BALTIMORE, April 13, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- The Atlantic Remodeling Corporation has been named Presenting Sponsor of the 16th annual "March for the Animals" being held Sunday, April 17, at Druid Hill Park. The 1.5 mile walk-a-thon around Druid Hill Reservoir is the major charity event conducted by volunteers to raise funds for the Maryland SPCA.
This marks the second year that Atlantic Remodeling has served as the lead sponsor of "March for the Animals", which involves hundreds of animals lovers and their pets in a day of demonstrations, contests and entertainment. Last year's event raised $364,000 to benefit the work of the Maryland SPCA, which was founded in Baltimore in 1869 and is one of the nation's oldest animal welfare organizations.
Betram Lebhar, IV, Atlantic Remodeling's president and CEO, noted that last year his company also launched a golf tournament, banquet and auction -- the "Atlantic Remodeling Play-A-Round for Pets" -- at the Mountain Branch Golf Course in Joppa to raise funds for the SPCA.
"Atlantic Remodeling is committed to community service, and we are proud to be major benefactors of the Maryland SPCA, which does so much for the care and adoption of more than 3,000 homeless animals each year -- and does so without any government support," Lebhar said.
Lebhar also noted that Atlantic Remodeling sponsors a special SPCA program that provides for the adoption of an animal over seven years of age for free. For more information about Atlantic Remodeling and its support of SPCA, visit the company's website at www.atlanticremodeling.com. The SPCA website is www.mdspca.org.
The Atlantic Remodeling Corporation, now in its 11th year, specializes in the installation of energy-efficient windows, siding and roofing. Operating in the Baltimore/Washington area, the company has been cited as among the best 50 remodeling companies in the nation by Remodeling magazine.
