D&B Involved With the Community

Posted on November 3, 2014

D&B team participants at the Seatuck 5k run event Once again, D&Bers were involved in showing support for a charitable, community event. The Seatuck Environmental Association sponsored its fifth annual Halloween run/walk race, the “Seatuck Owl Prowl 5K”. The event starts and finishes at the Suffolk County Environmental Center in Islip. The purpose of the race is to raise funds for Seatuck’s efforts to support wildlife conservation and environmental education in Suffolk County. In addition to being a corporate sponsor for the event, D&B also sponsors each D&B participant in the race. This year, D&B had over a dozen employees and family members participating in the 5K run/walk race.

The participants in the picture included Ann Fangmann and her husband Andrew Modansky, Brittany Gaddy, Ellen DeOrsay, Robbin Petrella, Mike Savarese, Mike Wizior, Ginger Passalacqua, Patti Wendell, Lisa LeBrie, Tom Fox, Chris Koegel and Rob Raab. Other participants not in the picture are Ellen Fox and Tom Petrella. Our D&B running man, Chris Koegel, ran the 5K event in just under 17:00 minutes. This was the best time of all of the competitors. As you can see, the picture on the right shows Chris proudly holding his first place Owl Prowl award. A special thank you to Tom Fox for organizing D&B’s involvement in supporting the Seatuck programs.
