NEW YORK, Oct. 20, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Colbeck Capital Management supported the 20th Melanoma Research Foundation (MRF) Gala on October 14, 2021. The annual event brings together members of the community to provide critical funding and support for the work being done to end melanoma. This year, the MRF celebrated past clinician and research honorees, as well as many brave melanoma patients who have shared their stories over the years. Currently, the Gala has raised more than $1,300,000 from this year's event alone.
In addition to this being the 20th anniversary of the MRF Gala, this was also the 25th anniversary of the MRF itself. Over the last 25 years the organization has been able to raise more than $20 million in funds for research for academic institutions throughout the United States. These funds have directly contributed to helping develop over 16 FDA-approved melanoma immunotherapy treatments.
Colbeck Capital Management was proud to support the 2021 MRF Gala, and the MRF's important mission to fund new melanoma research. This is in line with Colbeck's longtime support of other important advocacy groups, including Pink Aid, the Children's Tumor Foundation, and NEXT for Autism.
