This year the Mann Charitable Foundation is expanding its research efforts to include Crohn’s and colitis, liver cancer and breast cancer all of which have affected the lives of those close to the Mann’s as well as other families around the country. Donations, sponsorships, raffle events and more coupled with the Mann Charitable Foundation help to stop these terrible diseases.
Alzheimer’s disease is the most common form of dementia, which involves memory loss and other cognitive abilities that can alter one’s life. Alzheimer’s specifically accounts for 60 to 80 percent of dementia cases. As a progressive disease, Alzheimer’s symptoms worsen over time. Medications can slow the process, but there has yet to be a breakthrough in treatment for a cure.
Crohn’s and colitis are both categories of inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD). An estimated 1.6 million Americans are affected by IBD, a disease that tends to run through familial lines both male and female alike. Medical advances have been made to help alleviate the pain these inflammatory diseases cause, and dieting changes also help, but an actual cure to the disease is still up for discovery.
Liver disease can come in many forms and stages and is affected by many illnesses such as excessive drug usage, cirrhosis, alcoholism, hepatitis A, B, C, D and E and iron overload. The disease can cause painful symptoms that disrupt one’s natural life flow. Medication is offered to relieve symptoms, and treatments are available to extend life.
Breast cancer is the most common invasive cancer in women and the second main cause of cancer death in women, after lung cancer. Advancement in screening and treatment have improved survival rates and there are an estimated 3.1 million breast cancer survivors in the U.S. There are many treatments for breast cancer including radiation, surgery, targeted drug therapy, hormone therapy and chemotherapy.
We’re pleased to invite you to our 2nd Annual Leading Ladies event, where we credit women for pushing boundaries in the apparel, real estate, and finance industries.
For many years, the Mann family has held women in key positions at our many companies and continue to do so as we move forward. In support of the Time’s Up movement recently presented by the Hollywood elite at the Golden Globes, we’ve decided to follow suit and wear black in solidarity of women.
The event will be held on Monday May 7, 2018 at Rock & Reilly’s in the luxurious Renaissance Hotel located in Midtown Manhattan.
We appreciate any charitable donations to help in the fight against Alzheimer’s disease, Crohn’s and Colitis, Liver cancer, and Breast cancer at The Mann Charitable Foundation.
10th Annual Golf Outing
The Mann Charitable Foundation hosted its 10th annual golf outing at Fresh Meadow Country Club in Lake Success, New York, on September 11, 2017. The outing payed special tribute to those who lost their lives on that tragic and historic day. All signage was dressed in red, white and blue, with the words “Never Forget.” Prior to teeing off at the event, the Great Neck Fire Department provided a special tribute to those lost. The golf outing included an 18-hole golf tournament followed by an honoree ceremony, South Beach–style dinner with various stations, including passed hors d’ oeuvres, top-shelf cocktails, fresh-caught lobster, steak and a raw bar—and a raffle and grand prize were also highlights. Jeff Mann, owner and CEO of Mann Publications as well as director of Mann Charitable Foundation, has been a member of Fresh Meadow Country Club for more than 20 years and continue to plan and host events there annually.
