This is a way for us to give back to the community as well as help the winner.
Seattle, WA (PRWEB) April 09, 2015
Retail Management Solutions (RMS), a provider of pharmacy point-of-sale software, hardware, and training solutions, recently awarded a $2,000 cash prize to Lykins Pharmacy during a giveaway at the 2015 Independent Pharmacy Business Growth Conference.
Mike Gross, Vice President of Sales and Marketing, says every vendor that attended the trade show was able to hold a raffle giveaway during the event, which took place from February 18 through 21 at the Renaissance Orlando Hotel in Orlando, FL.
RMS, one of the event's Gold Sponsors, was looking for a way to award a show attendee via a raffle drawing, but also wanted to give back to the local community, as local community pharmacies are RMS' core market. Giving away a cash prize with the sole purpose that the winner had to choose a local school to donate to accomplish this goal.
Lykins Pharmacy, a Zephyrhills, FL-based independent pharmacy, chose to donate its winning cash prize to West Zephyrhills Elementary School. Gary Lykins, the store's owner, says he chose to donate his store's prize to this school as a way to support high-quality childhood education in his area.
"I have known families that have had children who attended West Zephyrhills Elementary School," Lykins explains. "They have praised the school and expressed appreciation for the quality of the teaching and education their children have received. I want to support the continued excellence of teaching at West Zephyrhills Elementary School."
Lykins donated the check the first week of April. Lykins said, "They were extremely appreciative of this generous gift. They are a Title 1 public school, so funds for education are extremely tight. Many of the children are at or below the poverty line, so these funds will go a long way to help enhance the children's education."
"This is a way for us to give back to the community as well as help the winner, Lykins Pharmacy, give back to their choice of school in their own local community," Gross says. "It’s a win-win for all involved."
