A Barron’s Top Financial Advisor, Gary Fournier has served clients as a managing director at JP Morgan in Los Angeles for nearly a decade. In addition to his activities at JP Morgan, Gary Fournier works to give back to others through his support of organizations like the Miller Children’s & Women’s Hospital in Long Beach, California.
In a recent press release, the Miller Children’s & Women’s Hospital announced that it received a major fundraising boost from the 6th Annual Tour of Long Beach, which took place on Saturday, May 9, 2015. Over 3,000 cyclists participated in the event and helped raise a total of $320,000 for the Jonathan Jaques Children’s Cancer Center (JJCCC), one of eight care centers located within Miller Children’s.
The funds will be used by the center to support its research efforts aimed at developing innovative treatments for pediatric cancer patients. In addition, a portion of the funds will help support JJCCC’s comprehensive psychosocial programs, which help patients and their families learn to cope with the challenges associated with childhood cancer.
