Corporate donor hosts huge fundraiser for CMRI


There is nothing better than celebrating success – especially when it raises more than $130,000 for Children’s Medical Research Institute.

That’s exactly what happened at the Hyatt Regency Grand Ballroom on Saturday night at the 30th Birthday Party for one of our most dedicated corporate fundraisers, Stanford Brown Financial Advisers.

More than 480 people gathered to mark the anniversary of the business, which started one day before the Great Stock Market Crash of 1987, and has gone on to thrive.

Stanford Brown has had a relationship with CMRI for many years. As part of their birthday activities, Stanford Brown decided to use their ball as a fundraiser.

CMRI’s Dr. Tony Cesare, Head of the Genome Integrity Unit, spoke about the research he and his team are undertaking. The entire Genome Integrity Unit and several other members of CMRI and its Board attended or donated their time.

Head of Fundraising Andrew Kelly said it was a terrific celebration and thanked founder David Brown, their Board, staff and clients for their generosity in support of CMRI on the night.
