Press release   •   Apr 29, 2013 11:02 EDT

PARKERSBURG, W. VA. – On Saturday, May 4, 2013, Simonton Windows will host the 12th annual window and door auction to benefit the American Cancer Society. During the past 11 years the yearly charity fundraiser has generated more than $364,000 for the Relay for Life® fundraising efforts in Ritchie County, West Virginia.

Starting at 9:00am on May 4th homeowners, builders and remodelers can view the Simonton windows and patio doors at the Simonton manufacturing facility on Route 50 in Ellenboro. A very large selection of new windows and doors, along with skids (40 sheets per skid in black and white colors) of foam board for trimming and finish work will be available at the “cash and carry” auction that begins at 10:00am that day.

“This yearly event is a tremendous way for people to purchase top-quality, energy-efficient Simonton products at a fraction of their market price,” says Dave Meeks, co-organizer of the event and a dispatcher/scheduler at Simonton Windows. “These are brand new, high-quality products. We’ll have an assortment of new windows, patio doors and bay windows available at the auction along with the trim board supplied by SimEx.

“We generated more than $34,000 for the American Cancer Society at our auction in 2012 and hope to do as well this year. Whether you need one replacement window for a home or a dozen, this is a great opportunity to purchase your windows and patio doors and trim products while supporting the American Cancer Society.”

The Simonton and SimEx Relay for Life team members and volunteers will again offer refreshments for sale to further raise funds.

“We encourage folks to bring their exact measurements for the windows and doors they need and arrive between 9:00am and 10:00am to view the entire selection of products available,” says Meeks. “We’ll again have auctioneers Edgar Duelley and Mike Nichols starting the auction promptly at 10:00am.

The rain-or-shine event will feature both Simonton new construction and replacement windows and doors. All items are sold “as is” with no warranty.

Cash and checks (made payable to the American Cancer Society) are accepted on the day of the sale, and all purchased items must be removed the day of the sale.
