The WWE and the NY Giants have taken part in D.A.D. events. Various WWE and NY Giants Superstars, and several Politicians joined D.A.D. Founder Pat Gesualdo at the Meadowlands IZOD Arena, at a live televised WWE event, to announce the D.A.D. Program, and give a special award to New York City School Officials. Sony Music also sponsored D.A.D. on the Warped Tour, for all 40 dates.
Pat Gesualdo was invited to the White House to meet the President, in an effort to help expand the D.A.D. Program to wounded soldiers. Under President Barak Obama, the U.S. Department of State brought D.A.D. to Israel, to help disabled children in the West Bank region.
The New Jersey Governor signed groundbreaking disability legislation into law, which was written by Pat. N.J. is the first State in the country to add such additional protection for the disabled population. In an extremely rare bipartisan effort, Pat’s Legislation passed the Senate 34-0 and the Assembly 74-0.
