Avadim gives back with National Service Day

Avadim Technologies Inc. (“Avadim”), the Bionome TherapiesTM life sciences company, today announced that the Avadim Technologies / Heath Shuler Golf Invitational was held at the Cliffs at Walnut Cove in North Carolina this week and raised over $125,000 for Eblen Charities.

Whether developing products aimed to improve health and enhance quality of life or helping communities through local and global philanthropy efforts, Avadim’s mission is to serve. And that is what Avadim means – “servant”— and it’s a responsibility that the company doesn’t take lightly. Avadim Technologies has created revolutionary topical therapies that work effectively while preserving the health of the skin. These therapies are already making a difference in a wide range of areas—from hospital-acquired conditions to muscle cramps and more—and they have the potential to address a multitude of conditions in the future.

This day also marked Avadim’s National Service Day for many of our employees that traveled across the country to serve as volunteers at the charitable event, in conjunction with a corporate educational seminar in Asheville and a tour of our manufacturing facilities.

The Avadim golf team was well represented by its President, David Fann (on the right) and Advisory Board member and investor Jim Rosati, who made traveled from Rhode Island to support our efforts.

Asheville, N.C.-based Eblen Charities and the Eblen Center for Social Enterprise has grown from a garage sale to an internationally recognized organization. The charity was formed in 1991 when philanthropist and former Biltmore Oil Company president Joe Eblen, recognizing an unaddressed need to aid struggling local families, organized a garage sale and raised $400. During its first full year of service in 1992, the organization reached 300 families. Eblen has more than 70 programs providing medical, utility, rent, clothing, food and emergency assistance. In all, Eblen provides millions of dollars in aid each year.

Bill Murdock, Chairman of Eblen Charities said, “We can’t begin to thank everyone at Avadim Technologies for their wonderful partnership and friendship these past years. Through our combined efforts tens of thousands of families have been able to breathe easier during difficult times. The new Avadim Technologies / Heath Shuler Fall Golf Invitational as Avadim’s signature event as a keystone of Eblen Charities and our outreach to the community. Together we will continue to grow and touch countless lives of those in times of need. The word “Avadim” means to serve and there is no better name for the company and those who are a part it. It is an honor to stand beside them and be part our their outreach and have them such a vital part of ours.”
