The National Business Products Industry (NBPI) has raised more than $16 million in the past year for City of Hope.
A cheque of $16.3 million was presented to the cancer research and care organisation at last night’s NBPI Spirit of Life gala dinner in Chicago (IL). The evening – which attracted an attendance of around 430 – was in honour of Peter Scala, Chief Merchandising Officer at Staples Inc, who was the 2022 Spirit of Life honouree and spearheaded the fundraising efforts.
Next year’s Spirit of Life honouree is ACCO Brands CEO Boris Elisman, who will be leading a campaign called ACCOmplishing Hope.
NBPI at City of Hope is made up of philanthropic and volunteer leaders across sectors, including office products, technology, food service, retailers and more. Since 1983, NBPI has raised almost $250 million to support research and patient care for life-threatening diseases, such as cancer and diabetes.
