Member News: Ace Parking Launches PARK FOR PINK Campaign for the Fourth Consecutive Year
San Diego, CA – Ace Parking’s PARK FOR PINK campaign kicks off its fourth consecutive year of raising awareness and generating funds to aid in the fight against cancer.
During the month of October, Ace Parking will raise donations as well as donate a portion of the company’s proceeds to reach their goal of a $15,000 gift to Susan G. Komen® San Diego.
To help raise awareness, Ace Parking will once again be temporarily changing many of its well-recognized parking lot signs to pink-colored PARK FOR PINK signage with a custom logo. Team members will wear pink wristbands celebrating Ace Parking’s pledge. Additionally, the official Ace Parking website will have a custom design to support the cause.
For the last three years, the PARK FOR PINK program has generated over $250,000, which has been donated directly to organizations such as the Susan G. Komen® Foundation for breast cancer research, the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society to cure blood cancers, the American Cancer Society to help patients and their families, directly to oncology departments within hospitals, to the purchase of the da Vinci Xi robotic surgical system, and to other worthy organizations in their quest to find a cure and treat those who are challenged with the disease.
“PARK FOR PINK was inspired by my own family’s fight against cancer, as well as the struggle of many others in our Ace Parking family,” said Keith B. Jones, third generation Owner & Managing Partner of Ace Parking. “Because so many are directly or indirectly impacted by cancer, I am privileged to utilize Ace Parking as a platform to support those who are suffering, those who treat and support cancer patients, and those who are working to find the cures.”
