Larry and Pam Bennett of IMPACT Search and Placement, L.L.C. of Portage, have long been supports of charitable causes. “Our family and company have been blessed in many was,” said Larry, “and we simply want to give something back and to a worthy cause! He further states, “Some years back and after much thought we picked a few good organizations to get involved with.
All of us are related to, or know someone who has been touch by cancer, so it was not hard for us to pick the Amercan Cancer Society for one of our donations and involvement. We feel that it is extremely important not only to donate towards the research, prevention, treatment and cure for cancer, but equally, to build the awareness of the deadly disease in women, men and children alike. We are not looking for praise or recognition; we are just trying to do our part!”
In doing their part, the Bennett family along with Bob DeLeon, Jr., owner of Dream Limousine have put together a package of four tickets to the Monday, March 26 game be the Detroit Red Wings and the Anaheim Ducks, plus a limo ride to the game and back.
