On Monday, December 12th, representatives from the Pink Ribbon Society made their way to the Crown Point Strack & Van Til on Broadway to showcase the outstanding results from October’s Checkout Challenge. All Cashiers at Strack & Van Til, Ultra Foods and Town & Country, asked customers if they would like to “round-up” their order to the nearest dollar. After a successful month, the Pink Ribbon Society received $45,688.44 Funds raised during Breast Cancer Awareness Month will support the programs of Pink Ribbon Society, serving the men and women of Lake, Porter, Jasper and Newton counties who struggle with the diagnosis of invasive breast cancer. Pink Ribbon has returned over $350,000 back to the community through numerous mammogram, voucher and wig programs.

Ann rewarded Sarah with an Applebee’s gift card thanking her for being one of the top four fundraising cashiers in Indiana. Since no one fights alone, Strack & Van Til would like to offer a big thanks to the customers for donating their change, helping make this check presentation possible.
