Pal-O-Mine Equestrian, Inc. (www.pal-o-mine.org, Islandia, NY), a private, not for profit organization providing a comprehensive therapeutic equine program using horses to facilitate growth, learning and healing for children and adults with disabilities, is already getting major gifts in response to its recently launched development campaign, “A Race We Will Win.” The organization, which has set a goal of $3 million to be raised over the next three years, has identified various infrastructure and equipment needs. On that list was an all-terrain vehicle, which can now be checked off due the generous gift from Joe and Patti Posillico of Posillico, Inc., , a general contracting company that provides civil engineering and construction services in the Tri-State Area. Its services include civil, materials, environmental, paving, drilling, consulting, and development construction. Patti Posillico is a Pal-O-Mine Board Member.
Pal-O-Mine founder and CEO Lisa Gatti noted that, “It is essential for Pal-O-Mine to have an all-terrain vehicle to feed our herd daily, plow our accessible walkways for students to navigate safely on, and also to travel the 13-acre campus in inclement weather quickly, effectively and safely. Patti has always been an active and dedicated Board Member and this is just another example of how she and her husband, Joe have supported our organization over the years.”
