BENEFITING: American Cancer Society
EVENT DATE: May 12, 2017
This fundraiser is to generate donations for The American Cancer Society in memory of Mike Sollecito, EHS Environmental Specialist (30 years of service to GE). All proceeds generated will go directly to the ACS, specifically for colorectal cancer research. For many years Mike had responsibility for the operation of the industrial wastewater treatment plant at the Global Research Center in Niskayuna. Before his retirement, Mike led a series of initiatives that identified the need for investment in an advanced wastewater treatment system for the Niskayuna site. Sadly, Mike passed away from cancer shortly after his retirement in 2015- the week ground was broke for a new wastewater treatment plant. There will be a memorial service including a bronze building dedication plaque to recognize Mike's efforts toward bringing this critical improvement to GRC's facilities. The service will be May 12th and will include family, friends and colleagues interested in honoring Mike's legacy.
