Vermont Pool, Hot Tub and Spa Dealer Contributes to Fight Breast Cancer
Oct 05, 2015 /prREACH/ -- Vermont’s oldest and largest pool and spa dealer, Allen Pools and Spas, is making a splash this October to support breast cancer awareness month. From pink hot tub displays, to thousands of dollars in donations, to company-wide groups participating in local American Cancer Society walks, Allen Pools and Spas has a special connection to this cause.
Owner and CEO Ed Allen, lost his sister to breast cancer and since then Allen’s employees have rallied around the cause both in-store and in the community. “The company really appreciates the support and the effort everyone puts in this time of year. It’s truly a great cause that means a lot to the entire team”, explains Allen.
During the month of October, all three stores in Rutland, White River Junction, and Williston will be decked out in pink, featuring the infamous pink hot tub. Throughout the month Allen Pools and Spas will be collecting donations in addition to offering special deals to those who donate. They will also give large sums of money to the American Cancer Society by donating $100 dollars to breast cancer research for every hot tub sold in October.
General Manager, Kim Ghigliotty, feels that it is the best time of the year for Allen’s. “Last year the company donated $3,000 through spa sales and they're hoping to hit $7,000 this year through all of their fundraising efforts. There is always a great atmosphere in the stores during October because they know they’re working to help others. The company is also very excited to announce they we will be raffling off one of their pink hot tubs to a lucky donor.” Additionally, Hot Springs Spas (Team Watkins) will be donating a portion of all pink hot tub sales in the month of October to the National Breast Cancer Foundation.
Allen Pools and Spas will be participating in the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer of Chittenden County Walk on October 18th, 2015. They encourage customers and community members to join their team, The Pink Hot Tubbers, on this meaningful day.
Since 1957, Allen Pools and Spas has been proudly serving Vermont, western New Hampshire, and northeastern New York with year round customer support and providing the ultimate customer experience.
