Wilmington, DE – On Thursday, December 8, National Brownie Day, Iron Hill Brewery & Restaurant celebrated another year of its long-time partnership with CureSearch for Children’s Cancer by presenting its annual donation. Since 2004, Iron Hill has donated a portion of the proceeds from its Triple Chocolate Hill dessert to exclusively benefit CureSearch’s mission to end children’s cancer. This year’s donation to CureSearch was $22,874.51, making Iron Hill’s total donations to date over $230,000!
Presenting the check to Kelli Wright, National Director, Business Development at CureSearch, were Mark Edelson and Kevin Finn, co-founders of Iron Hill.
“Our goal in supporting a national charity is to use the success of our business to give back in the most meaningful way possible. When looking for a charity, it is important that it has wide impact on all of the communities we serve and that it maximizes the use of the funds towards direct impact. We have found CureSearch to be a great partner to meet these goals,” said Mark Edelson.
In addition to presenting a check that day, Iron Hill doubled all donations from its Triple Chocolate Hill dessert sales – from $0.75 to $1.50 per dessert – towards CureSearch’s lifesaving mission.
“We are grateful for partners like Iron Hill because they truly believe in our mission to end children’s cancer,” said Kelli Wright. “For twelve years they have donated funds to help advance research, and it’s because of their generosity and support that we can continue to fight to save children’s lives.”
Home brewers Kevin Finn and Mark Edelson, as well as restauranteur Kevin Davies, are not just the founders of Iron Hill Brewery & Restaurant – they are also passionate supporters of children’s cancer research. They were initially made aware of the impact of children’s cancer from Mark’s wife, Maureen, who is a pediatric oncologist. Since their partnership with CureSearch, they have become even more dedicated to its mission to find a cure for all children with cancer.
CureSearch for Children’s CancerCureSearch for Children’s Cancer, a national nonprofit organization based in Bethesda, Md, works to end childhood cancer by driving targeted and innovative research with measurable results in an accelerated time frame. CureSearch is building a $10 million research pipeline to aggressively drive pediatric research grants and clinical trials that have a higher chance of becoming cures for children’s cancer without the toxic side effects that plague current treatment options.
