MC Companies Continues to be an Industry Leader by Donating $100,000 to 2019 Autism Speaks Walk in Partnership with SARRC

PHOENIX - Dec. 3, 2019 - PRLog -- MC Companies has been a long-standing supporter of the autism community and continued their role as an industry leader by donating $100,000 to the Autism Speaks Walk in Partnership with SARRC.  With a long history of strong support, 2019 marked the most impactful year for MC Companies and their Sharing the Good Life Foundation.

The 2019 Autism Speaks Walk in Partnership with SARRC drew over 10,000 people to Tempe Beach Park on October 27th, 2019 and together raised over $600,000.  Not only did MC Companies raise $100,000 for the walk, Lesley Brice, President and Partner of MC Residential LLC served as the walk chair. "It was an honor and privilege to serve as the 2019 walk chair," says Brice.  "Autism Speaks, SARRC and the entire autism community are made up of some incredible people that make this annual event a reality."

Since first becoming involved, MC Companies has donated over $500,000 to the Autism Speaks Walk in Partnership with SARRC.  Not only has MC raised an incredible amount of money, MC Companies has created the Hours4Autism program that gives employees and employers the ability to turn unused paid benefits into funds needed for autism research and resources.

When asked, MC's leadership will tell you their greatest achievement in supporting autism is becoming an industry leader in bringing their peers within the property management industry to the table.

"We have been working for many years to bring more members of our industry to the table.  We have now seen the Arizona Multifamily Association join us in our support which is a huge win," says Lesley Brice.  "We are so thankful for their support, but aren't stopping there.  We are currently working with the National Apartment Association to bring them to the table as well." As of 2019, the National Apartment Association has officially added the Hours4Autism program to their website, opening the door to yearlong donations nationwide.

Dressed in their tie-dyed walk team shirts, the entire MC Family came together yet again for the 2019 walk.  Sponsoring snow cone machines, raffling off several all-inclusive cruise vacations, and bringing their incredible energy to Tempe Beach Park, MC Companies made a huge difference and had a blast doing it.

If you or your company wants to get involved with the 2020 Autism Speaks Walk in Partnership with SARRC, go to the Autism Speaks website and learn what incredible opportunities are waiting for you.

Streep, Miranda and Stone are named as Met Gala co-0chairs

Dec 7, 2019

NEW YORK — Next year's Met Gala may be the closest we'll ever come to getting a Miranda Priestly moment at the starry event. Meryl Streep has been named as a co-chair of the Metropolitan Museum of Art's Costume Institute. The Oscar-winner played Priestly, a thinly veiled fictional version of Vogue editor Anna Wintour, in the movie "The Devil Wears Prada." Wintour clearly has no hard feelings because she selected Streep as a co-chair along with Lin-Manuel Miranda and fellow Oscar-winner Emma Stone. Designer Nicolas Ghesquiere rounds out the group. The gala's theme is "About Time: Fashion and Duration," which...

ABC says interview with Epstein accuser wasn't ready to air

Dec 7, 2019

NEW YORK — ABC News faced questions Tuesday about its reluctance to air a sensitive story of alleged sexual misconduct after a leaked video emerged of reporter Amy Robach complaining about how her bosses handled an interview with a Jeffrey Epstein accuser. The conservative web site Project Veritas released video of Robach venting that "every day I get more and more pissed" that her 2015 interview with Virginia Giuffre never made the air. Robach made her remarks late in August while sitting in a Times Square studio with a microphone but not on the air. ABC said Tuesday that the...

From toast of town to toxic: Facebook CEO on outs with Dems

Dec 7, 2019

WASHINGTON — Mark Zuckerberg's social network in Washington is shrinking. Bipartisan hostility toward Facebook has been building for months. It's been fueled by a series of privacy scandals, Facebook's use by Russian operatives in the 2016 presidential campaign and accusations that the service crushes competitors. Now, with the 2020 elections approaching, Democrats especially are homing in on Facebook's conduct and its refusal to fact-check political ads and remove the false ones. Zuckerberg's new strategy involves a personal blitz featuring private meetings in Washington with key lawmakers of both parties and President Donald Trump; small, off-the-record dinners at his California home...

Scorsese, De Niro and Pacino on time and 'The Irishman'

Dec 7, 2019

NEW YORK — They come into the room not like the moveable Mount Rushmore that they are but like three old friends, energized by being in each other's company. They are chatting about movies. Martin Scorsese comes first, then Al Pacino, then Robert De Niro. They're trailed by a small army of publicists and assistants that quickly recedes out of the room. Constant through the momentary commotion is Scorsese enthusiastically remembering Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger's "A Matter of Life and Death," and quoting its lines to a rapt Pacino. Their movie, "The Irishman," also deals majestically with matters of...
