Thanks for flagging, Eugene. We have gone through all the links and are in the process of gathering contact info for each organization or publication; we will reach out to each and request all photos of you and Brooke together be removed. Will update you when we hear back. There are a couple pictures of you and Brooke at Foundation events on the site – all of them are carryovers from the old Foundation site, Please see below and let me know if you’d like to replace them: This blog post on the Dierks Bentley event from 2016 features a photo of you and Brooke with Dierks and Sophia Victoria. A press release from 2016 features a picture of you, Brooke, your parents and the Chabad of Southside team at the synagogue opening. A press release from 2016 about the Mount Sinai 5K the Foundation sponsored features a photo of you, Brooke, Aaron and his family. While doing some Google research, we also found this photo on Facebook from your wedding – would you like us to reach out to the wedding stylist who posted it? Hope you all had a safe and relaxing Thanksgiving. We will keep you posted on any communications we have with these organizations. Thanks, Caroline

MIAMI, Fla., October 16, 2016— The Finker-Frenkel Family Foundation, a family-run charitable organization dedicated to creating a generational legacy of giving, sponsored the Village of Bal Harbour 5k Run. All of the proceeds benefited the Mount Sinai Comprehensive Cancer Center, a national facility that utilizes a collaborative multidisciplinary approach to diagnosing and treating a broad range of cancers.

“Our foundation has had a long-standing relationship with Mount Sinai. We knew it would be a great opportunity to support the local cancer center while raising community awareness,” said Eugene Frenkel, Director of The Finker-Frenkel Family Foundation. “In 2016, it is estimated that nearly 1.7 million new cases of cancer will be diagnosed and nearly 600,000 people will succumb to the disease. The money raised during this event will allow Mount Sinai to provide the care and research needed to eradicate such debilitating and deadly diseases.”

Starting on 96th Street and concluding at Bal Harbour City Hall, the nearly 150 entrants ran to raise money and awareness for Mount Sinai’s work in cancer research.

This year’s event, co-hosted by the Village of Bal Harbour and the Bal Harbour Police Department, raised $5,620 in support of Mount Sinai’s mission to provide high quality care to the Bal Harbour community. One hundred percent of the proceeds went directly to the center.
