John Thomas Furniture Announces Think Pink Giveaway
Whitewood Industries’, John Thomas Furniture division announced that it will give-away a custom painted pink Bombay Chest this High Point Market in honor of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
Through their social media channels, the company has been encouraging dealers to “THINK PINK” this month.
According to Bryan Sprinkles vice-president sales and marketing, everyone has been affected in a direct or indirect way by breast cancer.
“We have all lost someone, or know someone who has lost someone, to the disease,” states Sprinkles. “The fight for a cure is just as important today as it was when National Breast Cancer Awareness month began in October of 1985.”
Current statistics state that roughly twelve percent of women will develop invasive breast cancer over the course of their lifetime.
The Bombay Chest, currently displayed in the company’s showroom front window, MSRP’s well over $500. Dealers can enter on John Thomas Furniture’s Facebook or Instagram page or dealers are invited to enter while at Market in the company’s showroom. Entries will be received through Saturday, October 19th, opening day of Market. The winner will be announced on Sunday, October 20th.
Throughout the give-away, the company has led people to the Pretty In Pink Foundation (https://www.prettyinpinkfoundation.org) website to learn more, and donate to the cause.
