Northwestern Mutual-Chicago Wealth Management Advisor Honored for Philanthropic Service
Hobie Murnane Raises more than $4k for Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation
"Hobie is committed to giving all children the chance to live life to the fullest by accelerating the search for a cure and better treatments,"
With COVID-19 hitting nonprofits hard, Murnane was compelled to find a way to support ALSF. He devised a fundraising plan embracing best practices for virtual and social-distanced in-person events with the Charles Krug and hosted a successful wine tasting. The event raised more than $4,000, which will fund 60 hours of research.
Cancer is the leading cause of death by disease in children younger than 19 in the U.S., yet childhood cancer research and services are vastly and consistently underfunded. Every $50 raised will fund one hour of research into cures and better treatments for kids with cancer.
To date, Northwestern Mutual, through its Foundation, has raised more than $30 million for the cause and helped to fund more than 400,000 hours of research to help discover life-saving treatments for children affected by the disease. Since starting its philanthropic program in 2014, Northwestern Mutual – Chicago has raised more than $575,000, funding 11,500 hours of research.
