar Association, the Suffolk County Charitable Foundation, the Suffolk County Criminal Bar Association, the Suffolk County Matrimonial Bar Association, and the Suffolk County Women's Bar Association. “Once again, the Suffolk County legal community demonstrated its phenomenal generosity and support for the Children’s Center,” stated Rebecca Bell, Executive Vice President & COO at EAC Network. “The willingness of everyone to help maintain the Center as a vital resource to the Courts is deeply appreciated. Special thanks to the Suffolk County Bar Association for being such a gracious host and sponsor.”
The event included a special wine tasting courtesy of Rothmann’s Steakhouse and a beer tasting by Brickhouse Brewery. Fireside Caterers of East Northport provided delicious food, and Gerard Donnelly, Esq., Rafael Penate, Esq., and Thomas Lavallee, Esq., provided live music. Photography was provided by Barry M. Smolowitz, Esq.
