Husqvarna Australia has proudly announced they will be continuing their partnership with the McGrath Foundation in 2017 to assist raise funds for Breast Care Nurses around Australia, with their Saws for a Cause initiative.
This partnership will see Husqvarna Servicing Dealers around Australia ‘Go Pink’ in October for Breast Cancer Awareness month by hosting local events to raise important funds for the McGrath Foundation. To launch this initiative, Foundation Ambassador and Director Tracy Bevan will join all staff at Husqvarna national office in Tuggerah, NSW for a special morning tea on Friday 13th October.
Husqvarna’s Saws for a Cause commitment will see $5.00 from every pink Husqvarna toy chainsaw sold during October go to the McGrath Foundation. Additionally, for every purchase of a pink toy chainsaw during October, consumers will go into the draw to win a Husqvarna 536Lixp Battery Chainsaw Kit valued at $1,047.
Saws for a Cause will further see Husqvarna donating $10.00 from the sale of every Husqvarna Battery Chainsaw sold throughout the year to the Foundation, to help ensure support continues outside of Breast Cancer Awareness month.
All funds raised by Husqvarna at dealer events for the McGrath Foundation will go directly to assist the placement of specialist McGrath Breast Care Nurses in communities around the country. These dedicated nurses help individuals and their families experiencing breast cancer by providing physical, psychological and emotional support. This support occurs from the time of diagnosis, right throughout treatment and is available for free.
“We’re very proud to be continuing our Saws for a Cause partnership with the McGrath Foundation. We know that breast cancer affects women of all ages around Australia, so awareness is critical. We’re proud to play our part and help raise awareness and important funds so the McGrath Foundation can continue to make a difference,” said David Boyd, Managing Director of Husqvarna Australia.
“Breast cancer is the most common cause of cancer in Australian women and with a 38 percent expected increase in the need for Breast Care Nurses until 2020, it’s important that we keep up the awareness and fundraising,” Mr Boyd concluded.
Join in the fight with Husqvarna and #goPink in October.
