Jaxon Sponsorship: 2008 Pink Ribbon Runway Gala
Jaxon Photo is proud to announce it is a sponsor of Pink Ribbon Runway 2008. The Pink Ribbon Runway Gala is a formal fundraising event to benefit breast cancer research, education, screening, outreach and treatment. Fifty percent of the Gala proceeds were donated to the Georgia Cancer foundation. This is Jaxon’s first year as a sponsor of the event.
“As a sponsor for this event, we want to do our part to try and make a difference in the fight against breast cancer,” said Livingston Jackson, owner of Jaxon. “We are proud to say we are donating over $3000 in service and products to support the efforts of Kelly Charles-Collins and The Pink Ribbon Runway™.
The Pink Ribbon Runway™ was founded by Kelly Charles-Collins, owner of K Nicole, to celebrate the grace and dignity with which her mother, aunt, godmother, and so many other women have triumphed over breast cancer. This event also serves to heighten awareness of the many lives that have been and will be lost to breast cancer if a cure is not found.
Jaxon has been providing metro Atlanta and the east coast with award-winning, top quality creative photography and exemplary service.
