Rosenthal Acura was able to support and donate to a number of organizations throughout 2012.
This past summer, we donated to Joyce Robb’s One Star Enterprises. Ms. Robb’s organization is very active in Montgomery County and helps an array of local groups, from providing meals for mens’ shelters to her annual back-to-school event where she equips elementary students with necessary school supplies.
In August, we showcased the entirely-redesigned Acura RDX and the all-new ILX at the Crossfires of Maryland’s first car show at Linganore Winery. All proceeds from the event benefited the Northern Chesapeake Sheltie Rescue.
In September, we sent a 2013 Acura RDX to Montgomery Country Club as the “Hole-in-One” vehicle for the 8th Annual Tommy Joe’s – Jon Lowe Charity Invitational Golf Classic. Although no one won the vehicle, all proceeds from the event went to the American Diabetes Association and the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation.
We have also been able to donate to a number of organizations that are of significance to our employees, from Billy’s Bean Fundraiser and Bella Bethesda’s Hair to Heal Event to the Alliance for Lupus Research.
This past year, we gathered a team to participate in the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society’s Light the Night Walk in Rockville. Team “Drive Away Cancer” raised a total of $8,909. We raised funds in a number of ways. Our team members worked individually to raise funds for the organization. Clients generously donated to our team and signed paper balloons that we placed on the dealership walls. The dealership also donated to the team for each new and pre-owned vehicle sold for the month of September.
Throughout the year we also made donations to Children’s National Medical Center and the Fisher House Foundation. Our largest contribution went to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
It is because of our customers and their continued loyalty that we are able to support these local and national organizations. We give thanks to our clients by delivering on the exceptional service that they have come to expect and by giving back to the community.
