CDI Presents Check To ALS CT Chapter

John Parke, President, CDI; Mike Burke, Executive Director, ALS CT Chapter; Brian Albenze, outgoing President, CDI. Burke thanked CDI for their donation and gave ALS hats to Albenze and Parke as a gesture of appreciation.

Connecticut Distributors, Inc. (CDI) and Brancott Wines raised $1,000 for the ALS Association Connecticut Chapter and presented the group with a check on April 1. Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) is a degenerative disease and the association supports research, as well as patient and family resources.

In the month of February, CDI employees participated in a Fitbit challenge. The staff as a whole had to hit a goal of 12 million steps. If this goal was met, Brancott Wines would donate $500 and CDI matched their donation. CDI has long supported the local ALS charity.

“We’ve been stricken with ALS at CDI and have rallied around to help,” said Maura Tancredi, Human Resources Director, CDI. Tancredi is a member of the board of directors for the ALS CT Chapter.
