Siuprem Donates $52,670 to American Cancer Society
To Benefit Breast Cancer Programs And Research
Company Increases Pledge to $55,000 for 2013
ATLANTA (February 5, 2013) – Siuprem Inc., a full-service independently owned insurance premium finance company, has presented the Atlanta-based American Cancer Society with a check for $52,670 for breast cancer programs and research and the fight against breast cancer. Siuprem presented the check to the Society on February 1 during
a ceremony at Siuprem’s Alpharetta offices, where employees and executives were decked out in their best pink finery.
Siuprem funded its contribution through the 2012 Siuprem Cares Agency Challenge whereby they pledged $5 for every commercial contract financed by their Independent Insurance Agency partners throughout the country. More than 180 agents took the challenge in 2012. Siuprem is a corporate flagship sponsor of the American Cancer Society’s Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walk in Atlanta.
John W. LaMay, Jr., president of Siuprem, says the company has proudly supported the American Cancer Society since 2010, donating more than $140,000 to date. The company will step up its dedication to the fight against breast cancer in 2013 by increasing its pledge to $55,000.
“We are proud to announce that we’re increasing our commitment to the American Cancer Society and the cause of fighting breast cancer in 2013,” says LaMay. “We have had great support from our agents, and we know we’ll have that support again this year. We thank all of them for joining Siuprem Cares by accepting our Agency Challenge in support of this great cause.”
Several agents attended the presentation and program, which were followed by a festive lunch, and Siuprem presented them with awards of appreciation for their support.
Randal Redner, the Society’s Vice President for Georgia, who accepted the check along with Anissa Johnson, the Society’s manager of Making Strides Against Breast Cancer in Atlanta, adds, “Siuprem has been an outstanding corporate partner with us for Making Strides Against Breast Cancer in Atlanta, and we’re very grateful for the company’s support. Siuprem’s employees and agents are determined to make a difference in the fight against breast cancer, and they are accomplishing that with their dedication. We’re looking very forward to continuing the partnership in 2013.”

We save lives by helping people stay well by preventing cancer or detecting it early; helping people get well by being there for them during and after a cancer diagnosis; by finding cures through investment in groundbreaking discovery; and by fighting back by rallying lawmakers to pass laws to defeat cancer and by rallying communities worldwide to join the fight. As the nation’s largest nongovernmental investor in cancer research, contributing more than $3.4 billion, we turn what we know about cancer into what we do. As a result, nearly 14 million people in America who have had cancer and countless more who have avoided it will be celebrating birthdays this year.
