MAG INSTRUMENT INC. SHINES A LIGHT ON BREAST CANCER AWARENESS
(Ontario, Ca) – For nearly a decade Mag Instrument Inc., the company that produces the iconic Maglite line of flashlights, has observed Breast Cancer Awareness Month by partnering with National Breast Cancer Foundation, Inc.® (NBCF) to promote awareness of and raise funds to support the work of NBCF. In fact since 2008 Mag Instrument Inc. has donated $377,664.42 to NBCF.
“Just about everybody has a friend, a co-worker or a relative, if not an immediate family member, who has been challenged by this disease,” said Tony Maglica, Founder and President of Mag Instrument. “And it doesn’t just affect the patient. One case touches many lives. So we wanted to help do something about breast cancer. We chose to support NBCF because our homework told us that it’s an organization run with energy and passion, one that deploys resources in smart, practical ways. We were particularly impressed that for the past four years Charity Navigator, the most prestigious charity evaluator in the country, has given NBCF its highest 4-Star rating in terms of fiscal soundness.”
Under the agreement, Mag Instrument provides financial support to NBCF and markets specially marked and packaged MAG-LITE® SOLITAIRE® 1-AAA-cell and MINI MAGLITE® 2AA-cell flashlights. These focusing-beam machined aluminum flashlights are custom-anodized to a bright pink color, laser engraved with the NBCF logo, and packaged in special pink packaging bearing the NBCF logo.
These specially-marked pink SOLITAIRE® and MINI MAGLITE® flashlights are available at selected retailers across North America and at Maglite.com and can be found by following these links:
