“Tara is always looking for events and ways to get our company involved in the community. I knew she would not hesitate in helping such a terrific cause,” said Hansen.
To raise money for the event, members of Polaris Development spent a Saturday speaking to the community and collecting donations for the cause. The group raised a total of $1,100 to help fight for a cure.
“It was amazing to see how giving and passionate our local community was even during such economic hardships as there are today. We exceeded our goal by over 400 percent and we did it in half the time,” explained Tara Masia, President of Polaris Development. “We are very excited that we were able to contribute to the ACS’s mission to help cancer patients celebrate more birthdays.”
This is just one of many ways Polaris Development plans to give back to the community as they expand. They have already volunteered with The Lupus Alliance Of America and Operation Smile and are already planning more fundraisers for the fall.

Support is provided in the form on giving money to research and spreading knowledge that is able to help advance efforts leading to a cure.
The Polaris Development team and President, Tara Masia, took initiative and volunteered to raise awareness about the disease in hopes of drawing more attention to the disease during Lupus Awareness Month in May.
“We feel it is important to spread awareness so that those who are affected by Lupus have more support and resources,” said President Tara Masia.
Since many members of the team at Polaris Development personally know someone with Lupus spreading awareness and raising money for this cause was especially important to them.
The team volunteered 6 hours of their time on a Saturday speaking with members of the community about the disease. The Lupus Alliance of America provided informative bookmarks for distribution and the team at Polaris Development took it upon themselves to create information sheets to add to the packet. The company not only raised money within the community, they made a donation of their own.
The money raised by Polaris Development will help to fund a lupus commercial aimed at raising awareness about the disease and how it affects people afflicted with it.
“At the end of the day, we felt excited and proud of our efforts,” Tara Masia said. “When walking door- to-door, each person on my team encountered either someone affected by Lupus or someone who had a friend or family member affected by the disease. A great amount of appreciation and gratitude was expressed to my team and me and that was the most rewarding part!”
This is just one of the ways Polaris Development, Inc. plans on giving back to the community. They plan to participate in Relay For Life to raise money and awareness for the American Cancer Society. The team has also joined with several other businesses in events aimed towards raising money for Operation Smile.
