“We’re very excited about the partnership with the AICPA,” said Bulls General Manager Mike Birling. “The AICPA has quickly become an integral part of the community, and we’re honored they have chosen to partner with the Bulls to recognize our local students and educators for all their hard work and commitment.”
The AICPA moved its operational headquarters last year to Durham from New Jersey.
“Since opening our doors in August, we have been welcomed to Durham with open arms,” said AICPA Senior Vice President Anthony Pugliese. “We could not have asked for a warmer reception. This partnership with the Durham Bulls is a great opportunity to give back to the community. Our employees are committed to making a difference in Durham, and we look forward to building an even stronger relationship with the Durham community.”
The AICPA, which has been in Durham for just over one year, will also sponsor a fireworks night at Durham Bulls Athletic Park on August 31st.
