November 04, 2010 // Franchising.com // MORRIS PLAINS, N.J. – Employees at the Weichert corporate headquarters in Morris Plains recently completed their annual fundraiser to raise money for the Susan G. Komen Passionately Pink for the Cure™ event. All together, the Weichert Family of Companies employees raised nearly $6,000 in October to support the North Jersey affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure.
"We'd like to thank our employees for their generosity and commitment to Passionately Pink for the Cure™," said Denise Smith, senior vice president for Weichert. "We are committed to helping make a difference and assist in finding a cure for a disease that impacts the lives of many."
Up to 75 percent of the net income from each Komen domestic affiliate is dedicated to fighting breast cancer in that affiliate's community. Every year, Komen affiliates award grants to local hospitals and community organizations that provide breast health education and breast cancer screening and treatment programs for medically underserved women. Remaining net income, minimum of 25 percent, supports the Komen Research Grant Program, which funds groundbreaking breast cancer research and scientific programs around the world.
Passionately Pink for the Cure, a year-round fundraising and education program, encourages companies, schools and organizations to share in the promise of finding a cure by supporting breast cancer research, education, screening and treatment. Since 1982, Susan G. Komen for the Cure has been a global leader in the fight against breast cancer through its support of innovative research and community-based outreach programs.
