Astra Tech's Reina is Candidate For Charity's 'Man of the Year'
Posted Apr 28, 2011 in Industry News
Michael Reina, District Sales Manager for Astra Tech Dental, is one of 12 nominated candidates for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's Long Island Chapter "Man of the Year" Award. Every year candidates participate in a spirited competition to raise funds for blood cancer research; the campaign lasts from March 1st to May 9th and candidates use their creativity and contacts to reach out for donations.
Every dollar donated equals one vote; the candidate who raises the most money--and therefore receives the most votes--is "Man/Woman of the Year." This year's winner will be announced at the Society's Grand Finale Gala on May 10th in Old Westbury, NY.
In past years, Reina's Team JSR--formed for his godfather, who lost his battle to Non-Hodgkins Lymphona in 2010--raised over $400,000 for patient support and cancer research. For details or to donate to Reina's campaign, visit www.mwoy.org/li/donate or send donations to 20 Louis Dr., Melville, NY 11747; all donations are tax deductible.
