As part of its commitment to give back to the communities it serves, A.G. Williams Painting Company raised and donated $2,660 to Support Connection, a Westchester County-based not-for-profit organization that offers free, confidential support services to people nationwide who are affected by ovarian and breast cancer.
A.G. Williams kicked off its Paint It Teal/Paint It Pink in September 2011, pledging to contribute a portion of the profits from every paint job through the end of the year to the Support Connection. The color teal is connected with ovarian cancer awareness and the color pink with breast cancer awareness. On Sunday, October 2, 2011, Paul Viggiano, Director of Business Administration and Marketing, along with George Williams, President and CEO, and members of the A.G. Williams Painting Company team raised more than $1,000 through their participation in the 17th Annual Support Connection Support-A-Walk at FDR State Park in Yorktown, New York. Company representatives also greeted hundreds of participants at its Paint It Pink display table and distributed pink water bottles that A.G. Williams donated to commemorate Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
This month, Mr. Viggiano proudly presented Katherine Quinn, Executive Director of Support Connection, with a check for $2,660, representing funds raised at Support-A-Walk and donated from A.G Williams profits. “We are deeply touched by the commitment of A.G. Williams to our organization,” said Quinn.
“Support Connection makes a difference in the lives of our neighbors in Westchester County and southern Fairfield County,” said Viggiano. “With our contribution, we help Support Connection in its mission to provide emotional, social and educational support services to women affected by breast or ovarian cancer, and their families and friends.”
