Jerome's is thrilled to be a sponsor of the Together 4 Hope wellness event again this year. The entire Jerome's Family has a strong connection to City of Hope and the company has been a supporter since 2001.
Namesake and chairman, Jerry Navarra says, “Every family in our community is affected by this horrible disease in one way or another. We are proud to be involved, and encourage everyone to come fight the fight with us at Mission Bay.”
