Raymond Handlings Concepts Corporation (RHCC), a leading materials handling equipment supplier in Northern California and the Pacific Northwest, has opened its third annual "Pink Pallet Jack Project" online auction in support of Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
The auction is currently live on eBay and will remain open until 12 PM Pacific Time on Thursday October 27. All proceeds raised from this year's auction will benefit the Tina Fund in Greene, N.Y., and the HERS Breast Cancer Foundation in Fremont, Calif.

The pallet jack up for auction this year is Raymond's pink 8210 Electric Pallet Truck. According to company officials, it is ideal for retail store, wholesale delivery and food processing applications that require more precise maneuverability in tight and/or congested areas.
"Raymond Handling Concepts Corporation has received remarkable support for our annual Pink Pallet Jack Project in the previous two years from our employees, customers, partners and local communities," says Steve Raymond, president of RHCC, based in Auburn, Wash. "We are devoted not only as a market leader, but also as individual leaders within our communities, to continually advancing our efforts in the fight against breast cancer and the search for a cure."
RHCC began its fundraising efforts early this year with its first "Beat Breast Cancer" rummage sale held in August at its Auburn offices, where additional funds were raised for the Tina Fund and HERS Breast Cancer Foundation. Since 2014, RHCC has raised more than $109,000 for charity, a large portion of the amount coming from the Pink Pallet Jack Project.
In addition to the auction, RHCC is opening its Fremont, Calif., facility at 41400 Boyce Road to the public for an open house on Thursday Oct. 20 from 11 AM to 3 PM. There will be life music and a raffle for various prizes including a manual pallet jack. The company's partners, customers and neighbors are invited to attend, meet Steve Raymond and see the pink pallet jack.http://www.ebay.com/itm/-/172378267945
