Little Red Door Cancer Agency accepted the proceeds Wednesday from a benefit event hosted last year by RJE Business Interiors, a full-service furniture and design company located in Downtown Indianapolis.

RJE Check.jpgRJE held its inaugural "Red Event" in October to benefit Little Red Door, a non-profit dedicated to supporting Central Indiana cancer patients. The event featured the work of artisans within the design industry, and 10 percent of all sales - roughly $3,000 - were donated to Little Red Door.

"We serve thousands of cancer clients each year who need transportation services, screening and detection, breast forms and bras, wigs, and a host of other services we offer," said Mary Beth Tuohy, executive director of Little Red Door Cancer Agency. "We are truly grateful for RJE's contribution that will help our clients who lack insurance, financial means and support."

RJE president Denny Sponsel said his company is proud to partner with organizations such as Little Red Door to make Indianapolis a stronger, more vibrant community.

"Whenever we have an opportunity to be a good corporate citizen and help those in need, we do whatever we can," Sponsel said. "I truly believe that we have a moral obligation to give back to this community, especially during such difficult economic times."

Sponsel said RJE plans to make the "Red Event" an annual occurrence.
