Corporate Citizenship: The Business of Giving
“The Corporate Citizenship Awards celebrate companies, foundations and individuals who recognize that building a better Long Island to live, work and play starts with community service. By embracing the idea that being a good corporate citizen can help an entire region prosper, this year’s honorees have set the bar high. They have donated both time and money to a cause greater than themselves; some have even made helping others their life’s work. Each of them understand the value of being part of something greater than themselves.” – Joe Giametta, Publisher of Long Island Business News

Leadership Excellence – For Profit
For more than 30 years, Christopher D. Kelley, Esq. has litigated at both trial and appellate levels. But law is only one of his passions, as he has held positions on different boards, including serving as former chairman of the East Hampton Town Zoning Board of Appeals and chairman of the East Hampton Town Democratic Committee. He served for 12 years as the president of the Spring School Board and has worked with Island-wide charities and not-for-profits.
Mr. Kelley serves as Pro Bono counsel for the Sag Harbor Partnership in its efforts to build the new Sag Harbor Cinema Arts Center on the site of the former Sag Harbor Cinema. He also serves as Pro Bono counsel to Christ Episcopal Church in Sag Harbor in the sale of land to be used as a “pocket park” by the Village of Sag Harbor through expenditure of community preservation funds by the Town of East Hampton.
