Jacksonville, Florida (PRWEB) February 13, 2013
Ashley Furniture HomeStore has announced additional incentives to raise funds for the 26.2 with Donna (National Marathon To Finish Breast Cancer) and The Donna Foundation to further support ground-breaking breast cancer research and empower women living with breast cancer. The 2013 26.2 with Donna Marathon takes place this Sunday, February 17th, 2013 in Jacksonville, FL.
As part of their ongoing efforts to support the cause, Ashley Furniture HomeStore - Official Sponsor of the 2013 26.2 with Donna National Marathon to Finish Breast Cancer – is donating a portion of proceeds from all sales now thru this Monday (Presidents’ Day), February 18, 2013, to the 26.2 with Donna, as well as offering special savings in-store. In addition, the HomeStores will be donating an extra $100 from the purchase of each of its top-selling advanced memory foam mattress sets, which promote better health and quality of life. “We are excited to be able to give back even more to our community and look forward to thanking thousands of supporters this week in our hometown!” said Howard Fineman, Managing Member/CEO of the Jacksonville FL-based HomeStores.
In addition to the donations, the local HomeStores will assist in providing ten Spectator Shuttles for the Marathon this weekend in order to foster even more local participation and support. “It is our pleasure for the thousands of 26.2 with Donna supporters to be riding the Ashley Furniture HomeStore Spectator Shuttles to move easily to and from the marathon.” said Valerie Brown, Sponsorship Director of the 26.2 with Donna. “We have had the pleasure of working with Ashley Furniture HomeStore for the second year in a row to bring to the forefront the local support needed here in Jacksonville, Florida to further our Breast Cancer Research and assist women with daily financial responsibilities that they encounter while going through treatments.”
2013 marks the seventh 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, they have raised over $150,000 in donations to date for the fight against breast cancer. The local HomeStores invite the First Coast community to join them at the upcoming 26.2 with Donna events, including this Sunday’s Marathon, and to visit their three Jacksonville, FL HomeStores, including their flagship anchor showroom at St. Johns Town Center – only a few miles from the 26.2 with Donna Marathon finish line at Mayo Clinic.
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. The HomeStores have, also, launched a multi-year partnership with the Jacksonville Jaguars to provide additional free beds to local kids in need thru Ashley’s A Hope To Dream program. The HomeStores’ continued community efforts earned them special recognition in both 2012 and 2013 and they were the proud recipients of the national Chairman's Award this past year.
