On Friday, October 18, 2013, Flaster Greenberg sponsored "GO PINK" day to support the American Cancer Society (ACS). Each employee interested in participating was given either a pink bracelet or men’s pin in honor of their contribution. All money raised for GO PINK day will be donated to the ACS to aid in cancer research.
For 100 years, the ACS has worked relentlessly to save lives and create a world with less cancer and more birthdays. Together with millions of their supporters worldwide, they’re helping people stay well, helping people get well, finding cures, and fighting back against cancer.
