A raffle and auction also took place along with entertainment from Midnight Piano Band. A mix of elegance but with a laid-back, casual feel, sponsors, vendors, volunteers and attendees played a key role in raising money and awareness for ACS, the American Cancer Society’s Metro East Chapter.

“It’s unusual to find anyone that hasn’t somehow been affected by cancer, whether it’s a loved one, family member or friend,” said Randy Gori, founding partner of Gori Julian & Associates. “This local event does a wonderful job raising funds that go towards cancer education, research, and patient services and we were happy to be part of the evening.”

Gori Julian & Associates was formed in 2008 by Randy Gori and Barry Julian and since has recovered more than $3 billion in compensation for those suffering as a result of asbestos exposure.
