Regis Corporation CFO Randy Pearce (left) and chairman and CEO Paul Finkelstein (center) presented a big check to Masonic Cancer Center director Douglas Yee, M.D., on February 4—with big intentions. The $400,000 gift from the Regis Foundation for Breast Cancer Research establishes a permanently endowed fund to support University of Minnesota research focused on preventing, treating, and curing breast cancer. The Regis Foundation, sponsored by the global hair-care giant Regis Corporation, intends to contribute a total of $2 million to the fund over the next several years. The foundation has been a longstanding supporter of breast cancer research at the Masonic Cancer Center, having given more than $1.1 million to its efforts in the past.
“At Regis Corporation, we have an ongoing commitment to raise awareness and funds for breast cancer research,” Finkelstein says. “We are proud to partner with the Masonic Cancer Center and support its important work in finding a cure for breast cancer.”
