(EASTON, PA) — ProJeCt of Easton will honor Alan Abraham, a long-time advocate and supporter of ProJeCt’s mission, with its Daniel E. Cohen Award at 6 p.m., Thursday, May 9 at the Hampton Inn Easton. The event will feature a cocktail reception (business casual attire) with heavy hors d’oeuvres, beer and wine for $75 per person.
Alan Abraham is a long-time advocate and supporter of ProJeCt’s mission. He has served on the Board of Directors since 2003 and has previously served as Board President, among other roles. A shareholder emeritus and the founder of Abraham, Borda, Corvino, Butz, LaValva & Co. PC in Easton, Alan helps to manage the organization’s finances as a volunteer.
The Daniel E. Cohen Award is named in honor of Danny Cohen, a founding member who, like Alan, has consistently given his time, talent, love and more to ProJeCt. Danny received the inaugural award in 2014. Don S. Follett, former president and CEO of the Follett Corp., received the honor in 2017. This award recognizes an individual, organization or business promoting the well-being of the disadvantaged in the Lehigh Valley and exhibiting exemplary leadership and community activism.
Alan’s commitment to, and leadership in, the community extends beyond ProJeCt. He has volunteered with Children’s Home of Easton, Carl & Emily Weller Foundation, Bnai Abraham Synagogue, Lehigh Valley Community Foundation, Miller-Keystone Blood Center, Weller Health Education Center, Easton Area Neighborhood Center and the Estate Planning Council of the Lehigh Valley.
