Service Experts of Raleigh will be donating 5% of all sales from their pink vans and also donate $10 for every Precision tune-up to their local chapter, Susan G.

This is the second time Fras-Air/General Service Experts has painted two of their vans pink to raise money for breast cancer. In 2015, Fras-Air raised over $7,000 for Komen North Jersey. David Schneider, the general manager and one of his technicians both lost their mothers to other forms of cancer and were inspired to help other families.
“The National Cancer Institute reported that 107,184 women in New Jersey had breast cancer in 2016,” Schneider said. “While the amount of cases is actually decreasing each year, that still represents a huge number of families who are dealing with this disease, and there is still a serious need for research and support.”
Chris Overton, the General Manager for Service Experts of Raleigh, reiterated Schneider’s feelings. “According to the North Carolina State Center for Health Statistics, breast cancer is the number one type of cancer in our state – for both females and males.”
