SPRINGFIELD, Va. — Greater Washington home improvement contractor Exterior Medics was a proud sponsor of Chance for Life — Washington D.C.'s "Party With a Purpose" that raises money to combat childhood cancer.

"This is a cause that's very close to our hearts," said Joe LeVecchi, co-owner of Exterior Medics. "We are honored to take part in such an important event, as we have for the past 7 years."

Chance for Life took place this year on March 9.

The event itself was designed to be different from the start — it's a part-charity, part-concert, part-gourmet food tasting event that stands out in a city with numerous causes and galas. To date, they have raised over $4.6 million, with 100 percent of all net proceeds going directly to fund cancer research at Children's National Hospital System and to support Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation.

This year, Exterior Medics was able to donate $15,000 to help bolster the success of the event.

"What we love about Chance for Life is knowing that the majority of the money goes directly to the organizations that need it," said Mark Watson, co-owner of Exterior Medics. "They really differentiate themselves from other charitable organizations."
