One of the pluses of being part of a community is to be able to give back and support the organizations that lift the community in time of need. Precision Plus proudly supports the following events and the organizations behind them.
June 13, 2015 – “The Lombardi Walk to Tackle Cancer,” is a fundraising event organized by the Vince Lombardi Cancer Foundation, which has raised over $18 million to help fight cancer. “The organization’s sole purpose is to raise funds for leading-edge cancer research and compassionate care at the Vince Lombardi Cancer Clinics at Aurora Health Care. The Vince Lombardi Cancer Clinics are located through eastern Wisconsin.”
The walk took place simultaneously in several cities in Wisconsin, including Williams Bay in Walworth County, at Edgewater Park. All teams and walkers were eligible to receive matching funds from the foundation. Precision Plus supported the walk with a medical milestone sponsorship.
June 13, 2015 – “The Movers & Shakers Classic,” is a golf outing organized by the Wisconsin Parkinson Association (WPA). Since its inception in 1984, this charity organization “has provided information and resources about Parkinson disease to enhance public education and awareness of the disorder and to support people with Parkinson’s and their families.” There are nearly 100 WPA support and exercise groups throughout Wisconsin and neighboring states. It is estimated that in Wisconsin, there are more than 20,000 people living with the Parkinson disease.
Proceeds from the Movers & Shakers Classic are used to promote awareness, education and research for the disease. Precision Plus sponsored a hole at the event.
July 18, 2015 – “Goombay Bash,” is a lively Caribbean-themed annual fundraising event organized by the H Foundation. Over the last 15 years, the event has raised over $6 million dollars in seed money benefiting basic science cancer research, which accelerates discoveries that can lead to cures. The money raised has resulted in over $35 million in additional research funding.
Precision Plus has long supported this event taking place at Chicago’s Navy Pier, and has extended a Big Kahuna sponsorship for the 2015 event.
July 31, 2015 –“ McGMO Charity Golf Event” at Delbrook Golf Course in Delavan, Wisconsin, was established in 1997 by Tim McGregor, Mike Grover, John Monroe, and Kim O’Keefe. Friends since high school in Delavan, each of them had been touched directly by cancer. But they did more than turn to each other for support and decided to raise money to help others fighting cancer by organizing a golf outing that would directly benefit a local hospital.
Proceeds of the event will help fund a new comprehensive Aurora Health Care Cancer Center serving western Racine and Walworth counties featuring a state-of-the-art Vince Lombardi Cancer Clinic. The first year, $9,000 was raised toward the purchase of blanket warmers. Donations have grown each year and now total more than $700,000 to date.
Precision Plus supports this event with a Double Eagle sponsorship.
