Retired Managing Director at Merrill Lynch in Wayzata, MN
Peter Eckerline is a kind-hearted and generous individual who wants to make a difference in the lives of others. Last Thanksgiving, he and his family put together a memorable concert for their friends to raise funds for Pinky Swear - an organization that assists those affected by children's cancer. The event was not just a beautiful celebration but also a way to show support for the families stricken with this terrible disease.
The Eckerlines do something different each year to raise money for charity. The year before last, the Thanksgiving party supported Second Harvest Heartland, one of the largest hunger relief agencies in the US.
