ATLANTA, May 12, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Promotional advertising and marketing firm, New Acquisitions of Atlanta, GA recently hosted a fundraising event for breast cancer research in Newport Beach, CA. National Director of Operations, Zachary Schuch, who has always included philanthropy in his business ventures, thought the event would be the perfect end to the networking event he personally planned and funded for the company’s managers.

The night began with a limousine bus ride to the Avalon Yacht Charter where a yacht was awaiting the team for complimentary dinner and drinks on the water, all courtesy of Schuch and New Acquisitions. With the team on board and ready to set sail for the night, Schuch announced the main goal of the night: to raise money for breast cancer research and spend time learning from one another.

“I wanted to include the fundraiser to trip, not only to show the managers by example how charity and business can go hand in hand, but also to demonstrate the influence that you can make on the world and those around you while also working towards our professional goals,” said Schuch of the fundraising event.

In attendance of the event was breast cancer survivor and advocate for breast cancer research, Jacque Balbas-Ruddy. Announced as the guest of honor, Balbas-Ruddy gave her testimony to the team over dinner and explained how foundations dedicated to breast cancer research and aiding those affected, have changed her life and helped her through her struggles.

According to Balbas-Ruddy, thanks to foundations such as these, she was able to finish her education while also caring for her children and working a full-time job.

Human Resources Coordinator at New Acquisitions, Morgan Wright, was especially touched by the company’s choice in charity. Wright’s own mother was diagnosed with breast cancer during Christmas 2011, and she’s seen first-hand the damage that the disease can inflict on the sick and their family.

“I’ll never forget that phone call,” Wright recounted of the night her mom called her to tell her the news. “I felt like my world was falling apart and I couldn’t do anything to help or change it.”

Thanks to donations from the foundations in her hometown of Austin, TX, Wright’s mom was able to complete her chemo-therapy and radiation treatments without negatively affecting the family’s finances.

“There’s no disease like cancer, I watched my mom fight for her life and come out on top,” stated Wright. “I’d say the happiest moment of my life was when I came home to visit one weekend and she had hair for the first time in 2 years. I hugged her and rubbed her hair and started to tear up because I knew I was getting my mom back.”

The team was able to raise over two thousand dollars by the end of the dinner, resulting in over four thousand dollars being donated to breast cancer research after Schuch’s promise to match the team’s contribution.
