On Thursday, July 14, the Alliance of Automotive Service Providers of New Jersey (AASP/NJ) met with representatives from the Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center to make a donation at the Meadowlands Exposition Center in Secaucus, NJ, host of the association’s NORTHEAST® Automotive Services Show, to help the organization in its efforts to combat prostate cancer. Last month, AASP/NJ held its fifth annual Race Night event at Pole Position in Jersey City, where the association raised $1,000 that will be put to great use at MSK and bring them one step closer to finding a cure.
Memorial Sloan Kettering is delivering on the promise of personalized cancer medicine and setting the stage for transformational change, both in the near term and for years to come. From breakthrough discoveries in their laboratories to new outpatient facilities expanding access to their care, their goal is to change how the world treats cancer.
“It is my honor to thank AASP/NJ for their recent gift and welcome them to Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center (MSK)’s 2016 Corporate Partners for Excellence (CPE) program,” says MSK’s Development Officer, Natalia Montoya. “Their generosity enables our physician-scientists to provide cancer patients with the best treatment available today, while working on cures for tomorrow. We are grateful for their support.”
AASP/NJ President Jeff McDowell, who delivered the donation personally, is thrilled that the association has stepped up and gotten involved. “Unfortunately, although we have seen quite a few of our members deal with this cancer recently, the fact is that everyone knows someone who has been touched by this horrible disease,” he says. “It is my hope that we, as an association, are able to make even the tiniest difference to help MSK in their research, and we look forward to working with them not only with Race Night but with the NORTHEAST show as well.”
