PartyLite brought its support of the American Cancer Society to the local level in June during the organization’s annual Relay for Life. A team of employees from the Massachusetts-based brand joined the event and brought in donations of $44,411, nearly one-third of the total raised by the Greater Plymouth Relay.
The candle seller has been a national partner of the American Cancer Society since 1997, and a supporter of the local Relay for Life for 14 years. The walking team, known as the PartyLite Hometown Walkers, has now raised more than $878,000 for the cause. Altogether, ParyLite has contributed more than $15 million to the American Cancer Society, an organization dedicated to preventing and eliminating cancer.
“This company is made up of people who are committed to keeping the flame of hope burning for as long as it takes to win the battle over cancer,” President of PartyLite Worldwide, Rob Goergen, said in a statement. “I’m truly proud of each and every one of our people here in Plymouth and across PartyLite who have a heart for helping those in need.”
