The line stretching out the door of the employee café at Sally Beauty Holdings world headquarters in Denton, Texas was filled with energized employees decked out in myriad shades of pink. The occasion was a building-wide celebration of the new partnership between Sally Beauty Holdings and Susan G. Komen for the Cure®. And in honor of the occasion our company was hosting a free lunch for all of its employees. As a way to encourage our employees to show their commitment to Komen, if you made a donation to Komen you received a raffle ticket to win a basket full of beauty products from Sally Beauty.
When the café tables were full of employees with their lunches of chicken fried steak or grilled chicken with all the trimmings, Gary Winterhalter, President and CEO of Sally Beauty Holdings, stepped up to the microphone to make an exciting announcement that Sally Beauty Holdings will be the presenting sponsor for the inaugural Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure in Denton, Texas. Then Mary Frances Hoover, Executive Director of North Texas Affiliate of Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure® filled the audience in on all of the volunteer opportunities available on race day September 24, 2011.
We would like to invite everyone to join us in supporting Susan G. Komen for the Cure® by participating in the Komen Denton Race for the Cure® or any of the other 125 races across the U.S. held each year – go to www.komen.org to find one closest to you .
