Love: Simply the Breast!

More than 38,000 people, including over 2,000 breast cancer survivors, walked, ran and cheered their way down Allen Parkway at the Komen Houston Race for the Cure® last Saturday morning in downtown Houston, and Love Advertising couldn’t miss being a part of the fun!

Our own Love team participated on Race Day in many ways, by running, walking, fundraising, and even assisting with coordinating the event and media interviews.

Plantation Homes is a platinum sponsor of this important event that was established to honor grant recipients and outstanding donors and volunteers. The event is also designed to inform the community of where and how money raised at Komen Houston events will be used.

The ‘Built for the Cure’ marketing campaign is a focal point of all of the company’s marketing efforts from signs in model homes to marketing in print and electronic media. In addition to increasing an awareness of the disease, buyers know that a portion of the proceeds from their new home will be donated to the organization known for bringing worldwide attention to breast cancer; with the money going directly to the Houston Affiliate of Susan G.
