Firms giving back: Gumbiner Savett bakes for breast cancer research

Southern California firm Gumbiner Savett holds bake sales throughout October to benefit the Dr. Susan Love Foundation for Breast Cancer Research; and Marcum Financial Services will mark its 10th anniversary by teaching financial literacy courses to its local communities.

Southern California firm Gumbiner Savett dedicated October to fundraising efforts to honor Breast Cancer Awareness Month, with proceeds benefiting the Dr. Susan Love Foundation for Breast Cancer Research.

The firm held bake sales throughout the month, featuring items made by staff members. The firm will match all proceeds raised from the bake sales.

“We are proud of our people and the enthusiasm that has been created for our Breast Cancer Awareness Month,” stated Shreedhar Kothari, audit and accounting shareholder at Gumbiner Savett. “We feel it is important that as a firm, we support local charities like the Dr. Susan Love Foundation for Breast Cancer Research.”

This marks the fourth year the firm has dedicated October to aiding the Dr. Susan Love Foundation for Breast Cancer Research. The charity aims to improve the lives of those affected by breast cancer through education and advocacy.

"We do the breast cancer research no one else will or can," said Christopher Clinton Conway, CEO of the Dr. Susan Love Foundation, in a statement. "Charitable donations from organizations such as Gumbiner Savett empower the Foundation's vision for meaningful research and forging unique partnerships that create the clearest path for making breast cancer a thing of the past."
