We know that breast cancer hits close to everyone’s home. In fact, one in eight women will be diagnosed in their lifetime. And until that number gets to zero, City Furniture will be leading the fight to spread awareness and raise funds.
How We Fight
A big part of that effort is an annual campaign every October that involves the entire company. From our delivery technicians wearing pink polos to our corporate departments hosting a variety of fundraisers, all hands are on deck to make an impact.
It all leads up to the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walk in Fort Lauderdale on October 26. Once again, City Furniture is both a united team and a corporate sponsor, with every penny raised going towards the American Cancer Society. And this year, we’re matching every dollar with up to a $25,000 match.
The Pink Truck
Another part of our annual campaign is the City Furniture Pink Truck. Throughout the month of October, it will tour City Furniture and Ashley Furniture showrooms across Florida. Designed to spread breast cancer awareness, we’re inviting everyone in the community to sign the truck with the name of a loved one they wish to honor. See below for the schedule:

In Loving Memory
Everything we do is in honor of Doreen Koenig, late wife to our founder Keith Koenig, and honorary mother to our entire company. Doreen spent her life helping others, even when she was diagnosed breast cancer herself. Her strength and philanthropy is her legacy, and she has inspired all of us to take action, both with breast cancer and through City’s 5% Giving Pledge as a whole.
About City’s 5% Giving Pledge
Our community has rewarded us with success, and in turn, we thank them by giving back 5% of our annual profits. The donations are shared between five main pillars, including our health pillar, in which we support critical causes like breast cancer. Learn more here.
