BETHESDA, Md., Nov. 30, 2017 /PRNewswire/ — ROSS Companies, a leader in multifamily acquisitions, property management and renovation in the Mid-Atlantic region, today announced that it has received the Gift of Life Award from The Children’s Cancer Foundation (CCF). The Columbia, Md.-based CCF is an independent nonprofit whose mission is to raise funds to support facilities, research and programs to aid in the treatment and cure of pediatric cancer.
ROSS Companies received the award in part for the $52,025 that the company and its corporate partners recently raised for CCF. Dave Miskovich, CEO of ROSS Companies, accepted on behalf of the company.
“It is a real honor to receive this award and to be able to help The Children’s Cancer Foundation. This is an amazing, inspiring organization that is doing truly heroic work in the battle against pediatric cancer,” Miskovich said. “We are so thankful to our corporate partners for helping us raise this money, and we look forward to continuing to support the foundation in the years ahead. Giving back to the community and helping those in need is one of ROSS’s core operating principles, and it’s a responsibility that we will always take very seriously.”
“The Children’s Cancer Foundation was honored to present the 2017 Gift of Life Award to CEO Dave Miskovich and ROSS Companies,” said Tasha Museles, executive director of CCF. “ROSS’s outstanding commitment to philanthropy and our local community made them an obvious nominee for this award. Together, we share a common goal of furthering research to find cures for pediatric cancer.”
During the recent annual gala, CCF presented a check for $33,000 to The Children’s Inn at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) in Bethesda, Md. The donations of ROSS employees contributed to that total as well, as ROSS team members held various fundraisers throughout the year with the proceeds going to CCF and designated to The Children’s Inn.
The Children’s Inn at NIH is a residential “place like home” for families with children participating in leading-edge research studies at NIH.
