A Pink Presentation


A Pink Presentation: Thanks to our community for requesting Metro’s Pink
Ride! Here Bill Scalzi, Metro Taxi president, presents Anne Morris,
executive director of Susan G. Komen for the Cure in Hartford, with a
check representing a $1 company donation for each fare driven in its
pink taxi — $1,052 for the month of October. The fundraiser was part of
the first international “Pink Ride” effort spearheaded by the Taxicab,
Limousine & Paratransit Association, a global association
representing more than 1,000 members.
