Leveraged Finance Fights Melanoma 2014

 

On May 20th, Wall Street’s Leveraged Finance community came together to help finance the fight to treat and cure melanoma. The third annual Leveraged Finance Fights Melanoma (LFFM) event at Rockefeller Center raised a record-breaking $1.4 million to benefit MRA’s global research program. MRA Board Member Michael Milken spoke at the event, which drew 900 supporters to the Sea Grill and Summer Garden for an evening of networking and raising melanoma awareness.

The annual LFFM event has now raised nearly $3.5 million for MRA's cutting-edge research programs. The awareness side of the event has also prompted attendees to get skin checks and aided in the detection of several early-stage melanomas as well as other forms of skin cancer.

A special thank you goes to the event's co-chairs, Jeff Rowbottom of KKR and Brendan Dillon of UBS, as well as to the rest of the host committee.  

MRA would also like to thank all of the event’s sponsors and donors, as well as Studio3 for planning this incredible evening. We would also like to extend our appreciation to the individual donors who helped make this event such a success: Mark Albert; Sharyar Aziz; Barry Cohen; Thomas Cole; James and Kara Cross; Brendan Dillon; Lee Grinberg; Elissa Kramer and Jay Newman; Howard and Nancy Marks; Carl Meyer; Brian and Mary Jo Rogers; Jeff Rowbottom; Peter Stavros; and Marc and Mindy Utay.
