Edgetech, a Quanex company, has pledged its support to the UK glass and glazing industry’s much loved fundraisers, Hope 66, with a donation for $2500. The presentation took place in Chicago as the intrepid team were about to embark on their 2616 mile epic to Santa Monica, looking to raise significant funds for Hope House Childrens’ Hospices, an organisation that provides care to terminally ill children and their families. The cheque was presented to the team by Mike Hovan, Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing at Quanex Building Products, who is described by Gary Morton as a ‘great friend of GM fundraising’ after representing Edgetech’s support of the team on previous US fundraisers. Andy Jones, Managing Director at Edgetech comments: “Mike made the trip to Chicago to meet the team for dinner before they set off on their marathon journey and we’re thrilled that the donation has contributed to the team surpassing its £100,000 milestone.
“Knowing many of the team personally, I recognise how much effort goes into this initiative. I hope the Edgetech donation will keep the team inspired as they endure the highs and lows of Route 66.”
