Giving is seasonal for the Easton Pool & Spa (www.eastonpool.com) family-owned business. In fact, looking for a new charitable cause didn’t go much further than a local backyard. Dave Hobaica, company president, met us during our pool installation. As we got to know each other better, he learned a lot more about what we do to help others in the cancer community.
After 10 years of sponsoring golf tournaments that ended in 2007, Dave decided to donate a portion of the fee from pool openings and closings. He was moved by the many families we help financially while they’re fighting cancer. Anyone (with or without a pool) can bring additional donations to their retail stores as well. Dave plans to bring a check to the New England Celebrities Tackle Cancer Gala in November along with a book inscribed with the names of all contributors.
Dave says, “No one can avoid a connection with cancer. So if we all work together and help even just one family live a brighter and happier life, it all will be worthwhile.”
We are so grateful to companies like Easton Pool and Spa for helping us with our goal of doubling the amount of financial assistance recipients in 2011. Think about ways your company can join our team of thoughtful benefactors.
