Montgomeryville, Pa. - World Wide Stereo marked the addition of
NuVision 3D TVs to its assortment last week with a charity event to support The
Sandy Rollman Ovarian Cancer Foundation.
The event, held at World Wide's showroom here in association with Philadelphia Style Magazine, Absolut Vodka, Plymouth Gin and other local businesses, raised about $3,000 for the charity as well as awareness of the disease.
To support the cause, World Wide and NuVision offered special one-night-only pricing on the premium LED line and raffled off two 3D TVs. A fundraising promotion will continue through the end of the month.
"It means everything to us to be able to give back to The Sandy Rollman Ovarian Cancer Foundation," said World Wide Stereo principal Bob Cole, who was on hand for the event with NuVision president David Hester. "Since the beginning, we made a corporate decision to redirect a significant percent of our advertising budget to philanthropy."
For the past 10 years the Foundation has been funding treatments, early-detection tests and programs to educate the public and physicians about ovarian cancer.
