"We are so grateful fortunate to have the support of the local business community. I can't say enough about the generosity of the folks at VOCUS, M & T Bank and everyone else who has stepped up to help JGL raise money for such a worthwhile organization", said David Bulitt, the firm's assistant managing director and Gala organizer.
In addition to VOCUS and M & T Bank, several local companies have pledged significant donations to support the Housing Initiative Partnership ("HIP").
