Historic Major Gift to Support Safe Spaces for LGBT Youth
The LGBT Network is proud to announce Stanley Lomangino of Maggio Environmental as the Honoree of the 30th Anniversary Gala to be held on Wednesday, April 17, 2024 at the Crest Hollow Country Club.
In conjunction with accepting the honor of serving as the fundraising leader of the 30th anniversary event, Stanley Lomangino has generously given a $50,000 gift to the LGBT Network to support its work to create safe spaces for LGBT youth, including through the organization’s Safe Schools Anti-Bullying Initiative. This major gift is one of the largest gifts from an individual in the organization’s 30-year history.
Born and raised on Long Island, Stanley, began his career journey in 2005 when he earned his business degree from Bryant University. He spent the next 8 years in the world of finance.
In 2013, Stanley and his brother embarked on an entrepreneurial journey that would redefine their path. They boldly ventured into the world of waste hauling and recycling, with a mission to acquire and manage waste management companies across Nassau and Suffolk counties. As the years passed, their venture evolved into a thriving operation, now employing a dedicated team of over 190 employees with a continued focus on recycling for zero waste.
Amidst all the professional pursuits, Stanley’s personal life took an intriguing turn. At the age of 30, he chose to share his true self with friends and family. This decision to come out marked a significant moment in his life, one filled with courage and fear.
Today, Stanley and his partner, Will Rivera, call Cold Spring Harbor home. Their household wouldn’t be the same without their cherished Jack Russell Terrier, Lucy.
After work, Stanley becomes an adventurer at heart. He enjoys boating, golfing, spending time with his large extended family and is an active member of Young President’s Organization.
