NTC Will Partner With Area Restaurants to Raise Awareness and Funds for the American Cancer Society Through the Relay for Life Event in Palm Harbor
(Palm Harbor, Fla.,) – As part of its ongoing efforts to give back to the local community,Nationwide Title Clearing (NTC) is actively participating in the American Cancer Society’s annual Relay for Life event – and is currently inviting area restaurants to get involved through team sponsorship. Sponsors will have an opportunity to promote their business while helping NTC raise funds for cancer research. The local Relay for Life will be held at Palm Harbor University High School; the event will start at 6 p.m. on April 13, 2012, and continue overnight, ending with a closing ceremony the morning of April 14.
“Cancer has impacted the lives of countless individuals throughout our community. Many people have a friend or family member who has battled cancer, and some have faced it themselves. All of us at NTC are committed to doing our part to raise awareness and funds for the fight against cancer, and we hope that other local businesses will join with us,” said Joellen Raiti, Vice President of Marketing at Nationwide Title Clearing. Raiti is also volunteering as Publicity Chair for the Relay for Life Committee, Palm Harbor Chapter.
Headquartered in Palm Harbor, Florida, NTC is recognized as the industry’s leading residential mortgage post-closing services provider. The company has a long history of giving back to the local community through partnerships with various non-profit organizations, including the Homeless Emergency Project (HEP) in Clearwater and Toys for Tots® of Tampa Bay.
NTC is sponsoring a team of 30 walkers for the Palm Harbor Relay for Life. The theme of this year’s event is “Toon Out Cancer”; participants are getting into the spirit by naming their teams after cartoon characters. NTC’s walkers have dubbed themselves the Smurfs, and their slogan is, “Smurfing Cancer Out!” The NTC team has set an ambitious goal of raising $15,000 for the American Cancer Society, and Raiti hopes area restaurants will take advantage of sponsorship opportunities to help them reach that goal.
“There are two things most anyone can appreciate: good food and a good cause,” noted Raiti. “We’d like to invite local restaurants to consider sponsoring our team. Sponsors will not only help us raise funds for the American Cancer Society, but they’ll also gain exposure and create goodwill among area residents. This can help them acquire new customers and encourage return visits from existing patrons.”
