Sage Dental recently announced that its CFO, Mark Brockelman, raised $245,000 for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) with the support of Sage Dental, its employees, and partners. The group more than doubled Brockelman’s initial fundraising goal of $100,000. The donations will go to LLS to support blood cancer research and treatments.
Since March 9, 2023, local leaders in the community have dedicated their time and effort to raising critical funds for LLS. The top fundraisers of the LLS campaign were announced Friday, May 19 at the Loggerhead Marinelife Center in Juno Beach, Florida. Sage’s Brockelman was the top fundraiser out of 10 candidates, achieving the honor of the first-ever Visionary of the Year for Palm Beach – Treasure Coast.
“LLS has such an important mission, and it was a privilege to contribute to their efforts,” said Brockelman. “I could not have achieved this great accomplishment without the support of Sage Dental and my partner vendors, who whole-heartedly jumped in to help me and LLS throughout the campaign. My fight for this cause is very personal, as I have lost two very special people in my life. My wife, Jan Brockelman, passed away 13 years ago to Melanoma, and my Uncle Dick Simmons just a few weeks ago to Leukemia. I am humbled by this recognition and look forward to continuing this partnership with LLS. Together, I am hopeful we can find a cure for blood cancer.”
As a company dedicated to patient-focused, value-conscious, and community-minded dentistry, Sage Dental recognizes the importance of supporting causes that benefit the health and well-being of individuals and families. As a result of this dedication, the team, and partnering vendors were eager to showcase their support surrounding this initiative.
“Sage Dental’s cutting-edge clinical innovations and proprietary software platform are just a tiny part of our commitment to delivering the best patient care and experience in the dental industry,” said President and Chief Executive Officer Thomas Marler. “Our focus on creating a modern, family-friendly approach to dentistry aligns with Mark’s dedication to improving the lives of families affected by blood cancers. We’re so proud to see the results of Mark and the team’s efforts and even more thrilled to see those imperative efforts recognized by LLS.”
As a result of this fundraising effort, LLS fundraised over $701,000 from the 10 candidates of the Palm Beach – Treasure Coast 2023 Visionaries of the Year list.
