David Lerner Associates Plans for 24th Long Island Police Appreciation Run
David Lerner Associates, a privately held securities broker dealer headquartered in Syosset, New York, announced today the 24th Annual David Lerner Associates Long Island Police Appreciation Run will be held on Thursday, June 4, 2015 at Eisenhower Park in East Meadow, New York. The announcement was made along with a check presentation by David Lerner Associates in the amount of $15,000 to the Greater Long Island Running Club, which will help organize the event. All proceeds go toward the Police Crisis Fund, which provides assistance to Nassau and Suffolk County law enforcement officers and their families in times of crisis.
“The David Lerner Associates Police Appreciation Run has become a celebrated tradition and we are happy to provide our continued support to this great cause,” said John Dempsey, president of David Lerner Associates. “Long Island’s police officers provide an invaluable service to the neighborhoods we operate in and where many of our investment counselors and staff live. Sponsoring this event and helping to grow the Police Crisis Fund over the years is a large part of who we are as a company and as a member of the Long Island community. We are excited for this year’s event and anticipate it to exceed our expectations.”
The Police Crisis Fund has helped many families of police officers, who have been fighting through emergency situations. In July of 2014, David Lerner Associates presented a check in the amount of $2,500 to the family of late Nassau County Police Department Detective Michael Kearns who passed away from leukemia. David Lerner Associates has contributed approximately $300,000 to the David Lerner Associates Police Appreciation Run since its inception in 1991.
