Ace Parking’s “Park for Pink” to raise awareness and funds for cancer
September is National Ovarian Cancer Month and October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. During these two months, Ace is turning pink for breast cancer awareness as in previous years, and also teal, to represent the addition of ovarian cancer awareness to this year’s campaign.
To help raise awareness, Ace Parking teams across the country will participate in Ovarian Cancer Awareness events throughout September. In October, Ace will once again temporarily change many of its well-recognized parking lot signs to pink-colored PARK FOR PINK signage with a custom logo. Team members will wear pink wristbands with teal lettering to celebrate Ace Parking’s pledge. Additionally, the official Ace Parking website will have a custom design to support the cause.
During the months of September and October, each time a customer parks with Ace Parking, a portion of parking proceeds will be donated to the fight against ovarian cancer.
“PARK FOR PINK was inspired by my own family’s fight against cancer, as well as the struggle of many others in our Ace Parking family,” said Keith B. Jones, third generation Owner & Managing Partner of Ace Parking. “Because so many are directly or indirectly impacted by cancer, I am privileged to utilize Ace Parking as a platform to support those who are suffering, those who treat and support cancer patients, and those who are working to find the cures.”
For the last four years, the PARK FOR PINK program has generated over $250,000, which has been donated directly to organizations such as the Susan G. Komen® Foundation for breast cancer research, the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society to cure blood cancers, the American Cancer Society to help patients and their families, directly to oncology departments within hospitals, to the purchase of the da Vinci Xi robotic surgical system, and to other worthy organizations in their quest to find a cure and treat those who are challenged with the disease.
Ace Parking received the International Parking Institute’s prestigious Parking Matters Award in recognition of the positive impact Ace is making in the global fight against cancer through the annual Park for Pink campaign.
