Hanley Investment Group Real Estate Advisors, a nationally recognized real estate brokerage and advisory firm specializing in retail property sales, announced today that the firm has raised $25,000 during its annual Movember campaign. This marks Hanley Investment Group’s eighth year in a row joining the global movement to raise awareness and critical funds for men’s health, by growing a mustache in November. Hanley Investment Group has raised nearly $212,000 for the Movember Foundation since 2011.
“I participate in Movember every year in memory of my dad who passed away from prostate cancer,” said Hanley Investment Group’s President Ed Hanley. “He died too young and his family and friends miss him very much.”
Hanley adds, “I don’t want other families and individuals to have to go through what we did. We want to help save lives and families with our fundraising efforts.” Prostate cancer is the second most common cancer in men in the U.S.
The men of Hanley Investment Group started clean shaven on November 1st and for the rest of the month, these men, known as “Mo’ Bros,” groomed and trimmed their mustaches to effectively become walking, talking billboards for the 30 days of November. Mo’ Bros, along with “Mo’ Sistas” at Hanley Investment Group, raised funds by seeking out sponsorships for the Mo’ Bros’ mustache-growing efforts.
This year, like previous years, Hanley Investment Group’s fundraising efforts landed the firm in the top 1%, a ranking of #25 among 3,868 teams in the U.S. Hanley Investment Group’s President Ed Hanley received the most donations in the company and was ranked in the top 100 out of 60,000 Mo’ Bros nationwide. Hanley Investment Group’s COO Dawn Eisenberg was the second top donation producer at the firm and was ranked #11 out of 6,000 Mo’ Sistas nationwide. Proceeds are directed to programs that are run by the Movember Foundation and the organization’s men’s health partners.
“I am so grateful for all the support of everyone who works at Hanley Investment Group, our business colleagues, friends and family,” said Hanley. “Their financial support truly has and continues to play an important role in delivering breakthrough research and support services to allow men to live longer, healthier, and happier lives.”
