“By working with leading firms in the financial marketplace like Interactive Data, we’ve found that together we can expect miracles,” said Frank Strauss, co-founder and chairman for MFAC. “Through Dana-Farber’s partnerships with Harvard University, as well and Children’s and Brigham & Women’s hospitals, the impact of the innovative research MFAC is helping to support can be felt worldwide.”
Despite market conditions last year, MFAC continued to grow and expand its programs and events in 2009. Since its inception in 2000, the not-for-profit has raised more than $3 million.
Last year, the organization expanded its reach to the West Coast by introducing the Expect Miracles Charity Fall Classic to mirror the summer Golf Charity Classic on the East Coast, a popular event that attracts more than 500 senior financial executives each year.
“Interactive Data is proud to partner with MFAC in support of funding innovative research that is working toward a cure for a disease that impacts so many of our lives,” said Ray C’Arcy, president and chief executive officer of Interactive Data. “Our extended relationship with MFAC underscores our commitment to a cause that we feel is universally important.”
