ATTORNEY RAISES FUNDS AND AWARENESS IN SUPPORT OF MS SOCIETY
St. Louis, MO – Danna McKitrick attorney James Heffner is an honoree of the Gateway Chapter of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society. Named one of the MS Corporate Achievers “Class of 2007,” Heffner and several other business leaders are recognized for career commitment and contributions to the community.
The 120 local business leaders and 22 alumni class members who made up the Class of 2007 were nominated by an advisory council of area executives. Each honoree was asked to raise at least $2,007 in contributions to fund research and programs to help fulfill the mission: to end the devastating effects of MS.
Heffner hosted a wine and cheese tasting for 30 guests and also solicited family, friends, and colleagues for donations. The whole MS Corporate Achievers campaign raised over $352,000.
“Participating in the MS Corporate Achievers Class of 2007 was an enjoyable way to build personal and business relationships while contributing to the important fight against MS,” says Heffner.
