Gunlocke and Dani Leather teamed up in February to spread some love and raise awareness for the 2011 Cupid’s Chase 5K Race, an annual charity marathon to benefit Community Options, a national non-profit that develops homes and employment opportunities for people with disabilities.
The manufacturers hosted a cocktail reception and silent auction fundraiser to kick off the race, raising more than $16,000 through a silent auction of items donated by Gunlocke dealers and A&D partners, as well as sponsorship donations from Lane/DIRT, CFI-Commercial Furniture Interiors, WB Wood, BFI, LJ Duffy, MMoser Architects, Office Scapes and WB Mason.
“At Gunlocke, we’re continually looking for the opportunity to help support non-profit organizations that make impactful contributions to their communities,” says Diane Hamilton, marketing services manager at Gunlocke. “We’re pleased that we could also work with one of our valuable partners, Dani Leather, to support such an amazing cause.”
The Cupid’s Chase 5K annually takes place in 24 cities, throughout 10 states. About 700 participants completed the New York City run.
