Pipitone Group “springs” into action for Daffodil Days!

Pipitone Group has raised $450 for the American Cancer Society (ACS) through its Daffodil Days fundraiser, which runs March 18 through 22. Daffodil Days raises money for ACS by selling bunches of daffodils, which can be purchased for personal use or donated to brighten the day of an inpatient at hospitals throughout the city.

Nearly 1/3 of all PG employees participated in the fundraiser, which provided 18 Gifts of Hope—bunches of daffodils that will be delivered to patients in local 20130320_152804_resizedhospitals this week—and nine Project Care gifts—special Boyd’s Bears that will be delivered to kids at Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh of UPMC. In fact, every person who participated in the event ordered at least one anonymous daffodil donation to help a patient.

“There isn’t one of us here who has not been touched by cancer, whether through a family member or friend,” says Scott Pipitone, president.  “I’m proud of our response to this worthwhile effort.”

This year’s Daffodil Days event raised more than $400,000 across the Pittsburgh area. Funds from the campaign go toward the fight against cancer in the form of research, programming, advocacy efforts, and support groups, and the money raised here stays in the region.

Although Pittsburgh’s Daffodil Days campaign has always been one of the largest in the country, this year marked the last year for the campaign. Many regional affiliates had phased out Daffodil Days, and Pittsburgh’s was among only a handful nationwide who participated in 2013. This year’s campaign will be the last of its kind for the ACS, which is marking its 100th year of operation, and the organization will be moving on to a different campaign next year.

Thanks to all PG staff who participated in the last Daffodil Days. We’re proud to have closed out the campaign with a great success for the ACS.
