Raymond Handling holds Pink Pallet Jack online auctionThursday, September 15, 2016
Raymond Handling Concepts Corporation (RHCC), a materials handling equipment supplier in Northern California and the Northwest, will be holding its third annual “Pink Pallet Jack Project” online auction in support of Breast Cancer Awareness Month from October 17 to 27 on eBay. All proceeds raised from the auction will be donated to the Tina Fund in Greene, New York and the HERS Breast Cancer Foundation in Fremont, California.
The eleven-day auction will begin on Monday, October 17 at 6 a.m. PT on eBay, where participants can bid on Raymond’s pink 8210 Electric Pallet Truck. This particular model is ideal for retail store, wholesale delivery and food processing applications that require navigation in tight and/or congested areas. It also features Raymond’s exclusive Click2Creep design, which overrides the upper brake position and automatically slows the travel speed, enabling improved maneuverability and more controlled operation.
“Charitable giving is at the core of Raymond Handling Concepts Corporation, as we are devoted to making positive impacts on our local communities,” comments Steve Raymond, President. “Due to overwhelming support by our employees, customers, partners and our local communities, Raymond Handling Concepts Corporation has raised more than $109,000 for charity since 2014, a large portion of this amount coming from the Pink Pallet Jack Project.”
Just last month, RHCC began its fundraising efforts early with its first “Beat Breast Cancer” rummage sale held at its offices in Auburn, Washington, where additional funds were raised for the Tina Fund and HERS Breast Cancer Foundation.
The Pink Pallet Jack Project was initiated in 2014 by Steve Raymond and Simon Walker when the duo were invited by local Greene, New York resident Shelly Howell to participate in a charity event benefiting the Tina Fund, a fund that Howell created in honor of her sister Tina Turner, who lost her courageous battle with breast cancer in 2011.
In addition to the auction, the company is opening its Fremont, California facility located at 41400 Boyce Road to the public for an open house on October 20, 2016 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. There will be live music and a raffle for various prizes including a manual pallet jack. The company’s partners, customers and neighbors are invited to attend, meet Steve Raymond and see the pink pallet jack.
