We couldn’t be prouder of our team for raising more than $100,000 in 2018 to support the fight against breast cancer, a total representing the combined fundraising efforts through participation at local walks from Westchester through the Hudson Valley.
Houlihan Lawrence was once again the largest corporate sponsor of the 25th annual American Cancer Society Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk, held October 21 at Manhattanville College in Purchase to increase awareness about breast cancer and raise much-needed funds for innovative research. More than 100 Houlihan Lawrence walkers participated from throughout the company.
“It’s very much a coordinated company-wide effort each year,” said Liz Battista, a survivor and captain of the Houlihan Lawrence corporate team. “Our office teams even become competitive against each other to see who can raise the most.”
Liz shared that many got creative holding events in the weeks leading up to the walk. The Pelham office took advantage of their train station location for a rush-hour bake sale, which raised over $1,000 in a single morning. The Rye team took the title as the highest single-office fundraiser raising over $14,000. The Greenwich office was the top Connecticut office, gathering over $8,000.
Houlihan Lawrence additionally participated in Support Connection’s Support-A-Walk, held at Franklin D. Roosevelt State Park, and the Miles of Hope Breast Cancer Foundation Walk at James Baird State Park in Dutchess County.
