The Orange County Susan G. Komen Affiliate hosted their annual Grants Award Breakfast last week at the Westin South Coast Plaza in Costa Mesa. Mobile Edge is a proud corporate partner with Susan G. Komen for the Cure nationally, and close partner with the Orange County Affiliate.
I had the opportunity to see just how the individual grants are awarded to local breast health care facilities. Wonderful people and clinics helping under privileged families that may not have the money to pay for a mammogram screening, or even health care for individuals who have breast cancer and need treatment.
As a local and national sponsor, it was very rewarding for me to see the individual lives every dollar impacts locally and nationally. Mobile Edge helps raise money for Komen in several ways. Locally, Mobile Edge produces 2,000 cancer survivor bags for the OC Race for the Cure each year and also donates Komen Laptop Bags to individuals who raise more than $6,000 for the Foundation.
Nationally, Mobile Edge donates to Susan G. Komen for the Cure with a minimum contribution of $25,000 annually. However, most of the time Mobile Edge exceeds that amount based on sales. Mobile Edge donates 10% of the retail sales price of each Komen Caring Case they sell, back to the Foundation.
To date, Mobile Edge has contributed a combined amount more than $325,000 and counting. Visit the Mobile Edge Caring Case Collection and see how you can help raise money for such an amazing organization and cause.
