Raymond Handling Concepts Corporation (RHCC), a leading materials handling equipment supplier in Northern California and the Northwest, offers its fourth annual Pink Pallet Jack Project online auction in support of Breast Cancer Awareness Month from Oct. 17 to 27 on eBay.

In addition to the auction, which has raised $120,000 over the last three years, the company hosts a 30th anniversary event at the Auburn corporate office on Wednesday, Oct. 25, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. All proceeds raised will be donated to the Tina Fund in Greene, New York and Northwest Hope and Healing.

“Raymond Handling is proud to mark this annual event this year with our 30th anniversary,” said Raymond Handling founder and president, Steve Raymond. “Our dedication to our community and employees is underscored by our passion for raising awareness for breast cancer and making contributions that count. We look forward to this years’ auction and live event.”

Anniversary event

The open house style event is at the company’s headquarters at 3500 W. Valley Highway N., Suite 101, and will feature hors d’oeuvres, raffle prizes, live music and a presentation by company leadership. Raymond Handling invites all of its customers and neighbors to come join in the fun, and help raise additional funds for these worthy charities that support families during breast cancer diagnosis and recovery.

Online auction

For those that can’t attend the event in person, the 10 day auction is 6 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 17 on eBay, where participants can bid on Raymond’s pink 8210 Electric Pallet Truck. This particular model is ideal for retail store, wholesale delivery and food processing applications that require navigation in tight and/or congested areas. It also features Raymond’s Click2Creep design, which overrides the upper brake position and automatically slows the travel speed, enabling improved maneuverability and more controlled operation.

The Pink Pallet Jack Project was initiated in 2014 by Steve Raymond and former RHCC executive Simon Walker when the duo was invited by local Greene, N.Y., resident Shelly Howell to participate in a charity event benefiting the Tina Fund, a fund that Howell created in honor of her sister Tina Turner, who lost her battle with breast cancer in 2011.
