Henry Viscardi School at The Viscardi Center, which educates children with severe physical disabilities, was named a Finalist in the Innovation Award category in The 3rd Annual Long Island Imagine Awards. The Long Island Imagine Awards was created to offer formal acknowledgement to some of Long Island’s most effective and innovative nonprofit organizations. Last year’s event attracted over 300 attendees from the nonprofit and business communities and an even larger crowd is expected this year.
Winners will be announced LIVE at the awards gala at the Crest Hollow Country Club on Tuesday, May 5, 2015. Nominated organizations, their constituents and the Long Island business community are expected to attend. More than 130 entries were submitted for consideration in five categories, including Innovation, Leadership Excellence, Social Entrepreneurism, Rising Star, and Social Impact. Henry Viscardi School is one of four finalists in the Empire National Bank Innovation Award category.
Finalists were chosen by Long Island business professionals during preliminary judging. Members of the Awards’ Distinguished Judging Panel selected the Imagine Awards winners from among the Finalists during final judging.
“Being named a Finalist in The Long Island Imagine Awards is an important achievement,” said Ken Cerini, Founder of the Long Island Imagine Awards. “It means that independent business executives have agreed that the nominee is worthy of recognition for their innovation, leadership, entrepreneurism, and sustainability.
