|Century Group’s COO, Ron Blair, is currently serving on the committee for the National Pancreas Foundation’s Party for a Cure Los Angeles, which will be held on Friday, October 21 at the Luxe Sunset Boulevard Hotel in Brentwood. “For a Cure” events take place across the country, each one honoring individuals for their contributions to the cause and benefiting the foundation’s efforts. A similar event was held in New York earlier this month, and another event will be held in Washington, D.C. in early November.
Ron joined the committee at the invitation of two long-time friends and colleagues – Eric W. Golden, Managing Director of Armory Securities, who serves as the chair of the event committee and a member of the National Pancreas Foundation’s Board of Directors, and Barry Gribbon, Founder and President of Homerun Entertainment. He has a personal connection to pancreatic cancer through his best friend from childhood, who lost his mother to the disease.
Founded in 1997, the National Pancreatic Foundation is the only foundation dedicated to patients who suffer from all forms of pancreatic disease. The funds raised to date have been awarded to groundbreaking research projects geared toward scientific advancements in the field of pancreatic disease, as well as continued advocacy efforts, support for patients and caregivers, and education for health care professionals.
