Over the holiday weekend, UHY LLP sponsored the Distinguished Clown Corps float in the 88th America’s Thanksgiving Parade. The Parade is Detroit’s grandest and most anticipated civic event, the second largest Thanksgiving parade and the third largest parade in the country overall. First televised in 1948, The Parade is now broadcast nationally to more than 65 million viewers.

“With our new office now open downtown, being a part of The Parade kick started our involvement in the local community, and what better way to do it then through this memorable tradition,” said UHY Advisors’ chairman, Tony Frabotta. “We chose to sponsor this brand new float because the Distinguished Clowns Corps is comprised of community leaders and supporters just like us.”

Dozens of employees and their families filled the streets to cheer on UHY’s very own Distinguished Clowns (Bill Kingsley, Todd Bensley and son Justin, and Tom Callan and son Joseph) who walked alongside the float, representing UHY. The clowns distributed candy, smiles and UHY beads to spectators along the parade route.

“We are thrilled to have UHY as the sponsor of the Distinguished Clown Corps, a beloved tradition in America’s Thanksgiving Parade presented by Art Van,” said Tony Michaels, president and CEO of The Parade Company. “It is a privilege to partner with a company that is so committed to our region and community.”
