Furniture Today Staff -- Furniture Today, January 30, 2013
AT THE MARKET — Bedding major Tempur-Pedic has donated an additional $12,500 to the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network, as part of its total 2012 donation of $200,000.
Julie Fleshman, center, of the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network, receives a check representing Tempur-Pedic’s 2012 donation to the organization from company executives Mark Sarvary, left, Rick Anderson, Todd Miller and Chad Colony.
The donation was made on behalf of the first 250 Las Vegas Market attendees who participated in a Tempur-Pedic Rest Test to try the company's newest product innovations displayed in World Market Center C-1512.
The Action Network provides research, patient support, community outreach and advocacy for a cure for pancreatic cancer.
To date, Tempur-Pedic has raised more than $1.25 million for the organization, in part to help fund four research grants.
"In 2013, we remain dedicated to supporting the network and plan to continue bolstering it in any way possible by working with our retailers and our organization, starting with this donation at the Las Vegas Market trade show," Rick Anderson, president of Tempur-Pedic North America, said in a press release.
