“We have been supporting Dana-Farber from day one, and remain committed to the Belfer Institute,” said Christina  Thirkell, executive director of the foundation.

The foundation grew out of a 1995 charity golf tournament held by EMF Founder and Chairman Frank Strauss to honor his mother’s battle with cancer and the care she received at Dana-Farber. Expect Miracles now hosts fundraising and special events in both Massachusetts and California.

“The financial community has truly embraced the foundation’s mission,” added Thirkell.

One very special event took place Aug. 1 with the foundation’s fourth annual Expect Miracles Kids Golf Day, an extraordinary day for families impacted by cancer.  e 2012 event was held at Fenway Park, Boston, to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the park and give kids a once-in-a-lifetime experience. More than 100 attendees, including families from Dana-Farber’s Jimmy Fund Clinic, enjoyed mini golf, a skills clinic, a tour of Fenway, and the chance to make unforgettable memories.

Beyond Kids Golf Day, the financial community also shows its support on the fairways throughout the year. On June 14, more than 350 senior executives from more than 80 financial services firms participated in the 18th annual Expect Miracles East Coast Classic golf tournament at Pinehills Golf Club and Waverly Oaks Golf Club, both in Plymouth, Mass.  The fourth annual West Coast Classic welcomed hundreds to Monarch Beach Golf Links in Dana Point, Calif., on Sept. 21.

“We value contributing to a very worthwhile organization, as well as participating in the foundation’s first-class events. We are proud to partner with Expect Miracles,” said Nick Nichols, chief operating officer of Keane, an unclaimed property specialist firm and EMF corporate supporter.

Additional EMF corporate supporters include J.P. Morgan, Interactive Data Corporation, Computershare, RR Donnelley, Eaton Vance Corp., BNY Mellon, and Citi—to name a few
