New Horizons Honors Douglas A. Pick, Founder of DAP World, Inc.

On Friday, March 20th, New Horizons, a non-profit organization that helps adults with developmental disabilities, honored our client, Douglas A. Pick, President of DAP World, for providing jobs to over 220 clients in New Horizons’ workshop program at its 55th Anniversary Gala. Typically, New Horizons recognizes volunteers and staff members for their endless hard work at these annual galas but this year, for the first time, a customer was honored for his exemplary commitment and dedication to the program.

The theme for the evening, held at the Skirball Cultural Center in Los Angeles, was the roaring 50’s! The room was filled with laughter and excitement as scenes from classic movies played on the big screen. A highlight of the evening occurred during dinner when New Horizons’ Bright Lights, decked in 50’s attire, hit the dance floor to perform several dance routines. Finally, the time came for the honorees to receive their awards.

Doug Pick’s career as an entrepreneur began in 1992 with the inception of his HEAROS line of ear plugs and since that time, his company has grown to become the national leader in retail ear plug marketing. By efficiently tapping into the multitude of resources of New Horizons, Doug services the nation’s largest retailers with remarkable precision and execution as a “one man show.”

“I’m thankful and appreciative of the long standing relationship DAP World has established with New Horizons. It’s a total win-win!” says Doug Pick. “As I’m living my entrepreneurial dream, I’m proud to be able to embolden the lives of so many special needs adults to help fulfill their dreams.”

Congratulations, Doug!
