    Ray’s Food Place Raises $73K to Fight Breast Cancer

    Funds went to 14 local research and awareness services

    Ray’s Food Place’s annual October campaign to raise funds for local breast cancer research and awareness organizations raised $73,344 to support the work of local foundations and organizations.

    The Ray’s Pink R campaign asked customers to “round-up” their grocery order to the nearest dollar amount and donate the difference.

    “Our team was passionate about the Pink R cause and many [knew] individuals affected so they really got excited to help,” said Rocky Campbell, VP of operations and team captain for the six-store team that won the inter-company fundraising competition. “The connection to the cause by all Ray’s store employees and the generosity of our Ray’s customers helped us to raise a phenomenal amount this year.”

    All of the funds raised will support 14 different local organizations, which provide a range of varying services related to the fight against cancer. Since 2007, Ray’s Pink R Program has raised over $400,000. Organizations were identified and nominated by local stores for inclusion in the program. This year, the Pink R program supported:

    • Relay for Life – American Cancer Society, Eureka, Calif.
    • Willamette Valley Cancer Center – Breast Cancer Research, Eugene, Ore.
    • Samaritan Hospital – North Albany
    • Douglas County Cancer Services – Roseburg, Ore.
