(PRWEB) December 21, 2017
The Primex Family of Companies (PFOC) announced today that the Alzheimer’s Association has recognized them as 2017 ‘Friend of the Association’ by the Southeastern Wisconsin Chapter.
The Friend of the Association Award is presented to an individual or group that has made significant financial commitment to the Alzheimer’s Association mission – eliminating Alzheimer’s disease through the advancement of research; to provide and enhance care and support for all affected; and to reduce the risk of dementia through the promotion of brain health.
“Being recognized as the 2017 Friend of the Association is a humbling honor. We’ve all been touched by Alzheimer’s in some way and we believe giving back is part of living our company values,” said Jon Balicki, president and COO, Primex Family of Companies. “What began with an employee sponsorship for an Alzheimer’s walk in 2007 has resulted in over $218,000 raised during the last ten years.”
PFOC participates in Alzheimer’s Association fundraising through several employee giving programs, such as Casual for a Cause, and community outreach programs at the Walworth County Fair and the annual Alzheimer’s walk in Lake Geneva.
