Karmanos receives generous donation from ongoing benefactor NorthStar Mat Service of Wixom
Friday, May 10, 2013
NorthStar Mat Service of Wixom has continued its ongoing generosity to the Barbara Ann Karmanos Cancer Institute by holding their annual “holiday mat” promotion.
The 2012 promotion was the third consecutive year that NorthStar has hosted this fundraiser and employees raised $813 for breast cancer research at the Institute. This brings the overall amount to $2,868!
Beginning in late October, route representatives present a festive holiday mat and a gold or platinum sponsorship package to their customers to rent throughout the season. A percentage of sales from these rentals are then generously donated to Karmanos.
The owners of NorthStar Mat Service started this fundraiser because they wanted to help the community by supporting a cause that touches everyone. They chose Karmanos because a long-time employee received cancer treatments at the center.
Karmanos thanks NorthStar Mat Service employees for their generosity and looks forward to a continued partnership in 2013!
