West Marine Community Days

2010 West Marine check presentation.

A couple of years ago, Sausalito West Marine store manager, David Forbes, decided that the Bay Area West Marine stores needed to get involved in LLS’s Leukemia Cup Regatta. And he made it happen.

David started the West Marine Challenge, a fundraising campaign for West Marine employees, friends, family and the public. The Challenge is three-fold and involves a friendly competition between stores, individual employee fundraising and team participation in the Leukemia Cup.

This year, the West Marine team has committed to raise an incredible $25,000! Each Bay Area West Marine store will host a unique Community Day with food, raffle prizes and fun. Five percent of the sales on that day will go to LLS in support of the team’s overall fundraising goal.

“It’s a win, win for both organizations,” said David. “Both our associates and customers respond well to this important cause.”

Thank you David and West Marine! We love the creativity and want to support your efforts. (Readers, here’s where you come in…)
