)-- Magnetic Consulting Group plans an event to raise money for breast cancer research and awareness. The Sacramento marketing firm is gathering local companies, friends and family for a charity kickball tournament with all proceeds going to the Susan G. Komen For The Cure foundation.
Magnetic Consulting Group is a sales and marketing firm founded in Sacramento in 2010. The company specializes in client account acquisition and retention. National service providers hire the company to represent their service to current and new account holders.
The Susan G. Komen For The Cure association is a non-profit organization that raises money for breast cancer awareness and research efforts. The organization was founded Susan’s sister, Nancy, as a promise to do everything in her power to end breast cancer forever.
Since being founded in 1982, the organization has raised over $1.5 billion for research, education and health services, making it the largest breast cancer charity in the world. Komen has more than 75,000 volunteers nationwide, 122 affiliates in the United States (47 of 50 states), and 3 affiliates in other countries. The organization has allowed for the development of many new treatment options and a higher quality of life overall for breast cancer patients and long-term survivors.
The event will take place at Mann Park in Folsom, CA. Magnetic Consulting expects a turnout of over 40 people.
“We are constantly looking for ways to get involved in the community and make an impact. Our team is very career oriented and they understand the balance between focusing on work, personal and community involvement. I am excited to be able to continue this with several other charity organizations before the end of the year,” explains Eric Dvorak, President of Magnetic Consulting Group.
The company has worked with local animal shelters and participated in a charity poker night with Operation Smile in May.
