7-25-17---PSEGLI Marcum Challange, Jones Beach, NY. 7-25-17---PSEGLI Marcum Challange, Jones Beach, NY. 7-25-17---PSEGLI Marcum Challange, Jones Beach, NY.Nearly 1,000 PSEG Long Island employees showed their community spirit on Tuesday, July 25th, helping to raise thousands of dollars for four Long Island charities by taking part in the Marcum Workplace Challenge at Jones Beach State Park.
PSEG Long Island orange was the most common color in the crowds at Long Island’s largest corporate picnic event and 3.5-mile fun run. Once everyone crossed the finish line, the utility was recognized for having the most participants and for raising the most money through contributions beyond the registration fee.
In addition to the entry fee, a portion of which supports local charities, PSEG Long Island employees contributed $3,100 in voluntary donations.
“This is always my favorite day of the year at PSEG Long Island. It’s always great to see our employees come out to the beach every year to show our spirit and commitment for such a great cause and give back to the communities we serve,” said Dave Daly, President and COO, PSEG Long Island.
More than 12,000 people and 200 companies typically participate in the Marcum Workplace Challenge. Proceeds go to benefit four local charities: Long Island Cares Inc. – The Harry Chapin Food Bank; The Long Island Children’s Museum; Children’s Medical Fund of New York; and The Nassau County Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals.
PSEG Long Island, which operates the Long Island Power Authority’s energy grid under contract, is committed to serving the community. Employees participated in nearly 800 volunteer events last year.
