Raymond Handling raises $17,328 with fourth annual Pink Pallet Jack AuctionMonday, November 6, 2017
Raymond Handling Concepts Corporation (RHCC), materials handling equipment supplier in Northern California and the Northwest, announced the winning bid on its fourth annual Pink Pallet Jack Project online auction was $6,150 by John Souza of J & K Trucking. Showing its continued support of Raymond Handling’s fundraising efforts, this year marks the fourth year Souza’s company has placed the winning bid. In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, all proceeds raised from this year’s auction were shared between the Tina Fund in Greene, New York and Northwest Hope and Healing.
“Overall, Raymond Handling Concepts Corporation raised $17,328 to benefit two commendable breast cancer charities this year,” said Steve Raymond, President. “We are thrilled to see our Pink Pallet Jack Project’s continued success in uniting our network and communities together in the support of finding a cure. Since 2014, we have raised more than $137,000 for charity, a large portion of this amount coming from the Pink Pallet Jack Project.”
With the second highest bid during the auction, RHCC sold an additional Pink Pallet Jack to Jere VanPuffelen with Prism Logistics. The fight to find a cure is personal for Raymond Handling Concepts as many of its employees have seen the lives of their loved ones shaken by cancer.
In addition to the auction, RHCC hosted its 30th Anniversary event at its Auburn, Washington facility on October 25, 2017. The open house style event featured Hors d’oeuvres, a live performance by Washington native Gina Belliveau and vendor sponsored raffles prizes including Polaris who donated a gear bag and EnerSys who raffled off a flat screen TV. The event rounded up 27 guests from local communities and several of Raymond Handling’s vendor partners including EnerSys, All Battery, Polaris GEM, Cascade, Quantum, WWMH, WoW Baking and All Battery.
