Stellar Employees raise $5,500 for Cancer Nonprofit In the Pink
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (December 1, 2014) — Employees of Stellar, a fully integrated firm focused on design, engineering, construction and mechanical services worldwide, have raised $5,500 for In the Pink, a boutique for women living with cancer.
Each Friday in October, employees could wear jeans to Stellar’s offices in exchange for a $30 donation to In the Pink. In November, Stellar hosted a cake decorating contest and auction that also benefited the organization.
In the Pink is a 501c3 nonprofit boutique and salon dedicated to helping women heal, cope and survive the effects of cancer — physically and emotionally. The organization provides an extensive selection of apparel, products, services and resources to cancer patients free of charge, such as scarves, post-surgical garments, wigs, yoga and more.
Founder and two-time cancer survivor Jeri Millard opened the first In the Pink in Jacksonville Beach in 2009. The organization has since expanded to two additional locations in San Marco and Sarasota, Florida.
“We are so grateful for Stellar’s generous donation,” said Jeri Millard, Founder, In the Pink. “We feel extremely fortunate to have this kind of support here in the Jacksonville community. Thanks to our generous donors’ efforts, we can continue providing free services and products to cancer patients.”
