CohnReznick raises over $100K for Make-A-Wish N.J.

August 11, 2014

CohnReznick raised more than $105,000 at its 13th annual employee Bowl-A-Thon benefiting Make-A-Wish New Jersey, bringing the total raised by the firm over the last three years through employee fundraising, donations and raffles to more than $1.45 million.

One of CohnReznick’s supported charities, Make-A-Wish depends on donations to grant the wishes of children with life-threatening illnesses.

CohnReznick’s efforts have now funded more than 135 wishes through Make-A-Wish New Jersey’s Adopt-A-Wish program, with approximately 15 wishes granted this summer through this year’s Bowl-A-Thon.

At the July 15th event, partners and staff from CohnReznick’s New Jersey offices who raised donations and sponsorships from friends, family and clients bowled and participated in raffles and tricky tray auctions. Every year, the firm also hosts a Wish child, and his or her family, who has been granted a wish through the donation from the prior year’s Bowl-A-Thon.

"Each year, I continue to be impressed by our team’s dedication to supporting this very worthy organization,” stated Michael L. Cohen, president of the CohnReznick Foundation and a Make-A-Wish Foundation of New Jersey board member. “Knowing that we played a part in bringing some joy to children inspires us to continue to support this worthy organization.”

Fantastic feat.

The Public should be made more aware of the activities of Accountant's other than taxes and bookkeeping, and pencil pushers.
This is what makes us a "Profession" and not number crunchers.
Get the word OUT.
