The Long Island Real Estate Group (LIREG) has made philanthropic contributions totaling $100,000 to three Long Island charities.
The donations were made to Sunrise Day Camp, the Huntington YMCA and the Community Development Corp. of Long Island.
LIREG, a networking and philanthropic group composed of executives in the real estate industry and allied trades, raised the funds through member contributions and through fund-raising events held throughout the year. Its donations are used to fund real estate-related endeavors of various charities.
“These three organizations were the most outstanding in terms of their reach and the scope of their projects among the dozens of organizations that sought our assistance this year,” said Peter Schapero, chairman of LIREG’s charity committee.
“The Long Island Real Estate Group takes seriously its efforts to make a difference on Long Island,” said LIREG co-president Samuel Yedid.
“I am very proud of the tremendous good we do,” said LIREG co-president Brad Cronin.
