RYE BROOK, N.Y. -- Real Estate firm Houlihan Lawrence raised $88,146 in the fight against breast cancer through their 16th year of participation in the American Cancer Society’s annual Westchester Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walk.
The corporate sponsorship, coupled with $68,753 in fundraising, made the combined amount the largest single donation for any 2015 sponsor.
More than 100 of the firm’s agents turned out to show their support at the event, which took place on Sunday, Oct. 18 at Manhattanville College in Purchase.
Of the more than a dozen Houlihan Lawrence teams that participated, the highest contribution came from the Bedford office ($16,367) followed by the firm’s Rye office team ($13,805), led by Marianna Amato.
“Cancer research is an important and very personal cause to Houlihan Lawrence. Many of our colleagues or their family members are survivors, and others are actively battling the disease in some form,” said Debra Dalton, senior vice president of Houlihan Lawrence. “It’s wonderful to see the entire company rally together, support each other, and help move us closer to a cure.”
According to American Cancer Society, Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walks represent the largest network of breast cancer awareness events in the nation, uniting nearly 300 communities with a shared determination to finish the fight.
