Dealership seeks donations for cancer fight

Publish date:

Sarah Moulton-Mullen, of Riverfront Marine Sports in Salisbury, Mass., created a page on the dealership Web site to accept donations and sell tickets to a fund-raiser for a close friend fighting breast cancer.

"Party Like A Survivor," a fund-raiser for Jennifer Small, is scheduled for Nov. 13 in Hampton, N.H.

"Jennie and I have been best friends since the eighth grade. Over the years she has become more of a sister than a friend," Moulton-Mullen said in a statement. "I was there when her first child was born, and when the news of her cancer was delivered. A very simple story really, a childhood friendship that has remained into adulthood."

Moulton-Mullen asked one of her distributors, Eddie Winder of Win-Tron Electronics, for help with the fund-raising party, and the event features a silent auction with products provided by leading manufacturers including Raymarine, Standard Communications, Garmin, Intellian and Lowrance.

A portion of the proceeds from the fund-raiser for Jennie Small will be donated to cancer research.
