More than $140,000 was raised at the Rendina Family Foundation’s fifth annual “Raising the BAR” event at The Breakers. Guests were delighted by Friday evening’s reception, sponsored by Saydina, LLC. The room was abuzz as attendees enjoyed cocktails, hors d’oeuvres, live entertainment, a raffle and a live auction. During the reception, Derek Duckett, Ph.D from Jupiter’s Scripps Research Institute spoke about the research that has been carried out thanks to donation by the Foundation, while Edward Jonas revealed a sculpture he created of Bruce A. Rendina (BAR).
Proceeds from this event will help support the Foundation’s mission of enhancing the quality of life for families and individuals who have been affected by cancer. The Foundation funds organizations, hospitals and biotechnology companies that excel in researching and developing cures for cancer. Since its inception, the Rendina Family Foundation has donated more than $5 million to organizations nationwide.
