Carlisle Cares: Presentation to Penelope House
The yearly fund-raising efforts of Carlisle & Associates and Carlisle Medical staff recently resulted in a presentation to Penelope House. Each year, Carlisle staff members participate in company fundraising events to raise donations to support Penelope House and their efforts. The company celebrated this contribution in a presentation attended by Carlisle staff, friends and directors of Penelope House. During the presentation, Mr. Carlisle stated it was appropriate to provide this gift during the Christmas season because the giving spirit is ever present during this special time of year. He recognized the company Fundraising Committee and Carlisle staff for their generous spirit and efforts throughout the year.
Carlisle staff raised $8,500 throughout the year by holding prize raffles, the annual Carlisle bake sale and other activities. Mr. and Mrs. Carlisle matched the employees’ contributions to present Penelope House with a total donation of $17,000.
As Tonie Ann Torrans, Executive Director of Penelope House, accepted the gift, she stated that Carlisle was a very special friend and partner. Mobile County Commissioner, Jerry Carl, added that activities of this type are so important to the community.
Carlisle & Associates and Carlisle Medical have been a part of the Mobile community for over 38 years. Their success has been extended throughout the community by showing support for causes such as Domestic Violence Awareness. The company prides itself in caring for their associates and their community.
