Bibby Financial Services Sponsors Two Headline Events in L.A. to Raise Funds for City of Hope

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwired - Oct 18, 2013) -  Bibby Financial Services is proud to announce its sponsorship of two headline events in the Los Angeles area that will raise money for City of Hope, a leader in cancer research and patient care. 

Bibby Financial Services will be the Official Financial Partner of L.A. Fashion Weekend at Sunset Gower Studios, Hollywood, CA, Oct. 18 to 20. During the weekend of high-end fashion shows hosted by The Gallery L.A., Bibby Financial Services will look to raise awareness and funds for City of Hope. The company will make a donation for every hole-in-one at its putting green during pre-show festivities. It will also recognize personal donations through the Bibby Financial Services' Tree of Hope, adjacent to the company's booth.

On Nov. 8, Bibby Financial Services will also sponsor the Black and Blues Ball, hosted by City of Hope. Live entertainment by 5-time Grammy Award-winning artist Robert Cray will kick off the event that seeks to raise funds for City of Hope and acknowledge its many accomplishments over the past 100 years.

City of Hope is requesting donated items for an auction that will be held during the event. Proceeds from the auction will help to fund research projects that will focus on accelerating scientific discovery for the benefit of patients worldwide.
