Not a Cloud in the Sky - Literally
The mutual fund and financial industry continued to show their commitment and support when Mutual Funds Against Cancer journeyed out West to Colorado on Thursday, September 17, 2009 for its debut West Coast Charity Fall Classic held at The Ridge at Castle Pines, Castle Rock. With over 30 firms represented including Foundation Sponsor, Interactive Data Corp, ALPS Fund Services, Oppenheimer, UMB Fund Services, and John Hancock to name a few. Over 90 old and new supporters participated in this exciting inaugural event.
The event included a day of golf coupled with a cocktail reception and awards dinner. There were many highlights of the day including a "hole in one" by Oppenheimer's Vice President Brian Kramer! In addition, two major awards were given: The Expect Miracles Award was presented to ALPS Fund Services for their contribution and commitment to MFAC’s West Coast event and John Hancock’s VP Bruce Speca received the The Miracle Maker Award for his commitment to MFAC as long standing Board Member and his dedication as MFAC’s "voice" throughout the industry.
Some additional top firms represented at this event included Arrowpoint, Foreside Advisory, Lord Abbett & Co, Wells Fargo, Citi, Beacon Consulting Group, Lincoln Financial, Old Mutual Capital and T. Rowe Price.
