Counsel Financial announced this week that it will host the largest annual fundraising event for the Mikey’s Way Foundation again in 2017. The law firm financing company has pledged its support of the Drive for Dreams benefit for eight successive years and is proud to be heavily involved in the pediatric cancer foundation.

The two-day Drive for Dreams affair, comprised of a gala and golf tournament, will kick off on Sunday, August 6.

The team at Counsel Financial encourages a mindset of community involvement and all of the staff is eager to step up and volunteer their time and talents to this worthy…
