PLYMOUTH, Wis., Jan. 16, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Sartori Company announced today the results of its 2013 Partnership with the Milwaukee Brewers Radio Network in support of the MACC Fund (Midwest Athletes Against Childhood Cancer). During the 2013 MLB season, Sartori made a special donation to the MACC Fund in conjunction with the first Brewers pitching change of every game. A check of $25,000 was presented to the MACC Fund on Thursday, January 16th by Sartori CEO Jim Sartori and his wife, Jan.
The MACC Fund is a non-profit organization dedicated to funding research into pediatric cancer and related blood disorders. Fundraising is based on the concept of "a good time for a good cause." Money raised from special events, like the Sartori Company Sponsorship, comprises about 75% of the MACC Fund's annual income. Since the inception of the MACC Fund in 1976, the overall cure rate for childhood cancer has risen from 20% to 80% thanks to skilled researchers, dedicated caregivers and the collaborative generosity of people supporting the MACC Fund and other charitable organizations. Thanks to partnerships like Sartori and the Milwaukee Brewers Radio Network, the MACC Fund has contributed more than $48 million to research in Wisconsin, helping children throughout the state, the nation and the world.
"We believe it's important for us to continue our support of the MACC Fund. It is such a great organization, we urge other companies and individuals to join in and support this cause. The five-year survival rate for childhood cancer is 80%. Although this is good, there is room to save more lives. As we continue to support MACC Fund, we hope our donations will be able to help improve that number," states Jim Sartori. "We're very fortunate as a company to be in a position to assist others. This year with our 75th anniversary, we plan to continue these efforts."
