The Return of The Lorax:
 
 
 

         In 2014 we hope to build on the remarkable success of 2013, The Triumph Fund's inaugural year.  Almost 170 people attended last year's fundraising event, Honoring The Lorax, and by the end of 2013 we had proudly donated almost $30,000 to the Clinical Trials Office at the Medical College of Wisconsin.

     
I.  HONORING THE LORAX II. 
The Lorax returns to Wisconsin in 2014 with our new event,  Honoring The Lorax II.  Due to the success of last year's event, with over 160 attendees, we could not help but invite The Lorax back for an encore and add some new twists. 

       The festivities will take place during the evening of Sunday, August 17, 2014 in the beautiful Ballroom of the Wisconsin Club, 900 W. Wisconsin Ave., Milwaukee.  (For directions, please see the below map.)  

       The event will begin at 5:00 pm, with doors opening at 4:30.  There will be appetizers, dinner, dessert, and complimentary wine and soda.  It is expected that a musical group will provide entertainment during the dinner part of the evening. 

       Interspersed with the fun and laughter, there will be brief presentations.   Dr. James P. Thomas, Medical Director of MCW's Clinical Trials Office, will make an interesting presentation on clinical trials and explain how they bring potentially life-saving treatments to a patient, many of whom have few if any remaining treatment options.  Moreover, an MCW Executive will discuss MCW's efforts to receive the prestigious National Cancer Institute Cancer Center designation, a designation which likely will lead to further funding for cancer research at MCW and result in the increased presence of pharmaceutical and biotechnlogy companies and independent scientists in the Milwaukee area.
