CASH4GOLD SUPPORTS THE AMERICAN RED CROSS AS A PROUD SPONSOR OF ITS SALUTE TO THE ARMED FORCES GALA
Pompano Beach, Fla. – April 29, 2010 – Cash4Gold (www.Cash4Gold.com), the trusted industry leader in mail-in gold buying, will participate as a major sponsor of an upcoming Red Cross gala dinner honoring the men and women of the U.S. armed forces. The Salute to the Troops event, which also pays tribute to the Red Cross’ partnership with the military and recognizes the humanitarian of the year, is being held Friday, April 30 at the Hyatt Regency Pier 66 in Fort Lauderdale, Fla. Cash4Gold’s contribution as a “Thank a Veteran Sponsor” will provide seats at the event for six members of the military who otherwise would not have been able to attend.
Cash4Gold has a long-standing history of supporting the great work done by the American Red Cross. Following widespread wildfires in Southern California in 2009, Cash4Gold mobilized employees to make donations to assist with the Red Cross disaster relief efforts.
Cash4Gold also supported the Red Cross in its aid efforts following the devastating earthquake in Haiti in January 2010. The world’s leading consumer gold buyer enlisted celebrities to help the company donate to the American Red Cross and gathered hundreds of shoes, clothes and other supplies which were shipped directly to Haiti to help those affected by the disaster. In addition, the company matched dollar-for-dollar the money raised by its more than 300 employees, many of whom had family directly impacted by the quake.
The pioneer of the mail-in gold buying industry also has been a strong supporter of America’s armed forces. Cash4Gold sponsored a series of clinics last year in partnership with the U.S. Marine Corps that paired up soldiers being deployed to Iraq and Afghanistan with mixed martial artists who taught them close combat and ground fighting techniques. The events benefited the Xtreme Couture G.I. Foundation, a non-profit organization established to honor and raise money for American soldiers wounded in action.
Cash4Gold’s various charitable efforts are described on the recently launched website www.Cash4GoldCharity.com. Visitors to the site will see photos and images from many previous Cash4Gold philanthropic endeavors, most of which have been fueled by Cash4Gold celebrity spokesman and three-time Grammy Award winner MC Hammer.
In late 2009, Hammer was on-hand with Cash4Gold in South Florida where the company is based, visiting ill children at the Chris Evert Children’s Hospital to spread holiday cheer and handing out Christmas gifts to thousands of deserving children and their families. Previously, the rap icon joined Cash4Gold CEO Jeff Aronson in distributing food to families hard hit by the recession in the Stockton, CA area. After widespread flooding in Georgia and a series of natural disasters in the Philippines, American Samoa and Indonesia in October 2009, Hammer turned to his 1.8 million followers on Twitter to mobilize support for The Red Cross and international aid organization FeedTheChildren, which Hammer and Cash4Gold have also strongly supported through the years.
