UNIVERSAL MUSIC GROUP Chairman/CEO LUCIAN GRAINGE will be honored with the CITY OF HOPE's SPIRIT OF LIFE AWARD, the organization's highest honor, for his outstanding achievements in business and dedication to philanthropic causes.
“CITY OF HOPE is honored to have the support of UNIVERSAL MUSIC GROUP and its Chairman/CEO LUCIAN GRAINGE, as we work to develop better treatments and cures for cancer and other diseases,” said CITY OF HOPE President and Chief Executive ROBERT W. STONE. “LUCIAN’s commitment to our work is well-known, as is his ability to effect change, and we’re looking forward to working with him on this year’s SPIRIT OF LIFE campaign.”
GRAINGE has vowed to apply the same innovative spirit and passion he has for the music industry to fund-raising for cancer research. The award accompanies a year-long campaign that fuels CITY OF HOPE’s ability to quickly speed new therapies and scientific breakthroughs to patients who need them.
"I am deeply honored to receive the SPIRIT OF LIFE award from CITY OF HOPE, although for me, the true reward is the knowledge that our work supporting this outstanding organization makes such a difference in the lives of so many people by fighting cancer and other life-threatening diseases,” said GRAINGE.
