AC Stores Carry On Tradition Selling Shamrocks for Muscular Dystrophy Association
AC stores set lofty goals in its Klawock, St. Paul and St. Mary's stores as they began fundraising for MDA 2011. All AC stores across Alaska sold shamrocks in the month of March. Each store was challenged to beat last year's totals. By the end of March, AC had raised $8500.00 with all stores participating - well done, Team AC!
As well, Walt Pickett, V.P. of Operations, volunteered to be taken to "jail" for MDA. "Jailbirds" raise "bail" to donate to MDA. Walt was challenged to raise $1600.00, but he raised the bar and in 6 hours collected over $2500.00. Word was out from stores that they wanted to donate to keep Walt in jail rather than donate to get him out! Well done, Walt for augmenting AC's total $11,000.00 donation for MDA 2011. This year's total donation exceeded last year's by $2800. Every store contributed with the help and support of our customers. ACC proudly sponsors organizations that enrich our communities.
