All of us at Market Mentors are ‘tickled pink’ to announce our 10th year in business. Our humble beginnings date back to 2003 when Michelle Abdow opened shop in her Longmeadow, Massachusetts home. Since then, we have grown to include a strong client base of small to medium-sized businesses and international companies with global reach. In celebration of our first double-digit anniversary we have organized support for Rays of Hope, a local philanthropic initiative that will benefit our community and clients, most of whom have been with us since the very beginning.
Rays of Hope was launched in 1994 by the Baystate Regional Cancer Program’s Comprehensive Breast Center and includes an annual walk and run, and Pink Day celebrations. Market Mentors has organized a Pink Day that will take place on Friday, October 18, 2013. Many of our local clients will be joining us to raise awareness by wearing a pink t-shirt designed by Market Mentors. Participants have generously pledged donations to Rays of Hope to bolster fundraising for this worthy cause. Over 300 individuals have joined us in the pursuit to raise awareness and find a cure for breast cancer with Rays of Hope — even Bugsy, the bed bug detecting beagle at Braman Termite and Pest Elimination will be sporting pink on October 18th!
Market Mentors support for Rays of Hope is expanding our history of participation in local philanthropic initiatives. We also co-host the annual Kids Safety Expo held at the Basketball Hall of Fame and help support the annual Salvation Army Coats for Kids campaigns in western Massachusetts — which is going on right now!
Additionally, Market Mentors success has not gone unnoticed within the community. The Affiliated Chambers of Commerce of Greater Springfield recently announced that Market Mentors has been nominated for the Super 60 Awards Program, which recognizes the 30 fastest growing privately-held companies and the 30 privately-held companies with the largest revenues in the Greater Springfield area.
Thank you to all of our clients that have helped us achieve so much over the last decade. We appreciate your support for our Pink Day celebration and look forward to working with you for years to come — it’s all about results!
