Plantation, FL (PRWEB) November 06, 2012
In support of October’s Breast Cancer Awareness Month Uniform Advantage made it their goal to help raise funds for the American Cancer Society. This is the fourth consecutive year that Uniform Advantage has gathered a team of employees and their friends to raise money for and participate in the local Making Strides walk in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. It is a unifying experience for the entire company in support of the highly esteemed American Cancer Society.
This year, however, in addition to the walk the company also hosted several other fundraisers including a corporate pizza party, wear pink day, and dessert bar day to increase our team donation. Uniform Advantage agreed to match the donations raised from employees and their friends and family which was $1,867.75 making the matched donation $3,735.50.
The company also agreed to launch a Facebook campaign to get customers involved in the fundraising efforts. For every new UA Scrubs Facebook page “Like” in October, Uniform Advantage agreed to donate an additional $1 to Making Strides Against Breast Cancer. This way, our Facebook fans could easily support the organization as well, just by sharing with their other Facebook friends. In the start of October, the UA Scrubs Facebook page started with 15,926 “Likes” and ended with 17,435, making an additional $1,509 donation going toward the Making Strides Campaign.
