Brinkmann Constructors Raises $17,500 for Friends of Kids with Cancer

Brinkmann Constructors is proud to announce that their annual community charity initiative called BECAUSE (Brinkmann Employees Care About United Service Efforts) raised $17,500 in 2015 for Friends of Kids with Cancer, a local not-for-profit that helps children undergoing treatment for and survivors of, cancer and blood related diseases be kids through educational, recreational and emotional programs. Members of the BECAUSE committee presented a check to Judy Ciapciak, Executive Director of Friends of Kids with Cancer, at the Cardinals Kids Cancer Center at the David C. Pratt Cancer Center in St. Louis on Thursday, October 29, 2015. “Friends of Kids with Cancer is extremely grateful to everyone at Brinkmann Constructors for choosing our organization for their 2015 Brinkmann BECAUSE campaign,” says Ciapciak, “They are a fun-loving, energetic and caring group who gave so much from their hearts. Their passion for helping kids with cancer…be kids was so evident in all they did to support our mission. Friends of Kids with Cancer is all about helping families and the Brinkmann BECAUSE Family did just that by raising the incredible amount of $17,500.”

 

Founded in 2014 by Brinkmann employees, the BECAUSE initiative is a way to give back to the community where they live, work and play. Each year, Brinkmann employees nominate and vote on a charity. The BECAUSE volunteer committee then organizes special events and recruits coworkers, clients, friends and family to volunteer time, talents and money to benefit the charity they chose. “Our BECAUSE committee chose to focus on Friends of Kids with Cancer to make a difference in the lives of children and their families coping with this horrible disease on a daily basis,” says Brian Satterthwaite, president of Brinkmann Constructors, “This type of positive involvement within the community is a very important part of who Brinkmann Constructors is.”
