Mezrah Consulting in the Community
Updated: Dec 22, 2020
Mezrah Consulting is proud to support our community through sponsoring and attending various charitable events. Below are a few recent contributions that we have made to our local community.
Mezrah Consulting has been proud to support the National Pediatric Cancer Foundation (NPCF) the past few years, sponsoring the annual Brinner of Hope (breakfast for dinner) event. This year, we continued our support by sponsoring a new event, The Sunshine Project Summit. The Summit, which was held at the Tampa Airport Marriott on February 2nd & 3rd, was an opportunity for doctors who are conducting cancer research in various hospitals throughout the US to discuss their work.
There was a networking dinner held the evening of the 2nd that was truly uplifting. Dr. Stephen Lessnick received the NPCF’s Heart of Gold award for his hard work and dedication to finding a faster cure and several families whose lives have been touched by pediatric cancer shared their stories with attendees.
The 5th Annual Companies for Kids Golf Invitational supporting Big Brothers Big Sisters of Tampa will be held on December 8, 2016, at Innisbrook Resort & Golf Club. Mezrah Consulting is proud to be sponsoring a hole at the event this year. Big Brothers Big Sisters of Tampa Bay’s mission is to “provide children facing adversity with strong and enduring, professionally supported one-to-one relationships that change their lives for the better, forever.” They serve seven counties: Hillsborough, Pinellas, Polk, Pasco, Citrus, Hernando and Sumter counties.
