Jacobowitz & Gubits is proud to be a part of the fabric of the Hudson Valley and shows it through participation in many nonprofit campaigns. In October alone, Jacobowitz & Gubits supported the O+ Festival, Making Strides Against Breast Cancer and the Hambletonian Marathon and Good Time Trotters Relay.
From Friday, Oct. 11, thru Sunday, Oct. 13, Jacobowitz & Gubits lent its support to the 4 th Annual O+ Festival in Kingston, N.Y. The festival raises awareness of music, art and public health in the Hudson Valley. The grassroots arts and health festival was started in Kingston in 2010 and has since spread to San Francisco, where its sister festival is held.
By programming the festival’s art and music events in various venues (bars, restaurants, storefronts, even offices) throughout one neighborhood, O+ supports and unites local businesses and residents, artists, musicians and doctors, strengthening the fabric of a community to make it stronger, more sustainable, and more vibrant.
On Sunday, Oct. 20, Jacobowitz & Gubits took part in the American Cancer Society’s Making Strides Against Breast Cancer – the region’s largest single effort to combat the second leading cause of death in women in the United States.
Partners and associates walked among 11,000 people who helped raise more than $700,000 for the cause. The American Cancer Society is the country’s largest organization in the fight against breast cancer.
On the same day, several partners and associates at Jacobowitz & Gubits joined more than 250 runners in the inaugural Hambletonian Marathon and Good Time Trotters Relay in Goshen, N.Y. The relay race supported the Hambletonian Society and The Heritage Trail, and provided a boost in business to dozens of local establishments throughout the weekend.
Larry Wolinsky, managing partner at Jacobowitz & Gubits, said, “Jacobowitz & Gubits is very active in our community. Sponsoring and participating in events that benefit nonprofit organizations has a residual effect that reverberates through the region and benefits us all.”
