Phoenix, AZ –- OmniMount proudly concluded the company’s month-long “OmniMount Goes Pink” initiative. Team OmniMount welcomed more than 50 team members, including three breast cancer survivors, to the American Cancer Society’s Making Strides Against Breast Cancer event in Tempe, Arizona, and donated a total of $13,546 to the charity.
“We all have the power to make a difference. That’s why OmniMount put a team together to join in the fight against breast cancer,” stated Annette Carrier, OmniMount’s director of brand marketing. “OmniMount’s corporate and employee response supporting this charitable cause was truly moving -- and it’s made us all extremely proud to be a part of this organization and this fundraising effort.”
On Saturday, November 8th, OmniMount’s team of participating employees, friends and family gathered at Tempe Town Lake to join forces with thousands of others to support the “Going Pink” cause.
