Citrin Cooperman’s “Jeans with a Twist” raises money, awareness for MS society

Citrin Cooperman & Company, LLP, a Philadelphia-based accounting, tax, and business consulting firm in Philadelphia raised more than $1,600 for the National Multiple Sclerosis Society with a recent office-wide dress down day.

Chris Hegarty, firm partner and supporter of the National MS Society, led the charge for the “Jeans with a Twist” Day program in the Philadelphia office. Hegarty and his coworkers made $5 donations to the MS Society and, in return, were permitted to wear jeans to work that day. In total, the program raised $1,657 for the society.
 
“Multiple Sclerosis is an issue that is near to my heart, so it was moving to see my colleagues rally around this great cause and organization,” said Hegarty. Still, he said, “Citrin Cooperman employees contribute to charities because that is the kind of people we are – a casual day is just an added bonus.”
 
Hegarty recently was invited by the society to become a member of the 2010 MS Leadership Class program, which honors Philadelphia-area professionals who have made outstanding contributions to business, civic, and cultural betterment of the community. To date, Hegarty has helped raise more than $2,100 for the society.
 
At Citrin Cooperman, Hegarty specializes in providing audit and business consulting services to businesses of all sizes. He focuses on broker-dealers and construction contractors, along with retail, manufacturing, and distribution companies. He joined Citrin Cooperman in 2009 as a partner in the firm’s Philadelphia office.
 
Through a 50-state network of chapters, the National MS Society helps people affected by MS by funding cutting-edge research, driving change through advocacy, facilitating professional education, and providing programs and services that help people with MS and their families move their lives forward.
