Mangano Honors NY Giants Super Bowl Champion Justin Tuck, Highlights Economic Impact Of Giants’ Win
Nassau County Executive Edward P. Mangano had the distinguished opportunity to honor Super Bowl Champion New York Giant Defensive End and Defensive Captain Justin Tuck with an official Key to Nassau County for his efforts in promoting children’s literacy through his foundation, Tuck's R.U.S.H. for Literacy. Mangano joined with Umberto’s of New Hyde Park in presenting Tuck with their $10,000 donation to R.U.S.H for Literacy.
“On behalf of all residents, I am honored to present Justin with an official key to Nassau County and thank him for not only his efforts on the football field, but for all his work in encouraging children to stay in school and embrace literacy,” said County Executive Mangano.
County Executive Mangano thanked Tuck and the New York Giants organization for all of their hard work and highlighted the economic impact the Giants’ Super Bowl XLVI win had on the local economy. According to CNBC analysts, each person spent a net average of nearly $60 on the Super Bowl this year.
“The Super Bowl is big business, even if it’s not being played in the tri-state area. The Giants’ victory is as good as it gets from a retail merchandise and restaurant perspective. Fans bought everything from food and beverages to new televisions, furniture, team paraphernalia and decorations, so it was a good shot in the arm for our economy,” added County Executive Mangano.
Tuck’s R.U.S.H. for Literacy was founded in 2008 by Lauran & Justin Tuck and works to raise funds to donate books and other reading materials to support children in New York, New Jersey, and Central Alabama communities.
