Will you make the Drive for 65?
Whether it’s a brand new 2019 Ram 1500 everyone’s talking about or a summer-friendly Jeep Wrangler perfect for exploring the back country, if you purchase a new vehicle from O’Connor Chrysler this month, you’ll also be helping local families.
“For every car sold in June, O’Connor Chrysler is donating $100 to the BC Cancer Foundation,” explains the dealership’s Trenna Pennington.
The second annual Drive for 65 follows last summer’s inaugural fundraiser that launched to great success, and the O’Connor team aims to do even better this year, Pennington says.
“Cancer affects so many people. Everyone I know has lost someone to the disease, knows someone who is fighting cancer or has fought cancer themselves,” she says. “For us, it’s about giving back and helping people.”
July brings even more ways to give back – and have fun!
Following the month-long initiative, the dealership will present a cheque to the BC Cancer Foundation during the second annual O’Connor Car Show, coming up at the dealership on Sunday, July 21.
Register your wheels today to join in the fun, rolling on to the lot from 8:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.
More than just a show and shine of gorgeous vehicles, the car show is designed as a real family event, with kids’ activities, music and an on-site food truck as well.
Proceeds from that event will support Chilliwack’s Little Heroes Hockey Academy, which helps children with developmental delays participate in ice hockey.
“We’re a family business, and our team lives, works and plays right here in Chilliwack, so these local organizations and the families they support are so important to us,” Pennington notes.
“The community has supported us for so many years, we really want to give back.”
