Tropic Supply Announces Breast Cancer Awareness SELFIE Contest Winners
In October, Tropic Supply and Glasfloss asked contractors to join them in supporting Susan G. Komen® in their efforts to increase breast cancer awareness during the month and in their fight against the disease throughout the year. The Florida distributor and air filtration products manufacturer jointly donated $6,000 to Susan G. Komen® and asked contractors to help raise awareness by participating in their Breast Cancer Awareness SELFIE contest to win one of four Carhartt Tool Rolls.
“Our commitment to help bring awareness and find a cure for breast cancer began with a customer and friend who was diagnosed with the disease,” stated Nicole Parrish of Tropic. “One of our Resource Center leaders asked us to rally around the cause. Since that request, we have supported Susan G Komen’s mission of eradicating breast cancer as a life-threatening disease by advancing research, education, screening and treatment.”
Tropic Supply is committed to continue supporting Susan G Komen®, as many of their employees have been personally impacted by the disease and they want to do their share in finding a cure and helping those who suffer from Breast Cancer.
“We know many in the HVAC industry who were personally impacted either by having the cancer themselves or having a family member who had it and we want to continue to support them as well,” Nicole concluded.
Any contractor who purchased any two cases of Glasfloss filters on a single invoice received a free pink camo neck buff. Then to enter they emailed a selfie wearing the buff while featuring a Glasfloss filter to Tropic Supply. Next, they needed to “like” Tropic Supply’s Facebook page to be entered for that week’s drawing. Drawings were held on October 9th, 16th, 23rd and 30th.
Winning companies were All Temperature Service, Inc. of Southwest Ranches, Mechanical Comfort Services of St. Petersburg, Keep It Cool of Ocala and DC AC Air Conditioning of Tallahassee.
Tropic Supply began their annual involvement with Susan G. Komen® in 2014 and have had more than 225 contractors participate over the years with $42,000 in donations generated.

About Susan G Komen®
In 1980, Nancy G. Brinker promised her dying sister, Susan, that she would do everything in her power to end breast cancer forever. In 1982, that promise became the Susan G. Komen® organization and the beginning of a global movement. What was started with $200 and a shoebox full of potential donor names has now grown into the world’s largest nonprofit source of funding for the fight against breast cancer. To date, we’ve invested more than $2.9 billion in groundbreaking research, community health outreach, advocacy and programs in more than 60 countries. Our efforts helped reduce deaths from breast cancer by 40 percent between 1989-2016 and we won’t stop until our promise is fulfilled. For more information visit https://ww5.komen.org/.
