)-- White Plains Linen | Linens à la CARTE, the tri-states' leading supplier of fine linens for leading restaurants and caterers, is pleased to announce once again, their participation and co-sponsorship with Wheelabrator Westchester L.P., a leader in the safe conversion of municipal solid waste into clean, renewable energy at the 2013 Keon Center Golf Outing. Keon Center, a non-profit agency certified by the New York State Office for People with Developmental Disabilities, plans to host its Second Annual Golf Outing on Monday, May 20th (rain date is May 21st ) at the Hollow Brook Country Club in Cortlandt Manor, New York.
“The event is a benefit to both the agency and the people involved,” stated William Melville, Keon Center’s Executive Director. “It gives us a chance to show the public our programs and services that we offer to disabled consumers and definitely shows the cooperation we have with the local business partners, such as those who are participating as sponsors.”
The proceeds will not only allow local businesses to participate in goodwill activities but also help to raise monies for Keon to service the developmentally disabled community. The Keon Center is a training facility that offers various imperative services, as well as provides life skills for individuals with these developmental disabilities. In order to achieve these goals, there are a host of many services made available, where some of them include: supported employment training, Medicaid service coordination, day habilitation, prevocational training, family support services and after-hours recreational programs. (For a complete list of services, just visit Keon’s web-site, www.keoncenter.com.) To increase the level of awareness of this event, Keon has invited special guests such as movie actor, Michael Rispoli; Chris Shearn, the YES Network announcer for the “Yankees Batting Practice Today”; and the well-known WKXP/WZAD Morning Show Host and DJ, Jack Hammer. Rispoli has been a staunch supporter of Keon for years, as he has a personal interest in this organization’s efforts, “Having a company that secures work for people with developmental issues, can give them a sense of pride and accomplishment. This is a great thing for the Hudson Valley community.” Other sports celebrities along with well-known restaurant professionals will get a chance to golf side-by-side for this worthy cause.
Keon Center has been servicing the developmentally disabled since its incorporation in 1954. They have developed many program changes over the years to meet the changing needs of their consumers. One of their goals is their commitment to developing services driven to allow for future growth. Their dedicated staff strives towards instilling a high level of independence and autonomy for their disabled consumers.
Both White Plains Linen/Linens a la Carte and Wheelabrator Westchester, as major community business leaders in Peekskill, along with the help of other well-known companies invited, will invite some of their top customers and employees for a fantastic day of golf and prizes, while they are showing their support for a worthy local charity.
