ABM Industries Hosts First Annual Charity Golf Outing to Benefit Children with Cancer.
Sold-out Event Raises Funds for the Pediatric Cancer Research Foundation
NEW YORK -- ABM Industries Incorporated (NYSE: ABM) recently hosted its first annual charity golf fundraiser to help in the fight against cancer among children. All of the funds raised by the ABM Industries First Annual Charity Golf Outing will go to the Pediatric Cancer Research Foundation (PCRF), a non-profit organization that focuses on improving the care, quality of life and survival rate of children with malignant diseases. ABM, through its subsidiaries, is the United States' leading facility services contractor.
The event was held August 3 at the Dove Canyon Country Club in Dove Canyon, CA, and raised more than $20,000 for the Foundation. The event was sold out, with 144 golfers and 20 corporate hole-sponsors participating.
"We were very pleased to be able to host an event that was not only fun for the participants, but contributed to a great and important cause in our community," said Mike Latham, president of ABM Engineering Services.
Latham added: "We were attracted to the idea of sponsoring a charity in Orange County that focused on benefiting children, and the Pediatric Cancer Research Foundation turned out to be a perfect fit. On behalf of ABM, I would like to thank all of the corporations and individuals who participated, for helping to make a difference in the fight against children's cancers. This will be an annual event, and we look forward to next year's charity outing."
"We are happy to welcome ABM to our array of corporate sponsors who are helping in the fight against pediatric cancers. On behalf of the Foundation and the many children we support, I would like to thank everyone who participated in this year's ABM Annual Charity Golf Outing," said Nancy Franks, executive director, Pediatric Cancer Research Foundation.
