We're always looking for interesting ways for our employees to get involved in fundraising activities
Torrance, CA (PRWEB) October 14, 2008
Timeshare Relief employees participate in Lee National Denim Day®, one of the largest single-day fundraisers in the fight against breast cancer.
October 6th wasn't any ordinary Monday at Timeshare Relief. The denim worn on this day was not only worn for comfort, but it also made a powerful statement for an important cause.
As Lee National Denim Day moved into its thirteenth year, Timeshare Relief geared up to participate in this grassroots program which has raised more than $70 million for breast cancer research.
Participants at Timeshare Relief were encouraged to wear denim in exchange for a $5 donation to the Women's Cancer Programs of the Entertainment Industry Foundation (EIF). Funds raised support some of the most promising treatment and early detection research in the country, as well as the grassroots advocacy work of the National Breast Cancer Coalition.
Timeshare Relief also held a Bake Off to raise additional money. All proceeds of the Bake Off went towards Timeshare Relief's Group Fundraising Goal of $500, a sum which was then matched by Timeshare Relief.
"We're always looking for interesting ways for our employees to get involved in fundraising activities," said David MacMillan, President of Timeshare Relief. "Lee National Denim Day is easy and fun to do. Everyone gets to wear jeans to work in exchange for a $5 donation and the money helps fight breast cancer, a cause that is very important to many of our employees."
Timeshare Relief joined thousands of other organizations to raise money to be used to advance some of the most promising breast cancer research in the industry.
