The Law Firm of Block O'Toole & Murphy Supports St. Jude's Hospital

st judes z100- interview.jpgOur New York City law firm has supported St. Jude's Children's Research Hospital for many years. Our premiere fund-raising event takes place in about a month, on October 15. In past years, this event has raised over $500,000 to help St. Jude's, a place where children are cured of terrible diseases every day and where cutting edge research occurs.

The cures discovered at St. Judes are not licensed or patented; they are given away freely so that other children around the country and around the world can benefit from the life-saving treatments developed at St. Jude's.

St. Jude's was founded by the late actor Danny Thomas in thanksgiving for his successful career. He wanted to provide hope to families facing the greatest crisis of all: the severe or terminal illness of a child. Families whose children receive treatment at St. Jude's never receive a bill.

The cost of treatment and support services for families and the research that is a big part of St. Jude's is significant. The hospital estimates that it costs about $2 million a day to keep the doors open and provide the services children and their families so desperately need.

That's why we at Block O'Toole & Murphy are so passionate about supporting this effort. St. Jude's does not rest on its laurels, but is constantly expanding the knowledge of treatments for childhood illnesses such as leukemia and other childhood cancers.

The annual wine tasting event will be held this year at Guastavino's on East 59th Street. Block O'Toole & Murphy has sponsored this wine tasting since 2007; last year more than 500 people attended and the firm expects even more this year.

Firm partner and event committee chair Stephen Murphy and his partner David Scher were recently interviewed by Kevin Burke of radio station Z100 about the event on radio station z100. The station also interviewed a spokesperson from St. Jude's. Murphy said that like St. Jude's, his law firm takes on the most serious cases.

Tickets for the event can be purchased on the St. Jude's website.
