Uniondale, New York, September 23, 2014 – Ruskin Moscou Faltischek, P.C. announced today that they have become the tournament sponsor of the APS Invitational Open. All net proceeds from the APS Invitational Open are for the purpose of assisting our returning veterans and their families. Most of the proceeds will go to the American Legion Post 694, a local charity that cares for Long Island veterans and their families and helps to fund programs at the Northport VA Medical Center, which cared for over 34,000 Nassau and Suffolk County veterans and their families last year.
The golf tournament is the brainchild and passion of Daniel G. Pompa, D.D.S. Dr. Pompa is an oral and maxillofacial surgeon who retired from active practice two years ago. Dr. Pompa is also an author, inventor and speaker for the American Dental Association. Dr. Pompa, said, “Ruskin Moscou Faltischek never fails to impress me with their dedication to the community. I am so proud to work with such a distinguished law firm.” Dr. Pompa remarked that he has an incredible volunteer golf committee and “all are diligently working to make this an exciting day and a successful fundraising event for the American Legion Post 694, which directly supports our Northport VA here on Long Island.”
John J. Cooney, a United States Marine Corps veteran and an attorney at the firm, is commander of the American Legion Post 694. Mr. Cooney has coordinated programs within the American Legion Post 694 in the past to help veterans and their families across Long Island. “It has been a pleasure working with Dr. Pompa and his team to ensure that support goes directly to those that need it most. We are very thankful for their efforts to help lessen the burden for those that have served us,” Cooney remarked.
Mark S. Mulholland, Managing Partner and a former Captain in the United States Army J.A.G. corps, said, “This is just one small way we are able to give back and make sure our local veterans and their families are cared for.” Mr. Mulholland added, “We applaud the charitable and noble efforts of Dr. Pompa and his organization for this effort.”
