PONTE VEDRA BEACH, FL — (November 14, 2019) In support of the Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA), Fulcrum Partners, a leading executive benefits advisory, was a corporate sponsor of the 5th Annual MDA Gala in Orlando, Florida. With a goal of raising $140,000, the event greatly exceeded its target, raising more than $231,000 that will be used to help the MDA fund research breakthroughs across diseases, care for kids and adults from day one and empower families with services and support. The distinguished event, which included cocktails, dinner, and a silent auction, is positioned to become the largest MDA-sponsored fundraiser in the Central Florida area.
Founded some 68 years ago, the MDA works to free individuals, and the families who love them, from muscular dystrophy, ALS and related diseases that take away physical strength, independence and life. Thanks to the work and the research supported by the MDA, six new medicines have been brought to the market in the last four years and adults and children who battle muscle-debilitating diseases are living longer and growing stronger.
Scott Cahill, a Managing Director and founder of Fulcrum Partners, said, “The MDA is the largest source of funding for neuromuscular disease research outside the federal government. Since its founding in 1951, the MDA has committed more than $1 billion in funding to research and services. Fulcrum Partners is honored to play a part in supporting the important work of the Muscular Dystrophy Association.”
Christine Scott, who is Director of Business Development and Administration for Fulcrum Partners and is part of the team at Fulcrum Partners Orlando, served on the Toast to Life Gala’s Executive Board. “We were thrilled that our time and efforts helped the event exceed its fundraising target by nearly $100,000,” said Christine.
With more than $7 billion in assets under management, Fulcrum Partners is one of the nation’s leading executive benefits consultancies.
