MILLERSVILLE, Md., Jan. 22 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Travel Advantage Network, one of the nation's fastest-growing travel programs, has focused its fund-raising efforts on Susan G. Komen for the Cure, the global leader of the breast cancer movement. Through a raffle, breast cancer pin sales and a Jeans Day, where employees purchase the opportunity to wear jeans to work for one day, TAN employees raised $729 for Susan G. Komen for the Cure, the world's largest grassroots network of breast cancer survivors and activists.
"Each month we ask TAN employees to give and each month they come through for us," says TAN President Brad Callahan. "We have a unique group of employees here at TAN. Always willing to support a worthy charity with donations of time and money."
This month, TAN employees Kristina Davis and Venus Dorrycott led the fund-raising efforts for Komen for the Cure. "My grandma had breast cancer," says Davis. "Her sister and her mother, too. It runs in my family."
Every October, TAN chooses to support a breast cancer charity, raising about $1,000 each year. In fact, TAN raises about $1,000 each month for causes like juvenile alopecia areata, Fidos for Freedom and congenital heart defects. To date, TAN employees have raised about $12,000 in 2008.
