Mosquito Squad Raises More Than $50,000 To Support Malaria No More

RICHMOND, Va. - Nov. 12, 2013 /PRNewswire - Mosquito Squad leaders and franchisees attended the Malaria No More International Honors 2013 event held last night in New York City at Jazz at Lincoln Center's Frederick P. Rose Hall celebrating their support of Malaria No More. Mosquito Squad, a longtime supporter of the organization, raised more than $50,000 this year alone, in the fight against malaria.

Mosquito Squad attendees included Chris Grandpre and Scott Zide, chairman & CEO and president & COO, respectively of Outdoor Living Brands, the parent company of Mosquito Squad; Tom Olson, owner, Mosquito Squad of Twin Cities; and Patrick McKennon, owner, Mosquito Squad of Nashville.

"We are proud to support Malaria No More," said Grandpre. "It is senseless that even one more person dies because of this disease. We hope our ongoing efforts are helping win this fight to make the world a better place."

Mosquito Squad supports Malaria No More through a variety of fundraising activities and continually works promoting awareness through educational outreach to community groups. Though malaria was eradicated in the U.S. 50 years ago, it continues to take a child's life every minute. More than 660,000 people die yearly from malaria, with most deaths occurring in children. However, malaria is preventable and treatable – and with life-saving programs and simple tools, we can end deaths from this disease in our lifetime. To help in the fight, donate to www.SwatMalaria.net.

"We can't think of a better organization that fits with our corporate values of making our world a better, safer place to live, not only in backyards across America but also in the villages of Africa," said Zide.
