WNDE Staff Raises $1,830 to Fight Childhood Cancer
WNDE Staff Raises $1,830 to Fight Childhood Cancer–Twelve employees of White Nelson Diehl Evans have raised $1,830 for the St. Baldrick’s Foundation (visithttp://www.stbaldricks.org/teams/WNDEShavees), which battles cancer that afflicts children and young adults. The employee participants included all levels of staff, from interns to partners. They solicited donations from family, friends and co-workers.
“We’re excited that we were able to surpass our total from last year,” remarked Baru Sanchez, CPA, a WNDE senior audit associate who led the effort. “Our goal is not only to raise funds to find a cure for cancer, but also to raise awareness of this disease that touches the lives of so many.”
The St. Baldrick’s Foundation fundraiser is one of two annual cancer fundraising events WNDE employees collectively participate in; the second is “Movember” (visit http://us.movember.com/), in which male staff members grow moustaches in November to raise money to fight prostate cancer and other cancers that affect men.
WNDE participants included: Baru Sanchez, Sean Thorstenson, Thomas Miyano, Kyle Goetz, Michael Gilgren, Stephen Cahill, Aaron Gonzales, Jesse Pattison, Damon Haroutunian, Bryan Heredia, Douglas Parker and Connor Kirby.
Sanchez continued, “We want to establish participation in these two events as a tradition for our company.”
Additional donations are welcome. For information, contact Baru Sanchez at (714) 978-1300, ext. 269 or [email protected]
