Making An Impact On The Fight To End Cancer
Featuring Impact Cleaning Services

The Fight to End Cancer gala could not happen without awesome community support.  Our 2019 Gala will mark our first year partnering with Impact Cleaning Services, and we are delighted to have them on board.  George Boutsalis will be representing the family business, as he steps in the ring as our 2019 Fight To End Cancer Main Event!  His commitment and the support of the company to the cause speaks volumes about their desire to make a difference.  In their own words:

“Impact Cleaning Services is thrilled to be part of this year’s Fight to End Cancer and offer our support in the goal to defeat cancer. We are blown away by the monumental strides Jennifer, Virgil and the FTEC team has made to support The Princess Margaret Cancer Foundation. We can’t wait to see what they will accomplish in the years to come.

We spend a third of our lives at work. As a cleaning company, our focus is on keeping the spaces we clean dust-free and sanitary, to help prevent the spread of illness. Our goal is to empower people to create a cleaner future by changing the way cleaning and facility services are delivered by bringing safe, sustainable and innovative solutions to all environments.

We are so proud of George for joining the fight. His passion and dedication to training and fundraising are a shining example of his personality as well as Impact’s core values and commitment to always striving for better. We couldn’t think of a better person to represent our company in the ring.”
