Expect Miracles Foundation Continues its West Coast Expansion in the Fight Against Cancer

3rd Annual West Coast Classic Slated to Host over 200 Financial Executives From 50 Top Firms to Support Cancer Programs Nationwide

BOSTON--()--Expect Miracles Foundation (formerly Mutual Funds Against Cancer) will host its 3rd annual West Coast Classic on Monday, September 19th at the Resort at Pelican Hill in Newport Beach, CA. The event will bring together over 200 senior financial executives representing over 50 top financial firms in support of the fight against cancer. Steve Lyons, former Red Sox Major Leaguer and current Dodgers Commentator, will be the official event Emcee with other Dodgers Legends in attendance.

Expect Miracles Foundation first landed in California in 2010 to put on the inaugural West Coast Classic. Last year’s demand was so astonishing that it swiftly sold-out leading the Foundation to open two courses at this year’s tournament and double the playing field. The Foundation is elated to have 30 Sponsors onboard, strengthening relationships with West Coast constituents and spreading its message from Coast to Coast.

The Foundation has raised over $7 million to date and its corporate donors and supporters include some of the top financial institutions in the country as well as leading “C” suite executives. Expect Miracles Foundation is one of the leading advocates in the fight against cancer within the financial services industry. Proceeds benefit cancer patient care initiatives nationwide and cutting-edge cancer research at the Belfer Institute for Applied Cancer Science at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute.

In addition, the Foundation is excited to announce it will be making a donation to a West Coast charity that is enhancing the quality of life for cancer patients and their families. The selected charity will be announced and honored at the event.

“We are elated to be expanding our reach nationwide and supporting the tremendous work of cancer charities in the West Coast,” stated Frank Strauss, Founder & Chairman of Expect Miracles Foundation. “The West Coast Classic is a great opportunity to re-connect with new and longstanding supporters, as we continue to expand and strengthen our impact on the fight against cancer.”

The 2011 West Coast Classic is almost sold-out with only a few foursomes remaining. Contact Executive Director Christina E. Thirkell at cthirkell@expectmiraclesfoundation.org to reserve your spot today.
