SCO Honors Linda and Nick Cortese, Owners of CCP/Contract Cleaning Professionals
More than 140 golfers teed off on October 10th for the SCO Treiber Memorial Golf Outing, raising more than $375,000 to support the work of SCO Family of Services, a provider of human services for over 100 years. The funds will be used to help SCO provide vital services to more than 60,000 children, teens, families, and adults with special needs each year across Long Island and New York City.
SCO honored Linda and Nick Cortese, owners of CCP/Contract Cleaning Professionals. CCP provides expert maintenance and cleaning services to SCO’s family and youth shelters and residential programs throughout New York City. They have been partners of SCO for the past 18 years.
“We are honored to recognize Linda and Nick Cortese for their commitment to SCO’s mission and their compassion for the children and families in our care,” remarked SCO Executive Director Keith Little. ”We’re also thankful for all of our friends, old and new, who have come out to support us as part of the SCO family. Their support is critical to helping us build a strong foundation for the children and families we serve.”
It was a picture-perfect day for golf at two premier courses on Long Island’s North Shore. Dinner attendees were treated to lobster grilled on the beach at The Creek’s Beachhouse. The program included a live auction led by former Sotheby’s Auctioneer Amy Papola. The evening’s highlight came when Nick, a student at SCO’s Westbrook Preparatory School in Westbury, shared his story of personal struggle, growth and triumph.
SCO extends its gratitude to this year’s leading sponsors: The Treiber Family, Cynthia and Lee Vance, Outer-County Construction Corp., Benjamin Development Co., Colonial Wire & Cable, Irwin Siegel Agency, Inc., Maspeth Federal Savings, Metro Environmental Services, LLC, and JoEllen & Scott Treiber. Additional sponsors include The Carlstrom Family, CCP/Contract Cleaning Professional Inc., Peggy & Bob Gartland, John & Joan D’Addario Foundation, Lonicera Partners, Mutual of America, Netsmart Technologies, Inc., Margaret and Bob Sherman, Steel Equities, Sterling National Bank and Wheatley Agency, Inc.
