During October, the entire crew of Horch Roofing wore pink in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness month as part of their fundraising drive for the cause.

“At Horch Roofing we’re committed to giving back to our community, and cancer has touched many of our lives,” said owner Peter Horch. “This seemed like the perfect opportunity for us to do something.”

Each member of the Horch Roofing team was given a fundraising signup sheet and a pink sweatshirt to inspire them to participate in the contribution drive. Money was also raised through sales of the pink T-shirts and sweatshirts that the team wore.

The sweatshirts were provided by Horch Roofing and All Aboard Trolley, and produced at cost by J&B Printers of Rockland. All Aboard Trolley owner Jim Gamage also owns All-4-U staffing and has placed several employees at Horch.

“We’re committed to our work with Horch Roofing, and also to our community. This was an exciting opportunity to team up and raise money for an important cause,” Gamage said. “And we had a lot of fun doing it. We’re looking forward to raising more funds for the cause next year!”

Additional sponsors included Friends of Friends and Philbrook & Associates Bookkeeping.

The fundraising effort wrapped up with a finale party on Oct. 29 at the Waterworks Restaurant in Rockland. The event was a great success, raising $4,500 for breast cancer awareness. Thanks to those who donated!
