We are very pleased to announce that Mary C. Hodge was been selected as a Finalist in the category of “Leadership Excellence”  in the 2018 Imagine Awards Program. As a finalist, the Imagine Awards group will be arranging to have a professional video produced and shown at the awards dinner featuring Mary Hodge and her work here at CP Nassau in the Day Hab program, her work as head coach of the Nassau Thunderbolts and her work as a High Performance Manager for the U.S. Paralympics.

The 6th Annual Long Island Imagine Awards will be held Tuesday, May 1, 2018, 6-10:00pm at the Crest Hollow Country Club, Woodbury, NY. This gala event was created by Cerini & Associates to offer formal acknowledgement to some of Long Island’s most effective and innovative nonprofit organizations. Over 175 nonprofit applications were submitted to win a $5,000 grant in five categories: Innovation, Leadership Excellence, Rising Star, Social Impact and Arts and Culture. Of this pool of worthy applicants, 20 were selected as finalists and one in each category will be awarded the grant LIVE at the awards ceremony on May 1, 2018.

To quote Ken Cerini,  “The nonprofit sector is so important to the very fabric of Long Island; it benefits all of us. It is important that we recognize the impactful and innovative work that nonprofits are doing every day to change lives and showcase the top nonprofits on Long Island to foster collaboration and support not only in the nonprofit sector, but across all sectors.”

We at CP Nassau could not agree more and we salute Mary C. Hodge and thank her for all the amazing work she does, the people she helps and for the great honor she has brought to our Agency.
