North Elba C&S Companies again pledged their support for the Empire State Games with a donation to the program last week.
Doug Bauer of C&S presented North Elba Supervisor Robert “Roby” Politi with a check for $2,500 to go toward the 32nd annual winter sporting event during a Jan. 25 meeting.
The donation was the second in as many years for the engineering company that has worked with the town on the Lake Placid Airport, which stepped in as a main sponsor when the ESG lost state funding, requiring a grass-roots community campaign to fund the four-day winter sports spectacular.
“They have been a great partner in the development of our airport and we are very greatful for what they have done,” Politi said.
“They have been very supportive of the local community and local youth sporting, including the games,” Jim McKenna, ROOST/Lake Placid CVB Director and ESG organizing committee head added.
The Empire State Winter Games are set to take place at sites in Lake Placid, Wilmington and Saranac Lake Feb. 2-5.
