Hanley Investment Group, a nationally-recognized boutique real estate brokerage and advisory firm specializing in the sale of retail properties, announced today that the group raised over $30,000 during its annual Movember campaign. This marks Hanley Investment Group’s seventh 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 more than $187,000 for the Movember Foundation since 2011.
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 #32 among 9,695 teams in the U.S. Hanley Investment Group’s President Ed Hanley received the most donations in the company and was ranked #31 out of 60,285 Mo’ Bros nationwide. Hanley Investment Group’s COO Dawn Eisenberg was the second top donation producer at the firm and was ranked #13 out of 6,192 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 TRULY HUMBLED AND GRATEFUL FOR ALL THE SUPPORT OF EVERYONE WHO WORKS AT HANLEY INVESTMENT GROUP,” SAID HANLEY. “I COULDN’T ASK FOR A BETTER GROUP OF PEOPLE THAT ARE COMMITTED 100 PERCENT IN ALL THAT THEY DO!”
This fundraising effort hits very close to home with Hanley. “This cause means a great deal to me as I lost my father to prostate cancer in 2009. I don’t want other families and individuals to have to go through what we did. We are hoping to save lives and families with this fundraising effort.” Prostate cancer is the second most common cancer in men in the U.S.
“Especially during the Holiday Season, we are ever mindful of our blessings both on a professional level as well as a personal level, and raising money and awareness for the Movember Foundation is just one of the many ways we at Hanley Investment Group like to give back to our community. We certainly couldn’t do this without the very generous support of our friends, family and business colleagues. We are grateful to all those that helped us achieve success in business as well as to help save lives.”
Since 2003, the Movember Foundation has empowered millions of men and women to join the global men’s health movement. Through the mustaches that are grown, the connections created, and the conversations generated, the Movember community has funded more than 1,200 men’s health projects in 21 countries to date. This work is helping men live happier, healthier, and longer lives through investing in these key areas: prostate cancer, testicular cancer, mental health, and suicide prevention.
