Local financial firm supports childhood cancer initiatives

When tasked with taking lemons and making lemonade, patrons were happy to oblige the request at the Lemon Ball, a recent fundraiser to help battle childhood cancer. The efforts and monies raised on behalf of Alex’s Lemonade Stand, a nonprofit dedicated to funding research, delivering financial assistance and relief of side effects of treatments in children, were spearheaded by brokers, staff and friends of the local and regional Northwestern Mutual offices throughout the Southeast.

Strong support from the local Jacksonville office, headquartered nearby on Riverside Avenue, was shown during the festivities. Alongside Northwestern Mutual, donors showed up from other industries and related partners got dressed up in their best lemon-yellow attire to help accelerate the search for a cure to pediatric cancers. Hosts of the June 15 event at the Cummer Museum of Art and Gardens were Bill and Denette Koch.
