All Aboard the Snowball Express - 2012 Fundraiser!

12.17.12

snowball expressAdvantEdge Business Centers is proud to announce our 2012 Holiday charity of choice: Snowball Express!  One of our Chevy Chase, DC clients, North American Network, was kind enough to suggest Snowball as our charity of choice this year.  About Snowball Express:

“Snowball Express started in early 2006 with a simple idea: provide hope and new memories to the children of military fallen heroes who have died while on active duty since 9/11.  America should honor and pay tribute to the children of those military fallen heroes who have died while honorably serving since 9/11.

In December of 2006, nearly 900 family members from all across America and the world gathered in Southern California for an unforgettable holiday gathering. Kids and widows discovered they weren't alone. And they found they weren't forgotten.

It was a totally volunteer effort which came together in just a few months to create the largest all-expense-paid gathering for the families of our fallen warriors since 9/11.”– Snowball Express’ Mission Statement

Since 2006, Snowball Express has partnered with such sponsors like American Airlines, Oakley, and BP Express (just to name a few) to throw an annual gathering for the children of our nation’s fallen soldiers.  American Airlines has become the "Official Airline of Snowball Express", with six aircraft donated to provide all-expenses paid travel for the families.
AdvantEdge is thrilled to join Snowball’s mission and will match up to the first $2,000 donated.  Once we have tallied our total pool, we’ll then send the cumulative donation to Snowball Express after our annual holiday party.

There are two ways to contribute:

1)      By donating directly through the Snowball Express website or mail (postmarked to “Snowball Express, c/o Amegy Bank, Dept D8256, P.O Box 650002, Dallas, Texas 75265-0002). If you choose this option, please forward your receipt to info@advantedgebc.com

2)      By donating through AdvantEdge, i.e. adding to our pool of donations via cash or check (made out to Snowball Express, Inc.).  You can also request a donation to be added to your December 2012 invoice as a convenient alternative to cash/check.

Whether you personally have lost a loved one in combat, know someone who has lost a family member in the military, or just feel strongly about Snowball’s cause, this is an opportunity to honor our fallen veterans while making a difference for their children.  So please donate today!
