Ding ding ding! Three cheers for Samsung Electronics and its Four Seasons of Hope charities today.

The major electronics manufacturer is having a gala in New York City benefitting its Four Seasons of Hope—which supports community-based foundations and charities that are headed by some sporting legends. Before the gala, Samsung and two sports heroes—Dan Marino and Jason Taylor—got to ring the closing bell on the NASDAQ market.

Bell-ringing honors for Samsung went to DJ Oh, president and CEO of Samsung North America.

Marino and his Dan Marino Foundation are among the efforts Samsung has helped to support through the Four Seasons of Hope. Other charities and sports celebs include: Magic Johnson’s Magic Johnson Foundation, Joe Torre’s Safe at Home Foundation, Arnold Palmer’s Arnold Palmer Hospital for Children, Wayne Gretzky’s Wayne Gretzky Foundation, and Boomer Esiason’s Boomer Esiason Foundation.

Always nice to hear about large corporations pitching in to help families and communities in need.
