On June 16-17, employees at Gershow Recycling and members of "Patsy’s Gang” took part in the American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life at Sayville Middle School. Gershow donated $2,500 in joining Patsy’s Gang to raise over $7,000 to support the fight against cancer. Relay for Life celebrates the lives of those who have battled cancer, and remembers those loved ones lost to the deadly disease.

In addition to the company’s generous donation, Gershow Recycling sponsored the relay and donated a Dumpster for the event. The company also gave out its activity books to the children at the event.

Patsy’s Gang is comprised of Gershow employee Rich Ruoff, his father-in-law Joe LePage and Mr. LePage’s two daughters, Mary Bertuccio, whose husband Peter manages Gershow’s Bay Shore facility, and Patricia Ruoff, Mr. Ruoff’s wife. The group is named in honor of Mr. LePage’s wife, Patsy, who passed away five years ago from cancer. Patsy’s Gang was the only Platinum team to participate in the two-day event.
