Autocrafters CARSTAR Collision rallied other local businesses to raise nearly $1,500 for a Lancaster, Pa., cancer patient during October Breast Cancer Awareness month through a unique event – jewelry bingo.
Autocrafters, the corporate sponsor, recently co-hosted a breast cancer awareness fundraiser in conjunction with several local businesses, including Select Jewelers.
“Giving back to someone in the community and bringing the community together to do it is a recipe for just making it happen,” said Dianna Yurko of Autocrafters. “Offering local businesses the opportunity to get involved brings merchants together, pooling their resources and sharing budgets. This is the new B2B relationship marketing platform. It’s ‘live local buy local’ gone to the new level, give local! Our friends at Select Jewelers in Feasterville, Overstock Outlet, Edible Arrangements, Bucks County Breast Friends Support Group, AOH Division 88 Officer Danny Boyle and residents of Feasterville came to help.”
On Oct. 28 , 2015, a fundraising event was held at Select Jewelers of Feasterville. The community stepped in to bring the evening into the spotlight. All jewelry bingo winners left with a jewelry prize. This ladies night fundraiser set out to raise $1,000 and was well on its way when a Dresher, Pa., landscaping business paid forward the gesture of donating. Andrea Cocci Emig, fundraiser recipient, was Facetimed in from her home 100 miles away. Emig is 39 years old in stage 4 cancer. She has battled several cancers and lost her 42-year-old sister to the same cancer last year. The event raised more than $1,200.
