Little Red Door Cancer Agency accepts "Red Event" proceeds

RJE Business Interiors gives funds to help Central Indiana cancer patients


INDIANAPOLIS - Little Red Door Cancer Agency today accepted the proceeds from a benefit event hosted last year by RJE Business Interiors, a full-service furniture and design company located in Downtown Indianapolis.
RJE held its inaugural "Red Event" in October to benefit Little Red Door, a non-profit dedicated to supporting Central Indiana cancer patients. The event featured the work of artisans within the design industry, and 10 percent of all sales - roughly $3,000 - were donated to Little Red Door.
"We serve thousands of cancer clients each year who need transportation services, screening and detection, breast forms and bras, wigs, and a host of other services we offer," said Mary Beth Tuohy, executive director of Little Red Door Cancer Agency. "We are truly grateful for RJE's contribution that will help our clients who lack insurance, financial means and support."
RJE president Denny Sponsel said his company is proud to partner with organizations such as Little Red Door to make Indianapolis a stronger, more vibrant community.
"Whenever we have an opportunity to be a good corporate citizen and help those in need, we do whatever we can," Sponsel said. "I truly believe that we have a moral obligation to give back to this community, especially during such difficult economic times."
Sponsel said RJE plans to make the "Red Event" an annual occurrence.
RJE Business Interiors is located Downtown near the largest concentration of offices in Indianapolis. The firm not only offers a large variety of fine office furniture by major name-brand manufacturers, but also provides complete design and restoration services. More than anything, RJE prides itself on community and civic involvement at every level. Find out more about RJE/Knoll on the Web at www.rjefurn.com or by calling (317) 293-4051.
Little Red Door Cancer Agency strives to make the most of life and the least of cancer, by reducing the physical, emotional, and financial burdens of cancer for the medically underserved residents of Central Indiana. For more than six decades, the agency has provided education, screening and detection, and patient services to those who lack financial means and adequate insurance.
