Block O’Toole & Murphy was the chief sponsor of an Autumn Wine Tasting Event to benefit St. Jude
St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital is a wonderful organization and a cause that we at Block O’Toole & Murphy care very deeply about. St. Jude is devoted to the research and treatment of catastrophic pediatric diseases, most notably cancer. The hospital depends on substantial charitable contributions to fulfill its mission, including its amazing pledge that no patient ever pays for anything at St. Jude.
Each year, our firm organizes and is the chief sponsor of an Autumn Wine Tasting Event to benefit St. Jude. Firm Partner Stephen Murphy is the Chairman of the event, and Partners Daniel O’Toole, David Scher and Jeffrey Block serve on its committee. The event has become a very large and popular one, drawing well over 500 guests each year who enjoy the finest food and wines, and all while supporting a great cause. This year’s event was held on October 17, 2013 at Guastavino’s in Manhattan. We are proud to report the event raised nearly $425,000 for St. Jude, a record setting performance, and was a huge success.
If you believe, as we do, that giving back to those in need is something we all must do, then please consider giving to St. Jude. You can donate and learn more about the organization by visiting www.stjude.org.
