We would like to thank everyone for their hard work and support in our campaign to increase breast cancer awareness during the month of October. This was our first effort in such a huge cause and we could not have been so successful without everyone’s help.

First of all, we would like to thank all of our hourly team members, managers, supervisors and office staff for their dedication in this endeavor. It stretched everyone to maximize their imagination and organizational skills to complete their additional duties while running a very large business.

We would also like to thank Lynne Martin and Tammy Ramsey as breast cancer survivors for sharing their personal stories.

Special appreciation goes out to everyone at Native Sons in Myrtle Beach. Owner Steve Taylor, Richard Knott, Lorenzo Grant, Trish Green, Autumn Waugh and all their team members who came to work early, stayed late, worked weekends and did whatever it took to print thousands of shirts with little notice and us calling every few minutes asking are the shirts ready yet? They did an incredible job and our thanks and appreciation goes out to them.

In addition, we would like to thank Jessica Wolfe for her help as she took time to drive from Gastonia to Myrtle Beach to help Peggy and Mandy during the early stages of this process and continued working hard during the entire month. Jessica is a supporter in this cause by being actively involved in the Look Good Feel Better Program in Gastonia, North Carolina.

At this time, we are proud to announce we have raised more than $120,000! As a reminder, all the money will go directly back to that local community to support the American Cancer Society. We always strive to give back to our local charities in any event we support.

We want to thank the people below along with these companies for their generous donations and support.
