Coconis Furniture Raising Awareness

Local News

ZANESVILLE, Ohio – Every year, Coconis Furniture comes up with ways to raise breast cancer awareness during the month of October.

This year, they decided to make it a little more fun by setting up the Buckeye Cruise for Cancer drawing. Coconis Furniture teamed up with WHIZ Media Group to provide an all expense trip for two.

“Coconis worked with Simms and Serta, their big mattress vendors, to not only help out with the breast cancer awareness promotion, but also to purchase a trip for two on the Buckeye Cruise for Cancer. Which gave it a really nice twist, it gave people the incentive to go into Coconis and to pick out their breast cancer awareness bands,” said Tom Strock.

The winners of the drawing were chosen on Friday evening. The winners are Brent and Kelly Musselman. Coconis furniture had over a thousand customers register within the last month.

“The reason Coconis is so involved in this, anything we can do that could possibly impact one life or reach one person who might otherwise not have survived, if we can make a difference in one life because of this promotion it’s all worth while,” Strock added.

All of the proceeds from the Buckeye Cruise for Cancer will benefit the O-S-U James Cancer Hospital.
