We are excited to announce that EJGH has won two national awards in the Pink Glove Video Contest. Among a menu of songs given to us by The Pink Glove Organization, EJGH chose “Rise Up” by the band Green River Ordinance who subsequently chose our video as the recipient of the Artist’s Choice Award. We also won Largest Donation for Breast Cancer Research Award with a contribution of $18,668.02 to our charity of choice - the American Cancer Society for Cancer Research!
These are truly amazing honors that all of us should be proud of, especially those who took part in the video and contributed to our fundraising efforts.
Below is the congratulatory message from Medline Industries, sponsors of the Pink Glove Video Contest. As you will read, we will be receiving formal notification and will share more information and details as we get it.
