At RP Signs we do our best to give back to worthy causes in the community whenever possible. Here are a few events we have been involved with so far this year:
- On June 1, 2011 we donated to the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer. We have been involved with this for the last two years.
- On June 6, 2011 Jamie Neely (CEO) and Joey Neely (Project Manager) participated in a fundraiser organized by Carolinas HealthCare Foundation for the 6th Annual Save Your Skin Melanoma Awareness Golf Classic at Ballantyne Resort. Also joining them were Bobby Speakman and Ryan Baar from Carolinas HealthCare System. RP Signs has been involved with this tournament for several years, donating all of the event signage. What a great way to raise awareness about skin cancer.
- We donated three thousand 2” adhesive circles to Classroom Central who provide free school supplies to the children of the Charlotte-Mecklenburg School System
RP Signs will be a drop off location for the 15th Annual School Tools Campaign for Classroom Central. Stay tuned for more details.

- RP Signs donated signs for “Stiletto Sprint” held on April 9, 2011 that raised money for the fight against ovarian cancer. This event was sponsored by Carolinas HealthCare Foundation, Carolinas Medical Center and the Blumenthal Cancer Center. It was held in Symphony Park at SouthPark.
- On April 18, 2011, Josh Strecker (Sr. Project Manager) and Lucas Chamberlayne (Project Coordinator) participated in the Presbyterian Hemby Children’s Hospital Golf Classic at Carmel Country Club. They teamed up with Dr. Mark Mogul of Presbyterian Hospital’s Cancer Center and Don Jonas, Vice President and Executive Director of the Presbyterian Healthcare Foundation. Even though they did not bring home a trophy they had a great time supporting this worthy cause. As in years past RP again donated all of the event signage and we look forward to many more years of partnering with the Hemby Children’s Hospital.
