In October, Zotos International raised over $7000 for City of Hope for the treatment and research of breast cancer. The fundraising began with the company's yearly Cut & Color-a-thon, where stylists from Connecticut and New Jersey volunteer their services. The one-day event raised $1800 and was open to the public. Following the Cut & Color-o-thon, Zotos held a company-wide raffle for employees in the Darien, CT, Arcadia, CA and Rosemont, IL offices, and the raffle that offered prizes ranging from iPads to restaurant gift certificates. All prizes were donated by vendors, and the event itself raised $5500.
“I’m proud to be part of a company that values the importance of giving back to our community,” said Ron Krassin, president and CEO of Zotos International. “City of Hope is an incredible organization and we are pleased to continue to support their heroic efforts.” —S.Z.
