CHARLES ANTIS HONORED BY ALZHEIMER’S ORANGE COUNTY
Founder and CEO of Southern California Roofing Company Accepts Honor for Service and Partnership
IRVINE, Calif. (MARCH 27, 2017) – Charles Antis, founder and chief executive officer of Antis Roofing and Waterproofing, was recently named a Corporate Partner Honoree at the Alzheimer’s Orange County (AOC) 19th annual fundraiser gala. Antis, a longtime philanthropist, was honored for his dedicated volunteer work and partnership with AOC.
“Charles’s efforts on behalf of Alzheimer’s Orange County knows no bounds,” said Jim McAleer, chief executive officer of Alzheimer’s Orange County. “He and his company have repeatedly stepped up and offered man-power, supplies and financial support when we needed it. We appreciate everything he has done, so in terms of honoring an individual that makes an impact for AOC, Charles was our natural choice.”
The Care Support Cure Gala, held on March 25 at The Resort at Pelican Hill in Newport Beach, helps fund the organization’s no-cost care and support programs and services for the 84,000 Orange County residents affected by Alzheimer’s disease, as well as accelerates local research to find treatments and prevention.
Antis Roofing’s Longstanding Support of Alzheimer’s Orange County
Antis Roofing and Waterproofing has participated with AOC in many ways since their initial collaboration in 2015. After the devastating loss of two grandparents to dementia in the last 10 years, Antis was motivated to partner with AOC and support their ongoing research to find a cure.
“We are proud to call ourselves a trusted ally of Alzheimer’s Orange County and look forward to continually building on our partnership,” said Antis. “This award is truly an honor for our entire company, as we all receive great fulfillment from donating our time and resources to helping this phenomenal organization - one that’s making a tangible, positive difference on behalf of those affected by Alzheimer’s and dementia.”
Antis Roofing gives annual grants to AOC through cash and in-kind donations, helping thousands of individuals living with Alzheimer’s and dementia access vital programs and services. In 2016 alone, Antis Roofing attended and supported the Alzheimer’s Orange County Walk4ALZ, the annual golf tournament, the Women’s Visionary Luncheon and the Red Shoe Society Fundraiser events. The company also donated many hours of labor, material and support for maintenance and leak repair on the Alzheimer’s Orange County corporate office building and the Adult Day Care Service Center.
Additionally, the company made Alzheimer’s Orange County the Platinum Partner in its ‘Philanthropy Suite’ at the Honda Center, allowing the organization to create and deepen relationships with potential donors, executives and community leaders.
Antis Roofing and Waterproofing is deeply committed to charity and social responsibility, working toward their mission to keep families happy, healthy, safe and dry with a roof over their heads. Antis donates hundreds of hours of time and offers financial support to non-profit partners every year.
