ACE Parking launches PARK FOR PINK campaign for the second consecutive year.
San Diego, CA – For the second year in a row, ACE Parking launches its PARK FOR PINK campaign. This year, the campaign will reach coast to coast. The program, a company and community initiative to help support cancer research, is designed to raise awareness, generate funds and motivate the community to fight one of the great epidemics of our time: cancer.
Last year, the program successfully generated tens of thousands of dollars to the Susan G. Komen Foundation for breast cancer research and The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society to cure blood cancers. The program was limited to just locations within San Diego County. The 2015 campaign will now spread to the company’s 450 locations across the country. ACE Parking will again donate a generous portion of parking proceeds.
The program will work much like last year. During the month of October, each time a customer parks with ACE Parking, a portion of their parking fee will be used towards fighting cancer. To this end, ACE Parking will be temporarily changing many of its well-recognized parking lot signs to pink-colored PARK FOR PINK signage with a custom logo. Team members will be wearing bright pink buttons, as well as pink wristbands celebrating ACE Parking’s pledge. Additionally, the official ACE Parking website has been redesigned to support the cause.
Keith B. Jones, third generation Owner, Managing Principal and Partner of ACE Parking, says this public campaign began with a private struggle. PARK FOR PINK was actually inspired by Jones’ own family’s fight against cancer. In the first year of marriage to wife, Megan, she was diagnosed with High Grade B-Cell Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. Only in her early thirties, Megan began an aggressive chemotherapy regimen. Megan Jones fought it successfully and three years after diagnosis and treatment, she is in remission.
Jones says, “Now, having a few years to reflect on this transformational event, and having endured the trial together with my resilient and beautiful wife, we have tremendous compassion and empathy for those who continue to fight this battle. I am thrilled to have my family business ACE Parking be a platform for supporting those who are suffering from this disease, and assist those who will one day find a cure.”
