NORTHBROOK, Ill. -- The Bureaus, Inc., a compliance and technology-driven master servicer for accounts receivable portfolios and longtime champion for children’s health and well-being, today announced its sponsorship of Giving Rocks 2019, a special benefit concert to help raise awareness and funds for pediatric cancer research. The concert benefits the Giving Rocks Foundation and takes place on October 11, 2019, from 7-10:30 pm at Evanston Rocks in Evanston, IL. Featuring a lineup of musical talent, the event also features homemade Italian food and drinks and both live and silent auctions through which the Giving Rocks Foundation will raise money towards awareness and research for Langerhan’s Cell Histiocytosis (LCH) and other underfunded pediatric cancers.
The Giving Rocks Foundation
The Giving Rocks Foundation is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization that was started in 2007 by ten-year-old Sydney Martin after she was diagnosed with Langerhan’s Cell Histiocytosis (LCH), a potentially fatal blood disease lacking sufficient funding and research. At age 8, Syd began collecting rocks from the shores of Lake Michigan and making unique rock necklaces which she sold to raise money for pediatric medical research. After Syd won her battle against LCH, she vowed to continue her fight for a cure and turned her passion project into a successful nonprofit organization, the Giving Rocks Foundation. To this day, Syd’s rock necklaces are the lifeline of the organization with 100% of the proceeds going towards LCH research. Syd and the Giving Rocks Foundation believes that every rock can lead to a cure.
“We are proud to support the Giving Rocks Foundation and help in their mission to increase awareness, funding, and medical research that will lead to a cure of LCH and eliminate all pediatric cancer,” says Michael Slotky, CEO of The Bureaus, Inc. “We hope that our sponsorship of Giving Rocks 2019 inspires others to join the fight against pediatric cancer and support the brave children and their families who are battling cancer around the world. Only 4% of the billions of dollars spent on cancer research and treatment is directed towards pediatric cancer. The Giving Rocks Foundation is providing critically needed support that not only helps to fund research, it also provides hope for giving children another day, and eventually, a life without cancer.”
