For the second consecutive year, UHY LLP sponsored the Distinguished Clown Corps float in the 89th America's Thanksgiving Parade. Over 70 feet long and standing 17 feet tall, the DCC float is the centerpiece of the 180+ Distinguished Clowns greeting and entertaining hundreds of thousands of spectators.
Over 70 employees and their families filled the streets to cheer on UHY's very own Distinguished Clowns (Chad Kime, Matt Munn, Debi Ritter, Bill Kingsley, Todd Bensley and son Justin, and Tom Callan and son Joe) who walked alongside the float, representing UHY. The clowns distributed candy, smiles and UHY beads to spectators along the parade route.

The Parade is Detroit's grandest and most anticipated civic event, the second largest Thanksgiving parade and the third largest parade in the country overall. First televised in 1948, The Parade is broadcast live locally on WDIV-TV Local 4 with a syndicated national potential reach of over 65 million households.
"UHY is celebrating our one-year anniversary in our newest downtown office. We’ve always had strong ties to this community, supporting numerous local charities; and we are thrilled to be a part of this memorable tradition," said UHY Advisors' chairman and CEO, Tony Frabotta. "Our firm chose to sponsor this float because the Distinguished Clowns Corps is comprised of community leaders and supporters just like us.”
