Marlborough, MA (PRWEB) November 12, 2007
Altico Advisors (http://www.AlticoAdvisors.com), a Microsoft Certified Partner headquartered in Massachusetts, announced today that all proceeds from the Year End Class conducted every December for Microsoft Dynamics GP clients will be donated this year to the Central New England Chapter of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society.
"There are so many incredibly worthy causes that we could support. Choosing just one is always a difficult task. This year, once again, we chose an organization that is close to our hearts and has personal meaning for us," says Mike Kean, President of Altico Advisors. "My wife Susan and I have personally raised money for MS by participating in the annual MS Bike Ride - cycling 150 miles over 2 days. Now Altico Advisors, the company I co-founded, is part of that tradition, too."
Altico co-founder and CEO Rich Maloney concurs: "This act of annual giving is another way of supporting the communities we serve. I'm proud to be part of a company that has its heart in the right place."
The Central New England Chapter of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society is moving forward to create a world free of MS for 14,000 individuals and their families in Massachusetts and New Hampshire through vital MS education, support, advocacy, and research.
Program Director Judy Cotton sees the direct impact of the Chapter's efforts. "The programs we fund," Judy explains, "provide concrete support in the form of home care and modifications that allow people with MS to live independently and safely at home. But there are intangibles, too. You can't measure or put a price on emotional support. By extending programs to those who have MS and to their families and caregivers, we are able to broaden our reach and put our funds to work in ways that matter."
Judy continues, "We want to thank Altico Advisors for their generosity and also for the opportunity to address their clients and increase awareness of the disease, the treatments that are available, and the support programs that our Chapter provides."
