Dressing in Denim For A Great Cause

Friday, December 4th, 2009

Abt has a special fundraiser today and the following two Fridays. All Abt employees may wear jeans to work for a five dollar donation per Friday. The money goes to an excellent cause. We are raising money to assist those who can’t provide for their families this holiday season.

According to Abt employee Shirley H., “We have Less than four weeks to raise the money to help families who can not provide for their families this holiday season. We will be delivering clothes, toys, and a complete holiday dinner including desserts Prepared by Jolane’s to their homes.”

Shirley went on to say, “We will also try to host [a] bake sale and [we] are currently working on a raffle.” We are hoping to provide for at least 10 families this holiday season.

Abt and the Pink Heals Tour–One Night Only

Thursday, September 24th, 2009

Life Source, the Glenview Fire Department, and Abt are teaming up to beat cancer by bringing the Pink Heals Tour to our Parking lot today between 6 and 10 p.m. This cross country tour has been raising money and taking blood donations to support women and all patients with cancer.

All registered donors for the event will be entered in a raffle and receive a commemorative T-shirt in honor of the event. Steve Shapiro, K.C. Carr, and Cari Boyk will be representing Abt at the event and handing out pink ribbon stress balls.

As Steve and I were discussing the Life Source-Abt partnership, he said that we were proud to team up with the largest blood center in Illinois. We have had a long standing relationship with them doing other promotions in the past. Tonight before the tour leaves, Life Source will present Jon Abt with a plaque to thank Abt for its partnership with the Pink Heals Tour.

After donating blood for a worthy cause, visit the Abt Design Center. To support the Pink Heals Tour, all of the stores will have special promotions such as Jolane’s two-for-one dinner options.
