GCU - Greek Catholic Union To Support Lee National Denim Day

The Greek Catholic Union (GCU) is participating in Lee National Denim Day in support of the American Cancer Society.

Beaver, PA (I-Newswire) October 2, 2012 - GCU (Greek Catholic Union of the USA) announces plans to participate for the third year in the support of breast cancer awareness month for October. The GCU is participating in Lee National Denim Day, a fundraiser created by the Lee Jeans Corporation to support research of breast cancer treatments and cures, as well as provide education to patients and families struggling with breast cancer. This year, all fundraising efforts in participation of Lee Denim Day will go to the American Cancer Society. Team GCU consists of National Headquarters staff collecting donations, as well as several lodges and districts across the U.S. holding individual local events.

"This is a great opportunity to contribute to a cause that affects so many families personally," said Christie Petty, Fraternal Director. "It is especially encouraging to see so many of our members getting involved."

Lodges and districts were encouraged to create their own unique projects and submit the information to GCU National Headquarters. Customized advertising materials were created and ribbon pins, compliments of Lee, as well as other promotional items were sent to aid in promoting the local events. The GCU Facebook page, www.facebook.com/gcu.greek.catholic.union, has been instrumental in the awareness of not only each event, but also the effects of breast cancer as a disease.

Over the past two years, the GCU has raised over $5,000 through the Lee National Denim Day event. This year employees at GCU Headquarters will wear jeans on Friday, October 5 to show their support. Results of this year's donations, along with photos, will be released in the December issue of the GCU Magazine, a bi-monthly publication.
