Sartori Cheese Partners with Milwaukee Admirals to Support MACC Fund
Sartori Company is excited to announce they have partnered with the Milwaukee Admirals hockey organization to help support the Midwest Athletes Against Childhood Cancer (MACC) Fund. For each Admiral’s Power Play this season, Sartori will make a charitable donation to the organization and the Admirals will match the final donation amount.
“We are very fortunate to partner with the Admirals to continue our support of the MACC Fund. The MACC Fund is an amazing organization that is successfully increasing the five-year survival rate for childhood cancer,” stated Sartori president Jeff Schwager.
Sartori, producers of award winning artisan cheese, is celebrating their 75thAnniversary this year with an even greater focus on community support and volunteering throughout Wisconsin and across the country. “One of our core values is commitment. We focus on giving back and one way we achieve this is through partnerships with the MACC Fund, Make-A-Wish® Wisconsin, and local food pantries among other charities,” stated Sartori CEO and owner, Jim Sartori.
The MACC Fund is a non-profit organization dedicated to funding research into pediatric cancer and related blood disorders. Fundraising is based on the concept of “a good time for a good cause.” Money raised from special events, like Sartori’s partnership with the Milwaukee Admirals, comprises about 75% of the MACC Fund’s annual income. Since the inception of the MACC Fund in 1976, the overall cure rate for childhood cancer has risen from 20% to 80% thanks to skilled researchers, dedicated caregivers and the collaborative generosity of people supporting the MACC Fund and other charitable organizations. Thanks to partnerships like Sartori and the Milwaukee Admirals, the MACC Fund has contributed $52 million to childhood cancer and related blood disorder research.
