AR&C Self Storage, a self-storage facility in Hamilton, N.J., helped raise more than $3,500 for the Susan G. Komen for the Cure breast-cancer foundation on Sept. 10 through its Pink Hope Big Event yard sale and family-fun day. The event was organized specifically to raise awareness and donations for the charity organization.
AR&C worked in conjunction with Team Pink Hope, a group of Hamilton women who have participated in the Susan G. Komen Philadelphia 3-Day for the Cure Walk for each of the past three years. This year’s 60-mile walk will take place Oct. 14-16.
“We are very pleased to have helped Team Pink Hope drive donations to this great cause. The response was overwhelming; truly the compassion of the human spirit is more powerful when we unite as a community,” said AR&C marketing manager Caleb Towne. “We hope to continue to drive donations and build awareness towards curing a disease that touches so many of those closest to us again next September.”
Contributors to the event included Nathan’s Hot Dogs, Pump It Up, Odd Act Theater Group and Community Christian Choir. The yard sale began at 6 a.m.
“All of us at Team Pink Hope would like to thank AR&C Self Storage and the local businesses for their support,” said team captain Michelle Maguire. ”We feel it is important to have the community involved, not only to raise awareness of this horrible disease, but for those who are fighting to know they are not alone.”
