Mattress and pillow manufacturer Tempur-Pedic International presented its annual donation—a check for $200,000—to the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network during the Las Vegas Market Jan. 28-Feb 1. Tempur-Pedic is a longtime supporter of the organization, which funds and promotes research, patient support, community outreach and advocacy for a cure. To date, the company has given more than $1.25 million and helped fund four research grants.
The mattress maker included an additional donation of $12,500 in its most recent check to the cancer network, which was made on behalf of the first 250 Tempur-Pedic Rest Test participants at the Las Vegas Market.
“Through our ongoing Tempur-Pedic Hugs Back campaign, we’ve enjoyed the privilege of working with the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network for many years,” said Rick Anderson, Tempur-Pedic North America president. “In 2013, we remain dedicated to supporting the network and plan to continue bolstering it in any way possible by working with our retailers and our organization, starting with this donation at the Las Vegas Market trade show.”
