The pallet jack up for auction this year is Raymond's pink 8210 Electric Pallet Truck, ideal for retail store, wholesale delivery and food processing applications that require more precise maneuverability in tight and/or congested areas.
"Raymond Handling Concepts Corporation has received remarkable support for our annual Pink Pallet Jack Project in the previous two years from our employees, customers, partners and local communities," comments Steve Raymond, President. "We are devoted not only as a market leader, but also as individual leaders within our communities, to continually advancing our efforts in the fight against breast cancer and the search for a cure."
Raymond Handling Concepts began its fundraising efforts early this year with its first "Beat Breast Cancer" rummage sale held in August at its offices in Auburn, Washington, where additional funds were raised for the Tina Fund and HERS Breast Cancer Foundation. Since 2014, Raymond Handling Concepts Corporation has raised more than $109,000 for charity, a large portion of this amount coming from the Pink Pallet Jack Project.
In addition to the auction, the company is opening its Fremont, California facility located at 41400 Boyce Road to the public for an open house on October 20, 2016 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. There will be live music and a raffle for various prizes including a manual pallet jack. The company's partners, customers and neighbors are invited to attend, meet Steve Raymond and see the pink pallet jack.
