West Palm Beach, FL –June 20, 2017—The American Cancer Society (ACS) and RGF Environmental Group Inc. (RGF) announced that they renewed their strategic partnership to raise funds for cancer research and services in Florida. Through the Halos for Hope partnership, RGF will donate a portion of sales from its most popular IAQ products, the REME HALO® In-Duct Air Purifier, BLU QR® UV stick light, Quad-DM® Ion Generator for In-Duct HVAC units and the Quad-MS® Ion Generator for Mini Split units from June 1 through December 1, 2017. The American Cancer Society will receive a portion of the proceeds for each of these units sold in the state of Florida. In addition, RGF is making available its environmentally-friendly, 110 ft. mega yacht, Envision, to serve as a venue for ACS fundraising activities.
These funds will stay in Florida and help citizens receive lifesaving ACS services like Free Rides to Treatment, Free Wigs and Support Programs, Free Lodging, 24/7 Live Telephone Support, Research and other statewide programs.
“It is my pleasure to announce that the American Cancer Society and RGF will work together to put an end to cancer. Without the constant support of generous donations from organizations like RGF, we cannot fund research and provide lifesaving, services to the community. I take great pride in knowing that there are thoughtful organizations like RGF who believe in our mission to help people in every community stay well, get well, find cures and fight back.” Chris Snyder, Senior Market Manager, Community Engagement with the American Cancer Society of Palm Beach County
