At The Overture Group, we always enjoy sharing the accomplishments of our employees and the ventures they pursue in addition to their work for our organization. This is why we are excited to share the news that the CFO Leadership Group, a project founded in 2009 by our very own John Liacone, has raised $6,500 for the American Red Cross of Chicago and Northern Illinois.
Each year, the CFOLG holds an late summer golf outing, in which members of the group raise money for a charity of their choosing. This year, members voted on the American Red Cross as the recipient, and raised funds for the donation at the September 2014 golf outing held at the prestigious public Bridges of Poplar Creek in Hoffman Estates.
The 2014 charity golf outing brought together CFOs from leading organizations, raising a total of $6,500 after costs. This gift was presented by CFOLG Golf Committee Chair and Ventiv Technology CFO Nick Pessimisis to Major Gift Officer of the American Red Cross Mary Novak at a January 2015 CFOLG Networking event.
