Miracle Makers: The Cabot Group

Outstanding Commitment by a Corporation

The Cabot GroupGolisano Children’s Hospital at the University of Rochester Medical Center (URMC) relies on generosity from our community to assist us in providing exceptional care for the tens of thousands of patients treated here. The Cabot Group has stepped up to the plate not only by recognizing the hospital’s needs, but by resolving to invest in the future care of our community’s children.

“Golisano Children’s Hospital is our region’s greatest asset,” said Mike Smith, owner of the Cabot Group. “I truly believe that. Nothing is more important than our children and Golisano Children’s Hospital addresses their needs in such a warm, personal and professional manner.”

Mike SmithAs presenting sponsor of the annual Gala in 2008 and 2009, The Cabot Group laid down a platform of support upon which two incredibly successful events were built – the latter of which brought in record-breaking donations. When The Cabot Group offered to be the presenting sponsor of the 2008 Gala, the company made a commitment to act as the leading sponsor for the next 10 years. This very generous long-term pledge will ensure the future success of the children’s hospital’s biggest fundraising event for years to come.

“The Cabot Group has made an investment in children’s health that will have a very positive impact on the lives of thousands of children,” said Bradford C. Berk, M.D., Ph.D., chief executive officer of URMC.

In addition to its Gala sponsorship, The Cabot Group has given its support as a sponsor to the annual Golf Classic and Smith has recently accepted an invitation to join Golisano Children’s Hospital’s board. Smith and his wife, Alice, also acted as honorary chairs at the 2008 Gala.

Golisano Children’s Hospital would like to thank The Cabot Group for its long-term commitment to help the children in our community receive the best medical care possible. We would like to congratulate them on their 2010 Miracle Marker award for Outstanding Commitment by a Corporation and look forward to our future partnership with such a wonderfully warmhearted local company.
