SPINX Raises More Than $300,000 for MODJun 13, 2018 02:42PM ● By Kathleen Maris
SPINX, a Greenville-based fuel and convenience retail company, announces that it raised $334,451.00 for the March of Dimes, nearly doubling its record from last year of $180,000.
“I’m so proud of the work and generosity of the entire SPINX team, our customers, and our business partners for supporting this year’s campaign and making it such a huge success,” said SPINX President Stan Storti, who also served as the 2018 Chairman for the Greenville March of Dimes March for Babies. “Our goal has always been not only to raise more funds to support the March of Dimes, but also to raise awareness of its ongoing efforts to fight for the health and well-being of moms and their babies. As a parent personally touched by the March of Dimes and chairman of this year’s Walk, I’m so proud of the work we’ve done and the positive impact it will have on moms and babies in our community!”
In addition to the company campaign, SPINX also donated a year of free gas to recognize the hard work and dedication of individuals who raised significant funds during the March for Babies. The March of Dimes presented Sara Beth Settle with a year of free gas in recognition of her passionate work and commitment to the cause. After losing her daughter, Leona, at 29 weeks earlier this year, Settle turned to the March of Dimes and personally raised $5,260, and her team raised $10,300 to honor Leona.
“We can’t thank SPINX enough for their commitment to the March of Dimes through their ongoing support and their tremendous donation this year,” said Katie Peden, development manager for the March of Dimes. “We are humbled by the entire company’s dedication and involvement in raising a record-breaking donation for us, and we are so appreciative of their support and Stan’s leadership as chairman this year.”
Throughout the 10 years SPINX has supported March of Dimes, it has raised more than $1,000,000. As a community-centric business, SPINX is dedicated to supporting local organizations that focus on improving the lives of children in the communities it serves. The money raised each year during the March for Babies campaign helps area moms have healthier pregnancies, assists families with newborns in the Intensive Care Units, and helps fund research to fight birth defects and premature birth.
