Ace Parking Unveils PARK FOR PINK Campaign
San Diego, CA – Ace Parking is showing their commitment to the community with a new campaign, PARK FOR PINK. The basis for the campaign is to raise awareness, generate funds and motivate the community to fight cancer. A portion of parking proceeds will be donated to the Susan G. Komen Foundation and The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. Ace will donate up to $20,000 each year through this program.

Jones went on to say, ““Now, having three years to reflect on this transformational event, and having endured the trial together with my resilient and beautiful wife, we have tremendous compassion and empathy for those who continue to fight this battle. I am thrilled to have my family business Ace Parking be a platform for supporting those who are suffering from this disease, and assist those who will one day find a cure.”
