Car Dealership Decorated in Pink for Rally Set for Monday October 20

OCTOBER 17, 2014, St. Louis, Missouri…Firefighters and Paramedics in the Monarch Fire Protection District are taking their “Pink Heals” Breast Cancer Awareness campaign to Weber Chevrolet in suburban Creve Coeur to thank the dealership and its employees for supporting the campaign that helps raise money during Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

For the second year, Weber Chevrolet has purchased “Pink Heals” breast cancer awareness T-shirts and made a generous donation to support Monarch Firefighters’ efforts during Breast Cancer Awareness Month. This year Monarch Firefighters efforts will benefit the non-profit “No Woman Left Behind” group that helps uninsured and under-insured women who need mastectomy or prosthetic products.

Weber Chevrolet’s main building at Olive Street and Interstate 270 is now totally decorated in pink. On Monday October 20 a pink fire truck will be displayed there to support Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Weber Chevrolet invites the public to join its employees for a rally when the truck arrives at 10:30 am.

Monarch Firefighter Mike Underwood says, “Weber Chevrolet has been a big supporter of our Pink Heals campaign even though the dealership is not located in the Monarch Fire Protection District. Weber employees and sales staff have purchased many of the Pink T-shirts that we sell to raise money for the Pink Heals campaign and we are very grateful for the support.”

October 2014 is the sixth year that Monarch firefighters, paramedics, officers and staff have sold “Pink Heals”  T-shirts to raise charitable funds for women battling cancer. Throughout the month-long campaign, Monarch fire trucks display pink cancer awareness flags.

Monarch Firefighters have directly raised more than $17,000 in recent years, donating to charities including Bridging the Gap Emergency Breast Cancer Fund; Camp Rainbow; the Life and Hope Fund at St. Luke’s Hospital in Chesterfield; and No Woman Left Behind. Their recent fund drive for the Muscular Dystrophy Association raised more than $11,000, and the team’s participation in the 9/11 Memorial Stair Climb helped raise nearly $55,000 for charity.

To order a “Pink Heals T-shirt,” shirt, visit Weber Chevrolet on Monday October 21 at 10:30 a.m. or email the Monarch Firefighters at MFCOSHIRTS@YAHOO.COM with size and quantity.
