Earlier this month, our own Jeff Chastain, attended a press conference where E.C. Barton & Company was recognized for their sponsorship of the inaugural event. In combination with other events throughout Arkansas, just over $1 million in grant money was announced to healthcare organizations all around the state. These grants fund treatment for breast cancer. Last year's Jonesboro event, for which Barton's and Surplus Warehouse served as presenting sponsors, contributed more than $400,000 to the Foundation. The company will also be the presenting sponsor for the 2018 event, scheduled for April 28th, 2018 on the campus of Arkansas State University.
