NEW YORK, December 10, 2020 / PRNewswire / – Last fall, St. Jude’s 28th Annual Autumn Wine Tasting was held, a fundraiser in support of St. Jude’s mission to cure childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases. Block O’Toole & Murphy is proud to have sponsored the event for 14 years. This year it could not take place in person due to COVID-19.
The fundraising committee (which also includes partner Jeffrey Block, Daniel O’Toole, Stephen Murphy, S. Joseph Donahue, David Scher, and Scott Bigeye) was determined not to let the lack of a personal event hamper their fundraiser. Donations are necessary for St. Jude; The hospital relies heavily on these gifts to cover and cover treatment costs as they never charge the family of a child who receives treatment. St. Jude also uses these donations to fund research that has a major impact on the lives of children and families affected by childhood cancer.
partner Stephen Murphy, who has chaired the fundraising committee for 14 years, encouraged colleagues to raise funds for this important cause. Overall, the company was able to increase $ 500,000 for the children’s hospital in large part thanks to the generosity of many donors.
“The COVID-19 pandemic has reminded us of how precious and precarious life is. If in any way we can improve the quality of life of those who suffer, we will make every effort to do so,” Murphy said. “The company is always grateful for any donation, but this year it was especially humble to see so many ready to help. We are incredibly grateful that our community has provided support for this good cause.”
