CohnReznick, one of the leading accounting, tax, and advisory firms in the United States, raised a total of $100,000 at its 14th annual employee Bowl-A-Thon benefiting Make-A-Wish® New Jersey. This brings the total raised for Make-A-Wish by the Firm over the last 14 years through employee fundraising, donations, and raffles to more than $1.54 million.
Partners and staff from CohnReznick’s New Jersey offices gathered at Hanover Lanes in East Hanover, NJ on July 15, 2015. Each bowler raised donations and sponsorships from friends, family, and clients. Bowlers, other employees, and their families also participated in raffles and tricky tray auctions, which raised additional money for the cause. Every year, CohnReznick is honored to host a Wish child (and his/her family) who has been granted a wish through the donation from the prior year's Bowl-A-Thon. Once again this year, a Wish child attended to share his story and participate in the event. Participants at the event were told never to underestimate the power of what their support does for the families and the children who benefit from Make-A-Wish.
"I am inspired every year by the dedication our team displays for this very worthy organization,” stated CohnReznick’s Phil Mandel, regional managing partner New York/New Jersey. “Being here with co-workers, friends of the Firm, and the Wish family makes it extremely worthwhile.”
Make-A-Wish, one of the CohnReznick Foundation's supported charities, depends on donations to grant the wishes of children with life-threatening illnesses. The wishes are limited only by the child's imagination. According to the organization, CohnReznick’s efforts have now fully funded more than 147wishes through Make-A-Wish New Jersey's Adopt-A-Wish® Program. This summer, approximately 10 wishes will be granted through the funds raised at this year's Bowl-A-Thon.
