Very few opportunities come along where one can smash and destroy something for a great cause such as a finding a cure for breast cancer. When Cachet and Payroll Tax Management Client Liaison Windy Jones approached SBS Payroll with the opportunity to join her first-ever, all-girl Demolition Derby team that she coined as the “Damsels of Destruction” benefiting the O.C.
Affiliate of the Susan G. Komen Foundation, Director of Payroll Operations Leigh Hansen and Account Executive/ Payroll Tax Specialist Jeanette Aguirre jumped at the chance. Leigh’s mother is a breast cancer survivor and Jeanette’s grandmother was recently diagnosed with breast cancer, so both ladies were up for the challenge and wanted to show their support for their loved ones and everyone affected by the disease.
With SBS sponsoring Leigh and Jeanette, the ladies worked fiercely to prepare for the derby, which took place Friday, August 10, 2012 at the O.C. Fairgrounds’ Action Sports Arena. The event was an epic success as it was sold out with 5,000 in attendance, nearly $6,000 were raised for the O.C. Affiliate of the Susan G. Komen Foundation, and SBS Account Executive Jeanette Aguirre was featured in an O.C. Weekly article! The ladies had a blast and many have said they would love to participate in the derby again next year if one will be organized. Special thanks to Windy Jones for planning and coordinating such a phenomenal event!
