CTAM Chapters Chip In for Disabled Teens, Adults


CTAM's 15 local chapters have honored outgoing chairman Joe Rooney with a $10,000 donation to the cable executive's favorite charity.

The beneficiary is Stay-Focused, a New York City-based charity that seeks to build confidence in teens and young adults with disabilities, and provides them with unique experiences, such as scuba diving.

The chapters were honored by Rooney at the recent summit in Boston with his chairman's award, given to a person or organization in recognition of outstanding work on behalf of the cable industry.

Rooney, in a prepared statement, reiterated his gratitude to the chapters, adding, "I'm honored that they would help me conclude my time as chairman on such a high note."
