MINNEAPOLIS, MN – (November 25, 2014) – ABRA Auto Body & Glass, a leading national damaged vehicle repair company, announced today it helped raise $10,000 during the Pine Island Country Club Golf Tournament to benefit The Sandbox.
The Sandbox serves families whose children have cancer or a life-altering illness. Their goal is to help families during the most challenging times so they can focus on what’s most important – the believing in and healing of their child.
Over 100 golfers and guests gathered at the Pine Island Country Club in Charlotte, North Carolina to show their support and encouragement on October 22, 2014.
“Our gratitude to ABRA Auto Body & Glass, participating golfers, and the Charlotte community is truly overwhelming,” said Mara Campolungo, executive director of The Sandbox. “The donation from the ABRA Auto Body & Glass Golf tournament will exponentially help our organization provide basic, day-to-day needs to families facing cancer or a life-altering illness of their child well into 2015. It also allows us to sponsor the Holiday Wish Lists of additional families to ensure they’re able to receive gifts and warm winter clothing.”
ABRA’s Market Vice President, Erin Cambero said, “We are honored to support The Sandbox with their mission of restoring hope to families of children with cancer and
life-altering illness. We are delighted to contribute to a cause that helps families emotionally and financially during the most difficult time of their lives.”
