We are blowing you a kiss and thanking you for making the 2018 Walk of Life for Breast Cancer such a great success. The Dixie Electric, Plumbing & Air team took a break from providing plumbing, electrical, and HVAC services to be a part of this great event. More than 2,000 runners streamed through the streets of downtown Montgomery on Saturday, April 21. It was a display of pink wigs, pink shirts, and pink tutus. Many of the runners and walkers carried personal messages to honor those who lost the fight against cancer and those who have survived.
It’s not easy to put on an event like this, and the folks at Joy to Life tell us they had more than 300 volunteers help make the day a success. That says something about the caring spirit of our friends and neighbors in Central Alabama.
Dixie Electric, Plumbing & Air is extraordinarily proud to work so closely with the Joy to Life Foundation. The annual Walk of Life helps the foundation in its mission to provide free mammograms and breast cancer screening to Alabama women who might otherwise not have access to them because of economic reasons. Since it was founded in 2001, the Foundation has provided more than 95,000 mammograms directly and indirectly. Lives have been saved in every Alabama county. It is a great cause and you can learn more about it at their website.
Dixie also wants to extend a special additional thank you to the hundreds of folks who stopped by our booth to say hello and pick up a free plunger and other gifts. It’s always a treat to meet the wonderful people who we have been serving for the last 110 years.
We also hope you took time to register in our Blast From the Past contest to find the oldest air conditioner, water heater, and electrical panel in our service area. Entries are now closed and the winners will be announced shortly.
If you missed us at this event, don’t worry. Dixie Electric, Plumbing & Air has a long history of giving back to the community, so chances are good you will see us at future community events. Visiting our Facebook page is a great way to keep track of what we are doing.
Thanks again for your support and remember, whatever your electrical, plumbing, or heating and cooling needs in Montgomery, Auburn, Opelika, and points in between, Dixie is here to help. Just remember our motto, “Call Dixie and it’s done!”
