The Cannata Report has announced it will host its 32nd Annual Awards & Charities Dinner on Nov. 2, 2017, at the Madison Hotel in Morristown, New Jersey. Proceeds will benefit the John Theurer Cancer Center at Hackensack University Medical Center. Official sponsors of the event include Clover Imaging Group, Hytec Dealer Services and PSIGEN Software Inc.

This is the third time The Cannata Report is partnering with Hackensack UMC for its annual charity dinner, having established endowments honoring industry colleagues at Hackensack UMC throughout the event's 32-year history. Overall, the Cannata Dinner has raised nearly $2 million for a wide range of charitable organizations nationwide. The proceeds from this year's Annual Awards & Charities Dinner will benefit the John Theurer Cancer Research Center by providing direct support to the specialists who are at the center of developing new therapies to address cancer.

"Our Annual Awards & Charities Dinner is always a highlight of the year for me, but this year I'm especially gratified as we celebrate 35 years as a media brand and approach with the hope of greatly exceeding the $2 million milestone," said Frank G. Cannata, president and CEO, The Cannata Report. "No celebration of our achievements is complete without saluting our business partners and subscribers, whose unwavering support helps make all of this possible."

The Cannata Dinner celebrates excellence in the office technology industry by recognizing leaders from the manufacturer, software and services, and financing segments with the presentation of the Frank Awards. The Cannata Report's Annual Dealer Survey, sponsored by EverBank Commercial Finance for the fourth consecutive year, determines the winners of the awards that will be presented in nine categories this year, including "Best Manufacturer: Production Print," added in 2017 to acknowledge this emerging area of growth for independent dealers. The Cannata Report's Annual Dealer Survey, an industry benchmark conducted across the independent dealer community for 32 years, provides trend data and in-depth analysis across the imaging channel. This year's survey is being conducted with support from Canon, Konica Minolta, Ricoh and Toshiba.

In addition to the Awards & Charities Dinner, two other related events are planned as part of the celebration. On Thursday evening immediately following the Awards & Charities Dinner, an official afterparty, sponsored by MWA Intelligence, will be held to complete the evening's festivities. The next day, Friday, Nov. 3, The Cannata Report will once again host a Women's Influencer Brunch, sponsored by AMETEK ESP, launching this as an annual event following its successful introduction in 2016. The brunch celebrates The Cannata Report's annual Women's Influencer issue and is expanding this year to include a variety of new elements. Additional details related to the afterparty and brunch will be announced on as plans are confirmed. All events will take place at the Madison Hotel.

"We are wildly enthusiastic about the expansion surrounding the Cannata Dinner," said CJ Cannata, executive vice president and publisher, The Cannata Report. "We are hopeful this year's event will surpass our previous events in all regards — attendance, excitement and donations. We are grateful to our official dinner sponsors for their tremendous contributions — Clover Imaging Group, Hytec Dealer Services and PSIGEN Software Inc. — as well as to the many companies throughout the industry whose unwavering support has helped make our fundraiser and awards so successful."

Sharp Electronics Corp., which assisted in the creation of a new multimedia format showcasing music, graphics and video that debuted at last year's event, will support the 2017 awards portion of the Cannata Dinner again this year as the event's A/V sponsor.
