Sanford, ME (PRWEB) March 20, 2011
PATCO Construction, Inc. of Sanford, Maine, will serve as Executive Producer on an unprecedented CD featuring Maine's most talented female singer songwriters. Veteran performers, Grammy nominees, and rising stars unite to make life a little easier for Maine women (and men) battling breast cancer.
PATCO Construction, Inc of Sanford, Maine is a company on a mission. Family owned for over 26 years, and a leader in the States residential and commercial building industry, PATCO understands that they have a responsibility to give back to the community. Because so many families – including those of PATCO employees – are touched by breast cancer, they chose to help provide financial support to The Maine Breast Cancer Coalition Support Service Fund (MBCC).
Mark and Greg Patterson, co-owners of PATCO, like the fact that the Fund provides assistance directly to Maine residents. “It helps cover the costs of items not taken care of by insurance companies”, said Mark. “It’s also used to help defray costs for individuals who may be under insured.” According to MBCC President Pam Sirois, the fund has covered mammograms and ultrasound, hospital bills, physician bills, bras and prostheses, wigs, prescriptions, lymphedema therapy and compression garments, genetic testing, transportation costs, as well as temporary living expenses for people in active breast cancer treatment.
In 2008 PATCO launched the first in a series of campaigns on behalf of the MBCC. "The Pink Key Project" pledged a donation for every contract, residential or commercial, signed that year. This campaign was just the beginning of PATCO’s passionate commitment to the cause. To date PATCO has contributed nearly $20,000 to the Support Service Fund.
This year, PATCO is serving as Executive Producer on "The Pink Album," scheduled for release October 1 to coincide with National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. An unprecedented two CD collection, the project will bring together, for the very first time, over two dozen of Maine’s most talented female performers. Among those participating are artists such as Cindy Bullens, Kate Schrock, Anne Clark, Sara Cox, and Women In Harmony. These veteran performers, rising stars, and Grammy nominees – some of whom have shared the stage with such legends as Elton John and Johnny Cash - will be contributing tracks they’ve selected specifically for this musical tribute. The album's producer, Con Fullam, has a long history in the music business and is perhaps best known locally as the composer of "The Maine Christmas Song" and the driving force behind "The Amazing Music of Mainers," a fundraiser to help end hunger in Maine.
The official kick-off for "The Pink Album" will be held on Wednesday, March 23 at SPACE Gallery, 538 Congress Street, Portland, Maine from 12:30 to 2:00 PM. Members of the public are welcome. During this event proceeds from the 2010 PATCO and New England Building Materials "Kitchens That Care" promotion, will be presented to representatives of The Maine Breast Cancer Coalition by Mark Patterson of PATCO and Joy Martel of NEMB.
