Once again AICO (Amini Innovation Corp.) participated in the 2022 Walk For Hope for City of Hope on Sunday, November 6th raising over $43,000. The AICO All-Stars are made up of employees, executives and their families and friends. Supporters also include other members of the home furnishings community.
Walk For Hope is a City of Hope event designed to call attention to women’s cancers and their on-going research to find new treatments, drugs, therapies and cures for breast and gynecological cancers.
This is the 13th time Martin Ploy has led the AICO All-Stars as their team captain and leading fundraiser. Says Ploy, “It is always so gratifying to see the AICO Family rally together in support of this most important and significant event. The total funds raised nationally for 2022 will exceed $1.6M and since it’s inception in 1997, Walk For Hope has raised over $45 Million for City of Hope’s Women’s Cancers Program.”
AICO CEO, Michael Amini, a constant member of the AICO All-Stars, says with pride, “We believe in City of Hope and we support Walk for Hope, West Coast Golf & Tennis Tournament, and the Spirit of Life dinner in High Point. These important fund raising events are essential to continue the fight against cancer. Everyone has been touched by cancer and the on-going work, research, and results that City of Hope achieves benefits everyone, regardless of where you live.”
