A vocal proponent of industry philanthropy, Mr. Servedio has championed the efforts of the engineering and construction industry to raise millions for the New York Division March of Dimes since he joined the organization some 25 years ago. He served on the division’s board for 14 years, and is now an emeritus board member. He received two awards from the organization, and has also been presented with the Ellis Island Medal of Honor, the Humanitarian Fellow Award from the Concrete Industry Foundation, and the New York Building Congress’ Industry Recognition Award.
Elisa DiStefano, News 12 Long Island’s entertainment journalist, versatile host and seasoned, award winning features reporter will be the Mistress of Ceremonies for the evening.
The evening’s theme will be “Harry’s USO Canteen Party” and will evoke the USO’s canteen dances of the 1940’s. Long Island Cares’ Veterans Programs will be highlighted.
Guests will enjoy a musical performance by the USO Show Troupe, part of an entertainment tradition that goes back more than 70 years to the camp shows of the South Pacific. And as a treat we will fast forward to present day with a performance by Pat Farrell and the Cold Spring Harbor Band, performing Billy Joel’s timeless songbook- an acknowledgement of Billy’s support of Long Island Cares and his friendship with Harry Chapin.
