ARS Restoration Specialists Donates a total of $525,000 to
The Gloria Gemma Breast Cancer Resource Foundation & The Ellie Fund in 2016
ARS Restoration Specialists and friends raised $525,000 for the Gloria Gemma Breast Cancer Resource Foundation and the Ellie Fund. Thanks to the thousands of people that generously contributed in 2016! The Gloria Gemma Breast Cancer Resource Foundation’s mission is to raise breast cancer awareness, increase breast health education and generate funding for critical breast health programs that are in desperate need of being brought to fruition. ARS has been working with the Gloria Gemma Breast Cancer Resource Foundation for the past ten years and has donated over $3,000,000 since 2005. We would not have been able to accomplish this without the support of so many friends and family throughout the year. A great portion of the funds result from our Annual Casino Night which will be at Gillette Stadium on Saturday, March 25th, 2017- keep an eye out for the invitation. All family and friends are welcome to join!
ARS is also excited to announce that we were able to contribute $150,000 to the Ellie Fund this year. The Ellie Fund was founded by brothers Jeff and Eliot Popkin in 1995 to honor their mother’s courageous fight against breast cancer and the giving spirit she was known for throughout her life. A Newton, Massachusetts resident for more than thirty years, Ellie volunteered at the local library and visited children with terminal illnesses at Children’s Hospital, was a Den Mother for the local Boy Scouts of America, an active member of Hadassah, and a beloved pre-school teacher.
Steve Sorkin, ARS Restoration Specialists’ Chief Sales Officer, presented The Gloria Gemma Breast Cancer Resource Foundation with a check for $375,000, and the Ellie Fund with a check for $150,000 on December 16th 2016. On behalf of ARS, Steve thanked the foundations for all their hard work in the battle against this deadly disease.
ARS is excited to work with both the Gloria Gemma Foundation and the Ellie Fund. The synergy between the two charity groups is fantastic and we look forward to helping more families in 2017!
