Hallmark Abstract President and CEO Michael Haltman Gets in the Ring for Charity


Hallmark Abstract Service LLC President and CEO Michael Haltman is one of 23 business professionals who have been selected to box for the 10th Long Island Fight for Charity, which will be held on Nov. 25th at the Long Island Hilton in Melville, N.Y. This event is one of Long Island’s leading charity fundraising and networking events, as more than 1,200 are expected to attend and $200,000-plus is projected to be raised to support members of the community through the event’s three beneficiaries: Long Island Community Chest, Family Residences and Essential Enterprises (FREE), and The Genesis School.

Haltman will be a featured boxer within the more than 10 bouts that will pit local business professionals against each other for charity.

“When I overheard one of the founders of the Long Island Fight for Charity at a networking event speaking about the program and the charities that this event has been responsible for helping for almost 10 years, I knew that I needed to get involved,” said Haltman. “With so many families out there who have children with autism and others around Long Island with immediate and dire financial needs, what better way to give back than by raising money while challenging my own physical limits at the same time.  The Fight for Charity is an organization comprised of many solid citizens who selflessly give of their time in order to give back to the Long Island community and that is something I am proud to be part of.”

As part of his long-term commitment within this unique, charitable headlining event, which since its inception has raised more than $700,000 and attracted more than 150 “boxers” representing a variety of professional work industries, Haltman will raise a minimum of $5,000 and engage in a rigorous training schedule that will be in well excess of 150 hours and involve heavy bags and speed bags, weight training, abdominal work, sparring, running, biking, jumping rope and tennis.

No stranger to investing in charitable causes, Haltman is the founder of the New York City and Long Island Chapters of the Restless Leg Syndrome Foundation and has participated in various event fundraisers benefitting the Canine Companions for Independence and its Purple Heart Pups.

“When we started the Fight for Charity 10 years ago, we anticipated it would establish itself as an event people would look forward to going to every year,” said Jamie Austin, Long Island’s Fight for Charity co-founder. “This event has been successful over the years because of the dedication of the volunteer boxers and hard work of volunteers. Today, more than ever before, we need to raise money and support members of our community and the charities that work to serve their needs.”

Long Island Fight For Charity

Michael Haltman, President of Hallmark Abstract Service, is one of  the first members of the Long Island business community to be selected to participate as one of the fighters in the 2013 Long Island Fight for Charity!

The following article appeared in Long Island Newsday recapping the event on November 19, 2012 at the Long Island Hilton at which Michael and the other 7 fighters were announced. In the coming months another 12 to 18 fighters will be selected.

If anyone is interested in participating as a sponsor for Michael he can be reached at orders@hallmarkabstractllc.com.

First 8 chosen for 2013 LI charity boxing event

Eight members of the business community now have a little over one year to get in fighting shape for the 10th Long Island Fight for Charity exhibition boxing event.

At a Monday night meeting to preview the charity fight, the organizers revealed the first eight volunteers — chosen from members of the local business community — who will participate in boxing matchups at the event slated to take place Nov. 25, 2013.

About 12 to 16 more volunteer boxers will be announced periodically at preview events leading up to next year’s fight, for a total of 20 to 24 fighters.

The first eight participants’ business backgrounds include manufacturing, the nonprofit sector, real estate and advertising.

One of the volunteer boxers, Kevin Kelly, the chief creative officer at Big Buzz Marketing Group in Melville, said his only disappointment was that the matchup was so far in the future.

“I had boxed a little as a kid and my great grandfather was a pro boxer . . . so it’s in my blood,” Kelly, 45, said. Kelly also participated in the 2012 fight, which took place in March, and said he has continued his training.

Long Island Fight for Charity began in 2003 and has raised over $700,000 for local charities.

The first eight volunteer boxers are:

1. Keith Dawson, of Prudential Douglas Elliman in Patchogue.

2. Anthony Giallanzo, of Ultimate Performance and Fitness in Glen Cove.

3. Michael Haltman, of Hallmark Abstract Service LLC in Woodbury.

4. Joanne Hutchins, of Moms Who Kick Inc.in Bayville.

5. Kevin Kelly, of Big Buzz Marketing Group in Melville.

6. Bill Mabanta, of Lab Crafters in Ronkonkoma.

7. Leaf Steuernagel, of Veteran Landscaping in Bellport.

8. Chris Whittelsey, of NBC Solutions Corp. in Huntington Station.

Charitable giving, Long island business

Canine companions for disabled U.S. military veterans and others in need!

At Hallmark Abstract Service, part of our business is giving back to the community!

Whether a company is just starting out or is about to celebrate a 25th anniversary in business, supporting the community that supports you is critical!

With that in mind I would like to present a local charity by the name Canine Companions for Independence in Medford, New York!

Canine Companions for Independence!

I had the honor and the privilege of becoming involved with CCI which breeds, trains and then provides dogs for wounded veterans and others who need assistance with the everyday tasks that most of us take for granted.

CCI was founded in California in 1975 and since that time has placed over 3,500 dogs around the country with those who need their special services and skills. The dogs are trained to work in one of four areas; Service, Hearing, Skilled Companion and Facility; and are hand selected based on the needs of an individual and the temperament of the animal.

At first each dog spends an extended period of time at the homes of volunteer puppy raisers that teach him or her certain basic skills. The dogs then go to a CCI facility where they are trained in the specific skills they need as service dogs.

I believe that only 45% of dogs that begin the training process actually make it through and into service, indicating just how special the ones who graduate actually are.

One recent recipient of a CCI service dog is Richard Sweeney. Richard is a Vietnam-era Army veteran confined to a wheelchair, now retired and living in New Hampshire.

He was at the CCI facility where he had trained with Ocean, now his service dog. Ocean will assist Richard with everyday tasks like opening doors, drawers, refrigerators, etc. He will be able to turn lights on and off and pick up any dropped objects on command…. wallets, phones, credit cards and other objects as small as a dime.

Richard is a special individual who, along with a group of other special people, forms an organization in New Hampshire known as the Pease Greeters. This is their stated mission:

The Pease Greeters Mission:

· To welcome troops passing through Pease International Airport on their way to, or from, Afghanistan or Iraq, or any other areas of conflict in any part of the world.

· To create within the Pease Trade Port an environment that reflects the respect and high esteem in which we hold all veterans.

· To promote broad participation by the general public in this welcoming of heroes, paying special attention to the education of school children by instilling respect and admiration for the troops through formal ceremonies for each flight.

The flight at Pease AFB in Portsmouth, NH could be landing or leaving at 4:00 PM or 4:00 AM and some number of Pease Greeters will be there to give the soldiers the type of welcome home or send-off that a soldier in the United States military deserves!
This is particularly important because due to the remote location of the airport few if any of the soldiers will have family there. For the soldiers returning from a tour in Iraq or Afghanistan, it’s possible that there was little if any time between leaving a combat zone and getting on a plane home.

Being greeted the way that they are by the Pease Greeters and now by Ocean will in many ways be more therapeutic than anything else could possibly be at that time.

Ocean will be helping to ensure the success of the Pease Greeters mission the way that only a dog can do!

But besides getting to meet Richard, I met a number of other trainees and their family’s at CCI who left with service dogs like Ocean that will help them with some of the most basic daily functions that once again, most of us take for granted.

The CCI mission!

The facility provides housing for up to ten families at each training session. In addition the building houses kennels, veterinary offices, training rooms, classrooms and outdoor pens. The building is spotless and if you didn’t know that dogs lived there you couldn’t tell any other way.

CCI survives on the charitable kindness of its current friends and the people like me who were already friends but just didn’t know it yet.

Help can take many different forms such as being a volunteer puppy raiser, but above all CCI needs donations to maintain the stellar level of service to the people that they help!

If you can, go out and visit the facility to see in person the great work that they do at CCI.

And please help this fantastic organization keep doing the critically important work that they do by clicking on the link below and giving whatever you can!
