West Palm Beach, FL. – As individuals across the country raise awareness for breast cancer during the month of October, Kelley Kronenberg Principal Partner and Chief Operating Officer, Howard Wander, is supporting the effort in South Florida through the Susan G. Komen BigWig Fundraiser. Mr. Wander joins six other community leaders from Palm Beach and St. Lucie Counties to raise funds and bring awareness to this disease.
“Every person I know has a friend or relative that has battled this terrible disease. Breast cancer touches everyone. We all would love to make a difference in this fight, which is why I decided to participate with this fundraiser in a significant way,” said Mr. Wander.
A BigWig is a community leader who has a passion for helping the women in the local community receive access to breast health care. Through this program, Mr. Wander has made a commitment to raise funds to support these much needed services. The BigWig participant who raises the most money will get a photograph portrait of themselves wearing a custom pink wig displayed in the front window of Saks Fifth Avenue at the Gardens Mall.
“We fully support Howard’s commitment to the BigWig fundraiser and hope that his efforts will inspire others around the community to join us in donating to this worthy cause,” said Kelley Kronenberg CFO, Heath Eskalyo, who directs the firm’s philanthropic efforts.
Individuals interested in donating can do so by mailing a check to Kelley Kronenberg’s West Palm Beach office, 1475 Centrepark Blvd., Suite 275, West Palm Beach, FL 33401. Checks should be made out to Komen South Florida C/O Howard Wander. On the memo line please note BigWig Howard Wander.

As of 2014, funds raised by Komen South Florida through events like this have provided more than $13.4 million dollars for almost 400 communities and small grants to local programs in the area.
