Be sure to mark your calendars for the 2014 event on May 20, 2014, at Rockefeller Center!
On May 21, 2013, the biggest names in Leveraged Finance gathered for the Second Annual Leveraged Finance Fights Melanoma (LFFM) event at New York City’s Rockefeller Center. Over 800 attendees from the leveraged finance community and surrounding industries spent the evening networking and raising funds for MRA’s melanoma research, attending the cocktail reception in Rockefeller Center's The Sea Grill and Summer Garden and the afterparty at Connolly's Pub.
The evening raised over $1.2 million to help support MRA's research program. A special thank you goes to the event's co-chairs, Jeff Rowbottom of KKR and Brendan Dillon of UBS, as well as the rest of the host committee. MRA would also like to thank all of the sponsors, donors, and Studio3 for planning this incredible evening that has become an annual event.
Special attendees of the 2013 event included Apollo’s Leon Black, KKR’s Henry Kravis, Oak Hill’s Glenn August, Oaktree’s Howard Marks, and Simpson Thacher Bartlett’s Dick Beattie. Featured speakers included the event co-chairs, Chair and Co-Founder of MRA Debra Black, and a special video address by MRA Board Member Michael Milken.
MRA is also grateful to Privcap for producing a video series illustrating how melanoma has touched the lives of members of the leveraged finance community, and to IPREO for sponsoring a skin-check pledge in conjunction with the event.
