PRLog - Nov. 9, 2011 - COVINGTON, La. -- Egan Medical Equipment and Supply, a Louisiana based retailer of home medical equipment, medical and nursing supplies, vitamins and nutritional supplements and other healthcare products, has announced that the company will be holding a series of auctions for the benefit of the Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA).

What begin as a one-time commitment to have an employee participate in a fundraising event for the Muscular Dystrophy Association known as the "MDA Lock Up" event has been transformed into what Egan Medical hopes to make a regular and ongoing effort, even going so far as to dedicate a category in the company's Ebay store for auctions and other listings for which proceeds will be donated to benefit MDA.

Originally, Egan Medical's executive director Peter Egan Jr was forced to withdraw from the Lock Up event he had initially agreed to participate in despite being uncomfortable with the idea of being handcuffed and placed in the back seat of a police car. However, the company maintained that it would still make a concerted effort to help raise money for MDA despite not being able to participate in the local Lock Up event.

The company followed-up its words with action, and customers and holiday shoppers can view Egan Medical's MDA-dedicated listings at the category entitled "Muscular Dystrophy Association" in the company's Ebay store (http://stores.ebay.com/Egan-Healthcare), which uses the name of its parent company, Egan Healthcare Services.

Egan Medical is also looking into finding a way to give buyers at the company's main website EganMedical.com (http://www.eganmedical.com) an option to make a donation during the checkout process.

The items currently being auctioned off to benefit MDA include the following:

- 12" Grab Bar (manufacturer = Invacare)
- 2 Pink Walking Canes (manufacturer = Medline)
- Automatic Blood Pressure Monitor (brand = WrisTech)
- Nurses' Scrubs (manufacturer = Medline)
- 2 Premium Domain Names (BuyAmmoOnline.com & HoustonJobPost.com)
- Arm Sling (manufacturer = FLA Orthopedics)
- 3-Wheel Power Scooter (manufacturer = Drive Medical; brand = Phoenix; color = red/blue)
- 4-Wheel Power Scooter (manufacturer = Drive Medical; brand = Phoenix; color = red/blue)

For more information about the scooters being auctioned off, please see the respective page on the Egan Medical website (URL = http://www.eganmedical.com/Bobcat-3-Wheel-Scooter-p/mems-...).

Egan has no immediate plans to discontinue the fundraising efforts, and will periodically be adding new auction listings to the respective category within the company's Ebay store which will be held exclusively for the benefit of the Muscular Dystrophy Association.

The MDA Lock Up, the event in which Egan Medical was originally scheduled to participate, is described by the organization as follows: "Local business and community leaders agree to be "arrested" for having a "big heart" in the fun, MDA Lock-Up. This unique community-wide event raises funds for people with neuromuscular diseases."
