Blossman Gas Invites Bedford Community to Summer Open House Supporting the Walk to End Alzheimer’s

June 13, 2018 – Bedford, VA

Bedford Summer Open House on Friday, June 29th from 8am to 7pm, and Saturday, June 30th from 10am to 3pm at their store located at 1088 Moneta Road, Bedford. This event is focused on raising awareness and funds for “Team Gigi” at Lynchburg’s Walk to End Alzheimer’s. The leader of Team Gigi, Jon Arnold, is a longtime Blossman Gas customer who lost his wife to the disease three years ago. Since that time, Jon, along with his twin daughters and son-in-law, have become very active in raising money to fund Alzheimer’s research. Blossman Gas is supporting Team Gigi this year by raffling off a Broil King Grill valued at $399. Raffle tickets are $10 each and the winner will be announced at the close of the Summer Open House: 3pm on Saturday, June 30th. There is also a motorcycle ride-in on Saturday, June 30th to the Bedford Blossman Store in support of Team Gigi.

Tony Franko, Blossman Branch Manager, says, “We feel privileged to join other members of our community in supporting Team Gigi. So many people are affected by Alzheimer’s, a truly devastating disease, and we want to contribute to those working hard to find a solution. I’ve enjoyed getting to know Jon Arnold over the last few years, and admire the work he is doing personally to make a difference.”

Jon Arnold, leader of Team Gigi, shares, “Tony has gone above and beyond in helping me with a gas log set upgrade in my home. This Summer Open House is just another way that shows how much he and his team care about our community, and helping customers experience the comfort Blossman seeks to provide in everything they do.”

In addition to the fundraising efforts, the community is invited to the Bedford Summer Open House to enjoy a free cookout, discounts on grills, $5 grill cylinder fills (call store for details) and other great promotions throughout the store.
