GREENSBORO, N.C. - Nov. 14, 2017 - PRLog -- SKA Consulting Engineers, Inc., was excited to continue our support of Breast Cancer Awareness. This year, SKA extended the celebrations throughout the month of October beginning with a quilt raffle. The Circle of Care quilt raffle raised more than $5,000 for local breast cancer support. The quilt titled "Elegant Circles" was a pattern designed by Christine E. Barnes and quilted by Ania Reich, a fire protection technician in SKA's MEPFP department. There was tremendous support from other local businesses to help make this event successful. The Van Dyke Performance Space donated event tickets, Sewingly Yours of Lewisville held sewing events, The Flour Box Tea Room donated china teacups that were turned into succulent planters, and Maguita Edwards of SKA's accounting department baked a pink lemonade cake to assist in boosting quilt raffle sales.

Also, in addition to the quilt raffle, employees dropped their loose change donations into pink buckets throughout the month. On October 27th, all employees gathered for delicious pink bagels donated by New Garden Bagel, along with pink cupcakes and 'Punch Out' cancer punch. The SKA staff then posed for pictures in front of the Crown Paint and Body "Driving Hope" pink truck which was shared through the company's social media outlets. SKA has provided pink ribbon t-shirts to each staff member for the past three years and continues the tradition of gathering together to go "Pink for the Cure."

"All across our company we support awareness of breast cancer and will continue to support our community in this important event," Stephen Robinson, president of SKA Consulting Engineers, explains. "We continue to challenge other architecture and engineering firms to do the same."

"This year the cause hits home as several families have been impacted by breast cancer," stated April Jones, SKA Human Resources Manager. "It is so great to see the energy around such an important cause and the support from everyone across our Greensboro, Charlotte, Asheville, Wilmington, Charlottesville and Charleston offices as well as our corporate partners."
