“We are often reminded that life is fragile and each moment should be relished and enjoyed,” says Joseph D.

It is part of our mission to give back to the community.”

The O'Brien group, based in Peoria, ILL, also sponsors the LPGA Charity Classic that's raised more than $2.5 million in 10 years to fight breast cancer.
