BBBSLI Holds Networking for a Cause Night

On January 27th, over 120 guests made up of Board Members, President’s Council Members, Bigs, Donors, invited guests and staff came out to enjoy a night of good food, conversation and networking at Big Brothers Big Sisters of Long Island’s (BBBSLI) Networking for a Cause Night, co-sponsored by Cohen, Hoenigmann & Badolato, CPA’s PC and Naka Technologies. The event was held at premiere location Blackstone steakhouse, located in Melville, NY.

“I am passionate about BBBSLI’s mission and feel it is important to give back to the community,” said Naka Technologies CEO, Anil Jagtiani. “The struggles I faced myself growing up allow me to understand how important it is for children to have mentors that can show them what is possible for their futures.”

The goal of BBBSLI’s Networking for a Cause events is to engage new individuals to learn more about the agency and help them become aware of ways to partner with us. These future partnerships will allow BBBSLI to cast a larger net across Long Island which in turn, will help the agency in recruiting more mentors allowing us to help more children in need.

“I realized a few years ago that the best way I could support Big Brothers Big Sisters of Long Island, at the core level, was to give my time as a mentor,” said BBBSLI Big Brother & President’s Council member, Tom Fazio. “I want to get it across to everyone that being a mentor doesn’t require a huge time commitment or going to extravagant places, sometimes the most important moments happen while talking in the car.”

We want to extend our appreciation to presenting sponsors Cohen, Hoenigmann & Badolato, CPA’s PC and Naka Technologies. Thank you to everyone who came out in support of our Networking for a Cause Night and for Defending the Potential of children across Long Island!
