LBX donates proceeds from auction to Yes, Mamm! Program

LBX Company has presented the Saint Joseph Hospital Foundation's Yes, Mamm! Program with a check for $72,500. Yes, Mamm! provides services and assistance to breast cancer patients and survivors in Kentucky. 

The check represented 50% of the proceeds received from a charity auction of a 15.2 metric ton 145 X4 Link-Belt hydraulic excavator, held earlier this year in Las Vegas, Nevada. A second check for $72,500 will be presented to the Susan G. Komen Foundation.

Jay Shafer of Shafer Equipment Company, Sparks, NV placed the winning bid of $145,000 to claim the machine on March 12, 2020, during the CONEXPO-CON/AGG construction equipment show in Las Vegas, NV.

Every three years, LBX paints a hydraulic excavator pink for breast cancer awareness, then displays the machine, fondly referred to as "Pink-Belt," at LBX dealers across the country. Pink-Belt is then auctioned off at CONEXPO-CON/AGG to raise money for local breast cancer organizations. This is the second time Yes, Mamm! has been a beneficiary of the auction.

"We are so grateful for this donation from LBX, which will help us continue to provide free mammography screening, diagnostic services, and program support to uninsured and underinsured women and men in Kentucky," said Leslie Smart, CFRE, president, Saint Joseph Hospital Foundation. "We are proud to team up each year to raise awareness about breast cancer in our community and cannot thank LBX enough for their ongoing efforts."

Over the past seven years, the Saint Joseph Hospital Foundation's Yes, Mamm! Program has raised nearly $630,000 to provide more than 3,000 mammograms, 700 diagnostic services, 500 ultrasounds and approximately $5,000 in transportation assistance for patients. The Yes, Mamm! Program also helps support lifesaving equipment for patients and supplies such as lymphedema sleeves, wigs, chemo caps, patient counseling and education.

LOAD 60 TONS IN JUST FOUR PASSES WITH VOLVO

A bottleneck of haulers waiting to be loaded is inefficient. Idle machines burn unnecessary fuel, increase maintenance costs and decrease resale values when you're ready to trade them in.     

When you pair the new Volvo EC950F crawler excavator and A60H articulated hauler, you can load trucks faster. The EC950F can utilize a 10-yard bucket to fill a 60-ton capacity A60H in only four passes — reducing passes lowers fuel consumption and drastically speeds up cycle times to keep your haulers moving. See how the massive EC950F and A60H improve cycle times and more to boost your profitability.
