Fundraising For Diabetes in Barrow

April 1, 2010

Alaska Commercial Company recently teamed up with the American Diabetes Association in Barrow, Alaska to host the first annual dinner fundraiser for ADA. Mansour Alzaharna introduced the idea, and he, along with many volunteers from the community managed to sell 150 tickets to the dinner at the local middle school.
Walt Pickett, VP of Operations and General Manager of AC, flew to Barrow to support the community fundraising event, which was a huge success. The dinner featured a halibut menu, along with a lively display of entertainment and culture by Polynesian dancers.
Most importantly, over $5200 was raised for The American Diabetes Association in Alaska!
Thank you to the community of Barrow for their wonderful support. The AC team is proud to continue our commitment to sponsoring organizations that enrich our communities.
