In April 2014, Lipsitz & Ponterio reached its Facebook campaign goal to benefit Roswell Park Cancer Institute (RPCI). From October 1, 2013 through April 1, 2014, the firm raised funds through its Facebook page in order to help further mesothelioma research at RPCI. For each new “like” received on Lipsitz & Ponterio’s Facebook page, one dollar was donated to RPCI, for a total cash donation of $5,000.
“Our firm’s mesothelioma clients have been treated with great care and compassion by the medical staff at Roswell Park Cancer Institute, especially by Dr. Grace Dy and her research team. That is why we chose to support RPCI in our recent Facebook campaign,” said firm partner Michael A. Ponterio.
The firm has also sponsored RPCI’s All Star Night Gala and two lung cancer events: the Breath of Life Celebration in October 2013, and most recently, in May 2014, A Taste for Life, which raised $42,000 to support a promising genetic test for lung cancer developed at Roswell Park.
