The Ronald McDonald House of Long Island announced that Michael Fallarino, a philanthropist and director of finance at Farrell Fritz, P.C., a Long Island law firm, has been appointed to the organization’s Board of Directors.
Fallarino, a Levittown resident, became involved with RMH-LI after a personal experience involving his niece, Tara Fallarino. In an effort to keep her spirit alive, he started a running team, “Team Tara,” where proceeds from the fundraisers support RMH-LI.
“My goals are to inspire young people to become actively involved with the Ronald McDonald House of Long Island and philanthropic efforts in general,” Fallarino said in a recent press release. “I am inspired to bring comfort and shelter to families facing a similar experience that my family once did.”
