FANWOOD, NJ — Shovlin Mattress Factory, a family-owned business in downtown Fanwood, has donated $3,100 to Play For P.I.N.K. to help fight breast cancer.

This was the second year in a row that the small business has donated five percent of sales of its high-end Nirvana mattresses from the month of October (Breast Cancer Awareness Month) to the local event, which raises money for the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.

“Thank you to all of our loyal customers who made this possible,” said Ron Shovlin, who owns Shovlin Mattress Factory with his wife, Kara. “It is very important that we continue to give back and help find a cure.”
