Angelo & Claudia Nardone receive Easter Seal’s highest honor.
United For Hope Gala Hits a Homerun for Easter Seals New York! Hosted in the Yankee Stadium Legends Suite Club Wednesday, June 22nd, Easter Seals New York’s United For Hope Gala was one of the most memorable evenings of the year! More than 250 supporters attended the highly successful event, which raised over $300,000 for Easter Seals New York’s vital services and life-changing programs.
The event honored those who exemplify hope through their invaluable dedication to the Easter Seals New York mission and who have significantly impacted the lives of individuals with disabilities or special needs. Angelo and Claudia Nardone received the organization’s highest honor, the Lilli and Allan Shedlin Award from Easter Seals New York Board Member and We Live to Give Co-Founder Kanti Gala. The Nardones have spent over thirty years with Easter Seals, committing the full resources of Amway and Britt Worldwide to serving those with disabilities or special needs. Their dedication to helping those in need is truly extraordinary. Angelo and Claudia’s exemplary generosity and altruism made them most deserving of Easter Seals New York’s highest honor.
Angelo and Claudia have been supporting Easter Seals since 1983. The Nardones have raised hundreds of thousands of dollars and made personal contributions to support Easter Seals services that touch the lives of children, adults with disabilities, and their families. The Nardones recently launched a campaign “Stitch in Time” that serves as a platform to inspire other Amway IBOs to contribute their spare change to Easter Seals. In 2010, this campaign along with other fundraising, raised over $105,000.
Supporting Easter Seals is a family affair for the Nardones. Their daughter, Natalie, has volunteered for Easter Seals and helped raise funds at the Southern California Walk With Me event for several years. Son, Nick, joined in this spring to help his parents with the Easter Seals annual Celebration of Giving.
Amway and Amway IBOs have been a national partner with Easter Seals since 1983. Since that time $31 million has been contributed to support valuable services that enable children and adults with disabilities the opportunity to live, learn, and play in their own communities.
Angelo and Claudia Nardone were presented with the Lilli and Allan Shedlin Award.
