One in eight women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetimes. Luckily, there are a number of ways to support those affected by breast cancer. Lunch for the Cure is one event that brought the Portland community together. For those who recognize the importance of investing in saving lives and ending breast cancer, this luncheon was the perfect way to help fundraise for a cure. Frontier Management is a proud advocate of this event.
Keynote speaker Nelson Farris shared his very personal story about breast cancer, and the loss of his wife to the disease. Farris’s presentation was compelling. “It’s not easy to jump back and forth between tragedy and comedy,” mentioned Pat Brown, Frontier Management’s Chief Financial Officer, “but he did a great job keeping us all invested in what he had to share. The message will resonate with us for a long time.”
The Komen foundation supports survivors, honors loved ones, spreads advocacy, and raises funds to help end breast cancer forever. This remarkable event broke records, and raised more than $334,000 for the cause. The foundation will use these assets to build an even stronger organization geared towards finding a cure.
Frontier looks forward to a continued partnership with Komen.New Venture Championship

Day 1 opened with Capital Connections; connecting capital seekers with select capital providers. There was a golf theme, and advisors served as “caddies” offering sound advice to help capital seekers; partnering with them so they can make informed decisions and create the right goals in order to excel.
