“It is a great honor to be selected as a Man of the Year by Big Brothers Big Sisters of Long Island,” said Mihalich. “The organization does wonderful things for children, and I am proud to be associated with them and help further their mission. I congratulate the other award winners and look forward to the Presidential Gala in October.”
