In October 2016, two Service Experts centers will be turning heads with pink vans. Fras-Air/General Service Experts and Service Experts Heating and Air Conditioning of Raleigh are both painting two of their service vans pink for the fight to end breast cancer.
During the month of October, Fras-Air/General Service Experts will be giving 20% of all sales from their pink vans to their local Susan G. Komen chapter to help raise money to help cure breast cancer. Service Experts of Raleigh will be giving 5% of all sales from their pink vans and also donate $10 for every heating tune-up to their local chapter, Susan G. Komen North Carolina Triangle to the Coast.
This is the second October Fras-Air/General Service Experts has painted two of their vans pink to raise money for Susan G. Komen. In 2015, Fras-Air was able to raise over $7,000 for Komen North Jersey. David Schneider, General Manager of Fras-Air, and one of his technicians both lost their mothers to alternative forms of cancer and were moved to help other families.
“The National Cancer Institute says that 107,184 women in New Jersey faced breast cancer in 2016,” Schneider explained. “While the number of cases is actually going down each year, that still leaves a significant number of families who are struggling with this disease, and there is still an urgent need for research and support.”
Service Experts of Raleigh’s General Manager, Chris Overton, reiterated Schneider’s sentiments. “As stated by the North Carolina State Center for Health Statistics, breast cancer is the most prominent type of cancer in North Carolina – for men and women.”
