Another fund drive done! Audi Cary teamed up with Leith Porsche in October to raise money for breast cancer awareness. To give extra pay-off for trying one of our excellent vehicles, both dealerships donated $10 for every service visit and $25 for every test drive during the month. These sums ended up totaling more than $18,000, which it was our pleasure to award this week.
Audi Cary and Leith Porsche worked with the Susan G. Komen foundation to make this happen, specifically the local North Carolina Triangle to the Coast branch. The NCTC has been serving 29 of North Carolina’s counties since it hosted its first race in 1997. With more than $15 million raised since then, we couldn’t think of a better partner for this issue.
NCTC’s executive director, Pam Kohl, was on hand to accept the oversized check on her organization’s behalf.
“We are thrilled that Audi Cary and Leith Porsche have chosen to partner with Komen NCTC,” Pam said. “The funds will help provide breast cancer services to underinsured and underserved women and families in our 29-county service area. We are grateful for Audi Cary and Leith Porsche’s support.”
We’re already looking ahead to the first race of 2015, the Race for the Cure in Wilmington on March 7. We highly recommend getting a team together and beginning training now; we all need things to occupy these winter days, and this is an excellent way to do so.
Visit the NCTC’s website for more information about ways to raise awareness about breast cancer, including a race that will happen right here in Raleigh (that’s next June). We’d love to see you out there, and your support will accomplish a world of good.
And if you helped make this week’s donation possible: thank you! We appreciate it more than we can say.
