MACtac partners with Susan G. Komen for the Cure Central Florida, House of Blues and Soul Asylum

 

In honor of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, MACtac is partnering with Susan G. Komen for the Cure Central Florida, House of Blues, Orlando, and Soul Asylum to ‘Rock for the Cure.’


The ‘Rock for the Cure’ extravaganza kicks off Thursday, October 25 at 4 p.m. in the Specialty Graphic Imaging Association (SGIA) industry trade show’s Wrap Pit with ‘Wrap for the Cure.’ Cori Yarckin, an up-and-coming young rock/pop artist will be alongside the MACtac team for the Wrap Pit finale, signing autographs and giving a short acoustical performance.


The extravaganza continues with the main event – a live performance by Soul Asylum – on Friday, October 26 at the House of Blues. The opening act, Yarckin, begins at 7 p.m. All proceeds go to Susan G. Komen for the Cure.


“For 25 years, Susan G. Komen for the Cure has evolved into an amazing non-profit organization devoted to saving lives and putting an end to breast cancer,” said Jennifer Bowman, MACtac Corporate Marketing. “The organization is truly empowering. For MACtac, just being associated with an organization this devoted and dedicated to a cause so worthwhile, says it all.”


MACtac’s 2007 branding slogan, ‘Graphics that Rock’, not only defines the superior print quality and flawless performance offered by MACtac graphic products, but instills the fact that MACtac ‘rocks’ for much more than superior products.


“Teaming up with Susan G. Komen for the Cure Central Florida is another way MACtac is making an effort to recognize the importance of non-profit organizations,” Bowman said. “Following the recent launch of Portraits of Hope’s Garden in Transit, a program in which in the non-profit organization used MACtac IMAGin® B-free™ vinyl to wrap thousands of New York City taxi cabs, this opportunity further exemplifies MACtac’s ambition to ‘rock.’”
