A special message . . .

BVWireIssue #155-2
August 12, 2015

Neil Beaton (Alvarez & Marsal) has sent BVWire a special message, and we would like to share it. “Many of you have worked with, or have come into contact with, Robert Duffy at some point in the past and know him as a pillar in the valuation community. Bob has been my business partner for over 25 years but has been battling ALS (Lou Gehrig’s disease) for the past five years. I want to let you know about an initiative that his wife, Karen, and I are spearheading along with Mike Shannon of Answer ALS that culminates in a tribute to be held on September 20 at the VFW Hall on Mercer Island in Washington.”

Beaton explains that, although Bob’s body is being ravaged by ALS, his spirit is strong and he wants to help other ALS patients with new technology to increase the quality of life as much and as long as possible. The Answer ALS initiative is designed to provide funding for more ALS research. BVWire joins with Beaton in urging you to please visit the site, give what you can, and mark your calendar for the September 20 event, which will start at around 3 p.m.
