CG Giving Back – ENF Foundation 13th Annual Harvest for Hope Fundraiser



This Sunday is the Harvest for Hope Fundraiser to support the Emilio Nares Foundation (ENF). The 13th Annual Harvest of Hope fundraiser is a fine wine and cuisine fundraising event, raising funds for low-income, underprivileged families whose children are battling cancer. The foundation is near and dear to the Corrao Group’s core. So dear that, Jack Corrao, Managing Director of Corrao Group stated that “Corrao group has adopted ENF as our Salesforce 1-1-1 model.” The Salesforce 1% model consists of pledging 1% of equity,1% of time, and 1% of product/service.

The Emilio Nares Foundation was founded by Richard and Diana Nares in honor of their brave child, Emilio, who battled and lost his life to Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL). Since 2003, ENF has supported childrens’ recovery from cancer, and helps families navigate their child’s journey through cancer. Emilio spirits shines through more than 250 children each year whose battle against cancer are strengthen by ENF programs.

A 2013 review published in the Journal of Community Health found that around 25 percent of lower-income patients have missed or rescheduled their appointments due to lack of transportation. These issues lead to missed appointments, delayed treatment and the decision to abandon treatment entirely. ENF solves this problem with their flagship Program, Ride with Emilio, which ensures children reach their cancer treatment on time, every time, when no other options are available. Patients may use this free,  hygienicsafe and dependable transportation service for months or years, depending on need. Ride with Emilo has been recognized by President Obama on national TV and in a case study by U.S Surgeon General National Call to Action Report.
