Toro Silent Auction for Charity
Did you miss out buying a Toro when we sold them earlier this year?
Even limiting them one to a customer, all of ours were reserved within 2 weeks! However, we held one back to give our customers who missed out one more chance to get one.... because we love you guys!
Here's what we're going to do:
Toro models are selling between $75 and $109 on eBay right now. This last one, still new in his box, is going to be sold by silent auction to benefit a local charity.
His price will be start at $85 (shipping is not included in the bid price), and all profits will go to Jen's Friends Cancer Foundation.
Jen's Friends was started in memory of a local woman who passed away from brain cancer in 1998. Her dying wish was to help others struggling with the financial burdens associated with the disease. Long drives to expensive treatments, special diets, time off from work for caregivers - It all takes a financial toll that isn't covered by insurance. In the 18 years since Jen died, Jen's Friends Cancer Foundation has gone on to help hundreds of families in the Mount Washington Valley area with gas cards to get to treatments, food cards for local supermarkets, even paying rent and utility bills for some families.
I have personally seen the difference this organization has made to families, some of whom might have lost their homes in order to pay for treatments if it wasn't for Jen's Friends. We wish there was an organization like this in every state! We at Triple Mountain are proud to support Jen's Friends in their mission to insure cancer patients and their families can focus on healing without the added worry about bills piling up.
If you are looking for a Toro, please consider bidding on this one. He'll be the model you'll be proudest to own, since you will also have helped families struggling with cancer to eat, pay for their meds, and get to treatments.
