Cure Breast Cancer Foundation Raises $725,000 in 2014
CLIFTON, N.J. — The Cure Breast Cancer Foundation (CBCF), a Clifton, N.J. - based not-for-profit 501(c)3 charity, is set to build on one of its most successful fundraising years on record with another busy schedule of events in 2015.
CBCF recently announced its 2014 charitable efforts ended with $725,000 raised to support the breast cancer research efforts under the direction of Dr. Larry Norton, CBCF's scientific advisor, who is the Deputy Physician-in-Chief for Breast Cancer Programs and the Medical Director of the Evelyn H. Lauder Breast Center at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center.
Fully 100% of the net fundraising proceeds received by the foundation are donated towards research projects coordinated by Dr. Norton who is leading the fight against breast cancer with groundbreaking work that addresses cases when the disease spreads to other parts of the body where it can currently be controlled, but rarely cured.
CBCF will continue its efforts this year by hosting several popular events in the months ahead. Highlighting the calendar will be the 8th annual "Pink Is The New Green" Cure Breast Cancer Golf Classic. The outing is set to be held on Monday, June 22nd at the Mountain Ridge Country Club, site of the USGA 2012 Senior Amateur Championship, the 2014 MGA Mid-Amateur Championship and one of Golf Week's "Top 100 Classic Courses in America."
Additional spring and summer fundraisers include Bloomingdale's Style and Wellness in support of CBCF at the Mall at Short Hills on Sunday, on May 3rd and An Emily and Ashley Trunk Event benefitting CBCF at 215 East 68th Street in New York City on Thursday, April 30th.
"Last year we surpassed the milestone of $5 million raised since launching the foundation in 2007," notes Andrew Abramson, Treasurer and Co-Founder of CBCF. "The outstanding participation and generosity of our business partners, volunteers and donors has been a key component in providing funds to assist the work of Dr. Norton. We're incredibly thankful for their support and continued dedication which has resulted in the impressive progress being made at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center and other national and international research centers.
"As word spreads about this worthy cause both nationally and internationally, we've had many more business and individuals express interest in becoming involved with CBCF and expect 2015 fundraising to reach new heights."
CBCF hosts a number of fundraising events and informative seminars throughout the New York metropolitan area and is aggressively expanding its outreach throughout the United States and beyond.
