Annual Fundraiser Sponsored by Hytec Dealer Services, PSIGEN Software, and Continuum
The Cannata Report’s 34th Annual Awards & Charities Dinner, sponsored by Hytec Dealer Services, PSIGEN Software, Inc. and Continuum will raise funds for Tackle Kids Cancer, a philanthropic program benefitting the Children’s Cancer Institute at Hackensack Meridian Health. The event will be held Thursday, November 7 at The Madison Hotel in Morristown, New Jersey.
This is the second year in a row we will raise funds for Tackle Kids Cancer. It also represents the 5th time we are partnering with Hackensack Meridian Health the annual fundraiser, having previously raised funds to establish endowments honoring industry colleagues, and contributing to the John Theurer Cancer Center. To date, we have raised close to $750,000 for Hackensack University Medical Center Foundation alone and collectively raised $2.5 million dollars for charitable causes nationwide.
“When Joseph Burt, vice president, development, Hackensack University Medical Center Foundation, spoke at our dinner last year, he said something that took me by surprise: pediatric cancer research is underfunded because children make up a small percentage of cancer patients and the pharmaceutical industry doesn’t consider it as lucrative as adult cancer research. For that reason, we have pledged this year’s fundraising efforts once again to Tackle Kids Cancer and the amazing team at the Children’s Cancer Institute to help fund its current programs focused on finding a cure for childhood cancer,” said CJ Cannata, president and CEO.
“Based on their past success and with additional matching funds generated this year, The Cannata Report’s charity dinner will approach an extraordinary milestone of contributing $1 million in funds raised for the Hackensack UMC Foundation. We are extremely grateful to Frank, his wife Carol and their son CJ for their continued generosity and friendship,” added Burt.
“With each passing year, our event, and our gratitude, grows exponentially because of the overwhelming support we receive from our generous sponsors, client partners, and subscribers,” said Frank G. Cannata, founder of The Cannata Report. “We are overjoyed the Cannata Dinner has allowed us to make a substantial contribution to Hackensack UMC Foundation headquartered in our home state of New Jersey.”
Winners of the Frank Awards that are determined by our Annual Dealer Survey sponsored by TIAA Bank will be announced at the dinner. New this year is an award that will recognize excellence in IT Services.
