Rally for Emery’s was a huge success!
A huge thank you to those who came out and supported the Rally last weekend for Mike Emery and his family! Go to our facebook page to see all the latest pics from a fun celebration.
There was a huge turnout, many of the surrounding businesses and families came out to support a great cause. Many participated in the 5K run. Items and services were donated for a silent auction. With activities for the entire family, including a mechanical bull, bouncy houses, a rock climbing wall and carnival games, the feeling was inspirational and lively.
The family was able to reach their goal of raising $25,000 from the event, which will help pay for medical bills and living expenses that have come as a result of Mike’s illness. Many people donated during the silent auction, with product purchases, and from the 5K run! Advanced Window Products donated money and co-sponsored the event, and individual employees and family members of AWP also got involved and donated to the cause. There were also many generous cash donations on site. If you would like to make a donation, you can visit their website at http://www.gofundme.com/3nzm5g.
Corey Marsh, our Sales Manager, said about the event, “The feeling there was amazing. So many families came out in full force to raise awareness and bring momentum to the cause. Bingham High’s football team even generously donated all of the money the raised in their clothing drive. It was a sight to behold, seeing so many people in the community come together; many that didn’t even know the family personally. There was even an awesome older lady, who was recently widowed that donated. She said it was her husband’s birthday and she wanted to do a nice gift for him. She donated a $1,000 check. It was overwhelming to see the good come out of all of these strangers, family and friends. We loved being a part of it!”
