Mutual Funds Against Cancer held its 13th annual “Expect Miracles” Golf Classic on June 7 at Pinehills Golf Club in Plymouth, Mass., followed by dinner and an awards ceremony at Waverly Oaks Golf Club. Presented by title sponsor JPMorgan Fund Services, the event attracted 380 financial executives and raised $350,000 for cancer research, which will go to the Center for Applied Cancer Sciences at the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute.
In addition to JPMorgan Fund Services, more than 65 other companies also sponsored the event. To date, the organization has raised more than $1.5 million for cancer research.
“It was an amazing day to bring the mutual fund industry together as one for an incredible, important cause,” said Frank Strauss, founder and chairman of Mutual Funds Against Cancer and a principal at Beacon Consulting Group. “This industry is extremely powerful, and together we can make a difference in the fight against this deadly disease.”
“The mutual fund industry clearly demonstrated its commitment to helping the fight against cancer,” said Lisa Onorato, vice president at JPMorgan Fund Services. “[We are] proud to be among Mutual Funds Against Cancer’s supporters and a sponsor of this important event.”
