Press release   •   May 01, 2014 14:07 EDT

PARKERSBURG, W. VA. – On Saturday, May 10, 2014, Simonton Windows will host the 13th annual window and door auction to benefit the American Cancer Society. During the past 12 years the yearly charity fundraiser has generated more than $405,000 for the Relay for Life® fundraising efforts in Ritchie and Pleasant counties in West Virginia.

Starting at 10:00am on May 10th homeowners, builders and remodelers can view the Simonton windows and patio doors at the Simonton manufacturing facility on Route 50 in Ellenboro. Hundreds of new windows and doors (including a selection of specialty garden windows), along with Therma-Tru doors will be available at the “cash and carry” auction that begins at 11:00am that day. As a bonus, Cardinal Logistics has donated four tickets to a Bank of America 500 NASCAR Race in Charlotte, N.C. that will also be auctioned off for charity.

“This yearly event is a tremendous way for people to purchase top-quality, energy-efficient 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 garden windows available at the auction along with a multitude of doors from Therma-Tru.

“We generated more than $41,000 for the American Cancer Society at our auction in 2013 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 windows and doors while supporting the American Cancer Society.”

The Simonton 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 10:00am and 11:00am to view the entire selection of products available,” says Meeks. “I expect some Simonton windows will be available starting as low as $10 each, with an average expected auction price of between $40 to $50 each. Patio doors are expected to sell for between $100 and $175 each. These are tremendous deals for top-quality products and the purchases benefit the American Cancer Society.”

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. The purchases help support the ongoing fundraising efforts of the Ritchie and Pleasants County chapters of the American Cancer Society. A portion of the purchases may be tax deductible, and auction winners should consult their tax or legal advisor for details.*
