20th Annual Ride for Roswell- June 26 and 27th 2015
Everest Receivable Services, Inc. was proud to participate in the Ride for Roswell which was celebrating its 20th year raising funds to battle cancer. Our team of riders and volunteers spent the day both riding in the event and helping setup for the day’s festivities. Kellie Pickler kicked off this year’s event with a free concert at the “Celebration of Hope”
In 1897, Dr. Roswell Park and Mr. Edward H. Butler, publisher of the Buffalo Evening News, asked the New York State Legislature to introduce a bill that would provide a $7,500 grant to establish a cancer research laboratory in the University of Buffalo – School of Medicine. That bill was passed in 1898, and the New York State Pathological Laboratory of the University of Buffalo – the first facility in the world dedicated specifically to cancer research – was founded. The facility gave birth to what would later be known as Roswell Park Cancer Institute.
Starting back in 1996, The Ride for Roswell’s first year, one thousand riders raised just over $100,000. This year eight thousand riders registered and raised more than $4.5 million. Everest employees, family, and friends peddled miles and raised thousands in donations. It was a humbling experience for all involved and a real honor to help this noble cause.
2015 Furever Friends Dog Rescue
Everest Receivable Services Inc. is happy to announce our third year of participation and sponsoring of the Furever Friends Dog Rescue of WNY Annual Basket Raffle. Helping our furry friends in the animal kingdom always seems to bring out an enthusiastic effort from our employees. Our dedicated staff known as the “green shirts” takes part by baking a cornucopia of sweets for the baked goods sale, donating great gifts for the raffle, manning the tables during the event, and helping the great team from Furever Friends deliver the winning baskets.
Furever Friends Dog Rescue works tirelessly to provide a safe home for hundreds of abused and neglected animals each year. The annual fundraiser and basket raffle helps offset the cost of food, shelter, and in many cases medical services for these innocent and mistreated animals. Over the past three years our combined efforts have raised over $30,000 that helped rescue hundreds of animals.
It is a great honor to participate in this even and help save some of “man’s best friends”.
