Financial Services Cares Gala 2014

The 9th Annual American Cancer Society Financial Services Cares Gala took place on June 24th at Cipriani 42nd Street in New York City. The evening centered on the presentation of two awards: The Financial Services Cares Distinguished Service Award and The Eugene D. O’Kelly Award.

The Financial Services Cares Distinguished Service Award will be presented for the second time this year to a company or organization for their philanthropic efforts in the fight against cancer. The Eugene D. O’Kelly Award was created in memory of KPMG’s former CEO and chairman, Gene O’Kelly, who was diagnosed with cancer in 2005. Gene was committed to promoting philanthropy and volunteerism in the workplace, and instituted company policy to positively impact employee wellness. Gene lost his battle several months after his diagnosis, but his wife Corinne continues his efforts by serving as the Gala Legacy Chair.
