Plaza Home Mortgage and Susan G. Komen Kick Off October’s Breast Cancer Awareness Month With Free Mammograms for Underserved Women Throughout California

Plaza to sponsor free mammograms the first week of October in
San Diego, San Jose and Orange County

Home Mortgage, Inc.
is providing free mammograms to underserved
women in four California communities the first week of October with
money raised during its annual campaign to support Susan G. Komen. To
help kick off Breast Cancer Awareness Month, free mammogram events will
be held in San Diego, San Jose and Orange County. Individuals who are
underinsured or uninsured are encouraged to obtain breast cancer
screenings at these events. (Editors: Please see location, dates
and times below.)

“Countless Plaza associates, clients and friends have been affected by
breast cancer. We have lost people close to us and watched others
struggle to fight the disease,” said Kevin Parra, President and CEO,
Plaza Home Mortgage. “We support Susan G. Komen each year as our primary
philanthropic activity because the need to find a cure for breast cancer
and support those who suffer from it is so great.”

For the third year in a row, Plaza Home Mortgage will make a donation
based on October loan volume to Susan G. Komen in support of Breast
Cancer Awareness Month. Since the beginning of this partnership, Plaza
has donated nearly $250,000 to Susan G. Komen and this year will be
contributing $73,065 based on 2014 mortgage sales. The donations are a
result of the extraordinary efforts of Plaza associates and clients
nationwide. In addition to the corporate donation, Plaza employees
throughout the nation host bake sales, knit scarves, lift weights, walk,
race and look pretty in pink to raise awareness for breast cancer.

“Susan G. Komen is especially thankful to Plaza Home Mortgage,” said
Laura Farmer Sherman, president & CEO, Susan G. Komen San Diego. “It is
because of gracious corporate sponsors like Plaza that we can support
underserved women who cannot afford screening and follow-up services,
even if they have insurance.”

Plaza Home Mortgage’s donation helps Susan G. Komen provide free
services during every step of the breast cancer journey, including
education, outreach, free mammograms, financial assistance for living
expenses, food assistance, transportation and more. This donation also
helps fund the largest investment in breast cancer research in the world
next to the U.S. government. For more information on Susan G. Komen
