HIRSCHBACH RAISES $17,000 FOR CANCER CENTER

By: Hirschbach Motor Lines

Hirschbach Motor Lines, Inc. was able to donate $17,000 for the June E. Nylen Cancer Center in Sioux City, IA from funds raised in their annual charity golf outing.

 

The money has been designated to go to the SOS (Serving Our Sisters) Program and will be used to provide mammograms and early cancer screening for women who may otherwise be unable to afford such tests.

 

?This year?s event was especially meaningful to me because cancer struck our family,? said Wayne Burch, vice president of sales for Hirschbach and coordinator of the event.  ?My wife?s cancer diagnosis made it

even more important for me to support the Cancer Center,? said Burch.

 

Because of Hirschbach?s efforts in previous benefit outings, 150 women were able to participate in the SOS Program in 2004.  All funds raised came from employees of Hirschbach Motor Lines, Inc., their vendors and business associates, as well as some other local businesses.
