Thank You to our Generous Supporters

Life’s WORC and The Family Center for Autism would like to recognize the hard work and generosity of our major donors over the last few months.

During the last quarter of 2016, two of our supporters truly went above and beyond. Our Charity Champions: Joel Levine and Mario Dell’Aera Jr.

Joel Levine, along with his wife Debbie and their three children, are tireless supporters of The Family Center for Autism. Not only are they active participants in the center and its programs, but their fundraiser, The Monday Night Party, directly benefits the FCA. Joel is a Partner and Senior Trial Attorney at Levine & Wiss, PLLC, and he and Debbie are avid supporters of local Autism charities throughout Long Island and the New York City area. Their daughter Emily was recently honored as The Family Center for Autism’s Person of the Year at our Night of a Million Lights gala.

Mario Dell’Aera Jr., Partner in Charge of KPMG’s New York Financial Services audit practice, is a champion of innovation and change. He consistently delivers quality solutions to the clients and accounts he leads. Over the course of an illustrious 35+ year career at KPMG, Mario has led numerous successful Fortune 500 client service teams.  That same dedication and commitment has been shown to Life’s WORC, which is why he was this year’s Honoree at the Night of a Million Lights gala.
