“As a strategic corporate partner, The Weissman Eppler Showich Investment Group is demonstrating that their commitment to the community is a priority. Their significant contribution will allow us to serve more children with special needs and provide programs designed to meet their unique challenges in 2013 and beyond,” said Rabbi Levi Shemtov, Executive Director, The Friendship Circle Michigan. “Neil Weissman has been an active Friendship Circle volunteer since 2005 and also serves on the board of directors. He has made a meaningful impact in that time. This partnership is an additional example of Neil’s considerable dedication to our mission,” he added.

“Our team is deeply committed to being active members of the community we serve. We support organizations that reflect our personal and professional values, and The Friendship Circle is a shining example. We are inspired by The Friendship Circle’s commitment to children with special needs and look forward to supporting their efforts in 2013,” said Neil Weissman, Managing Director, Weissman Eppler Showich Investment Group.
