Washington Firm Helps Fight for a Cure

greaneyIB member firm Greaney Law Firm, PLLC is helping raise money to help find a cure for breast cancer.

Throughout the year, the Greaney Law Firm team works with the Valley Girls & Guys! 3-Day team to raise money for the Susan G. Komen 3-Day, an event where thousands of women and men come together, each raising money for Susan G. Komen and walk 60 miles over the course of three days.

This past March, members of Team Greaney participated in the Valley Girls & Guys! 8th Annual March “Fun Night Out.” The event is a fundraiser and auction to help support the Susan G. Komen 3-Day. This year’s event drew approx. 365 guests and raised $185,719.34.

During the event, members from Team Greaney ran the Cork Pull, selling 100 bottles of wine at $20 for each cork drawn. The team hit record numbers and sold out in under 40 minutes.

Komen 3-Day and will continue to raise money until the 3-Day event which is scheduled for this September.

“I joined this 3-day team seven years ago in honor of losing my own mother to breast cancer when I was 18 years old,” says Beth Whitton of Greaney Law Firm. “I have been fortunate to watch our team grow from 37 walkers to over 180 walkers strong.  This year, our team received its very own 501(c)(3) designation. We will continue to support Susan G. Komen for the Cure, as well as, raise money for our Blankets of Comfort project (sending personalized blankets to anyone undergoing treatment for any kind of cancer), provide resources to cancer patients in our community through our WHO House, and award scholarships to local graduating seniors whose parent or siblings are battling cancer.”
