As a member of the 100 Club, I am very grateful for Har-Bro and their commitment to community service. Our community is better and our public safety members are stronger because of the support from companies like Har-Bro
Tempe, AZ (PRWEB) February 18, 2012
When it comes to prompt emergency and restoration services, Har-Bro can serve as heroes in a variety of ways for both businesses and consumers. Providing the local community with a different form of service, the Har-Bro team in Tempe supported the Holiday Heroes Radio-thon Golf Tournament during the holidays, which raised more than $262,000 for The 100 Club of Arizona. The 100 Club of Arizona offers financial assistance to families of public safety officers and firefighters seriously injured or killed in the line-of-duty as well as resources to enhance their safety and welfare.
The entire Tempe office worked various shifts from 5 a.m. to 6 p.m. to support the Holiday Heroes event, including set up, answering donation calls and sponsoring a team for the golf tournament. One of Har-Bro’s local vendors, Benson Systems, which specializes in alarm systems and fire safety equipment, also teamed with Har-Bro to provide financial support for the event.
“As a member of the 100 Club, I am very grateful for Har-Bro and their commitment to community service. Our community is better and our public safety members are stronger because of the support from companies like Har-Bro,” said Jack Ballentine, director and Fire Investigations administer for the Phoenix Fire Department.
The fifth annual event also included a raffle, silent auction, police and fire displays, and a banquet. In addition, Har-Bro supports the 100 Club of Arizona’s annual ball, which helps to provide scholarships for local kids in need.
“We were thrilled to support such an amazing day of fundraising and community, and we look forward to many more years of working with the 100 Club of Arizona,” said Mitch Kohn, branch manager for Har-Bro in Tempe. “We had a great time talking to donors and getting involved with so many holiday heroes.”
