Gary has been actively involved in organizing Disability Awareness Night (DAN) for ten years at Citi Field in Queens, NY. This event is in partnership with the New York Mets. Disability Awareness Night provides an opportunity for many consumers and staff members of organizations that serve the special needs population to attend a Major-League ballgame, thanks to tickets donated by Center for Wealth Preservation and its Special Care Planners. The SpecialCare SM Program, developed exclusively by MassMutual, offers access to information, specialists, and financial solutions that can help improve the quality of life for people with special needs, their families, and caregivers. Our goal, and the goal of those we will honor, is to help people with disabilities to live dignified and fulfilling lives.
