RALEIGH, N.C. -- Beasley Enterprises, whose subsidiaries include Eastern Fuels and Red Apple Markets convenience stores, partnered with the Carolinas' Chapter for The Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) Association to generate valuable financial support and awareness for the non-profit organization.
The Jim “Catfish” Hunter Chapter, which serves the Carolina region, received more than $15,000 in donations from fundraisers held by Beasley Enterprises. Eastern Fuels led several events in North Carolina, while the 42-store Red Apple Markets group raised funds all over northeast North Carolina to raise awareness and funding that will be used to aid research efforts, medical equipment, patient support and other Chapter needs.
Both companies also coordinated a yearlong Paper Baseball Campaign to “Strike Out ALS,” which was well received by both employees and customers.
“We are very fortunate to have the support of Beasley Enterprises' dedicated employees and loyal customers,” said Jerry Dawson, executive director of the Hunter Chapter. “Our Chapter and its patients are so pleased with the outcome of this partnership. Not only was it educational and fun, we were fortunate to raise considerable funds for patient support programs and research.”
Adam Coleman, Vice-President and Chief Operating Officer of Beasley Enterprises, credits the joint effort of the company's employees and its customers. “Beasley Enterprises and all of our fine employees and customers contributed their time, effort and donations to a great cause. They are the ones who made this campaign such a success.”
Red Apple Markets has 42 convenience stores in northeast North Carolina and southern Virginia.
