Atlantic Biologicals Hosts “Casual for a Cause” Event to Raise Funds for Alzheimer’s Association
Miami, FL - (July 12, 2016) - Atlantic Biologicals, a premier national distributor of pharmaceuticals and unit dose products in the United States and Puerto Rico, hosted a “Casual for a Cause” event during the months of June and July to raise funds and awareness for the Alzheimer’s Association. This fundraising event allows employees to dress down in the workplace in exchange for a donation to the cause. To go casual, Atlantic employees were required to make a minimum contribution of $20 to the Alzheimer’s Association for each month they participated.
The company had originally planned to only host “Casual for a Cause” in June in recognition of the Association’s “Alzheimer’s & Brain Awareness Month (ABAM),” but due to employee participation being a great success, the event was extended through the end of July to further fundraising efforts. In total, from both months combined, Atlantic Biologicals raised $1,275 to help fight Alzheimer’s disease.
“It is wonderful to see the dedication and enthusiasm displayed by our employees for the Alzheimer’s Association’s cause,” said Allison Riley, Director of Sales. “It never seizes to amaze me the commitment our staff has in giving back to the community and doing their part to help others.”
