Sponsors Line Up for 9th Annual Marcum Workplace Challenge

New York City, NY –Executives from some of Long Island’s leading companies lined up at the Melville office of Marcum LLP last week to kick off the 9h Annual Marcum Workplace Challenge. The run-walk for charity, known as Long Island’s largest corporate picnic, will take place at Jones Beach State Park on July 29.

“With the support of our sponsors, the Marcum Workplace Challenge has raised over $400,000 to date for Long Island charities,” said Carolyn Mazzenga, Partner-in-Charge of Marcum’s Long Island office. “It’s always such a thrill when the sponsors gather at our office for the kick-off photo – that’s when we know that Challenge season has begun in earnest.”
