Jacksonville, FL (PRWEB) October 10, 2012
October is National Breast Cancer Awareness (BCA) Month! And, this month, the Jacksonville, FL HomeStores proudly announce their newest partnership with The Donna Foundation to further support ground-breaking breast cancer research and empower women living with breast cancer.
As part of the HomeStores’ ongoing efforts to support the cause, Ashley Furniture HomeStore has been named an Official Sponsor of the 2013 26.2 With Donna National Marathon to Finish Breast Cancer, and will assist in, among other things, providing ten Spectator Shuttles for the 2013 Marathon in order to, hopefully, foster even more local participation and support. In addition, the Jacksonville, FL HomeStores will be holding a series of events this month and into 2013 (both for their preferred customers and the general public) to promote further awareness for the cause. “This is the second year that we have been fortunate enough to work with Donna’s team to support the fight, and are proud to be able, together, to make an even bigger difference here in our hometown!” said Howard Fineman, Managing Member/CEO of the Jacksonville, FL- based HomeStores.
2012 marks the sixth consecutive year that the Jacksonville, FL Ashley Furniture HomeStores have sponsored events in conjunction with the fight against breast cancer through involvement with several charitable organizations. The local HomeStores invite the First Coast community to join them at the upcoming Victory In Pink Event (a celebration for women who have fought breast cancer) at the St. Johns Town Center on Saturday, October 20th, 2012, as well as in-store for special offers later this month for BCA supporters.
Since opening their first local HomeStore in 2005, the Jacksonville, FL Ashley Furniture HomeStores’ community support programs have continued to expand as they now work directly with a number of Jacksonville-based organizations/causes including The Donna Foundation, The Salvation Army, and The Greater Jacksonville Area USO, among others. Ashley, also, recently launched their partnership with the Jacksonville Jaguars to provide free beds to local kids in need thru Ashley’s A Hope To Dream program. Ashley’s continued community efforts recently earned them top honors at the January 2012 Las Vegas Market as proud recipients of the national 2011 Chairman's Award!
