Let the fundraising begin! Houlihan Lawrence once again committed to being a flagship sponsor of the American Cancer Society’s Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk. Last week, to kick off the fundraising, Making Strides held an inspirational breakfast at the Westchester Marriott. The audience heard from breast cancer survivors, corporate sponsors and people within the medical community. This year Congresswoman Nita Lowey also spoke about the successes in getting government funding for research that could one day eradicate the disease.
I had the pleasure of speaking about why this cause is so important to Houlihan Lawrence. It all stems from two of our core values: community and passion. We want to help the communities in which we serve and live in as well. And we do it because we’re passionate about it. Breast cancer is a devastating disease that knows no boundaries – young and old, female and male. We’re all touched by it in some way during our lifetime. I dream of a day that there will be a cure. We all do. In fact, we're so passionate about the fight against breast cancer we actually sponsor 3 local events. Over the next month, you'll be hearing more about those organizations and fundraising efforts as well.
You too can help. To donate, visit our Houlihan Lawrence team page.
Additionally, please plan on joining us for the walk on Sunday, October 17that Manhattanville College. The college and surrounding neighborhood of Purchase, NY provides the perfect backdrop for an inspirational walk! I hope to see YOU there!
