Callari Auto Group to sponsor The ALS Association Connecticut Chapter Walk on October 26 in Westport

Westport CT (PRWEB) August 27, 2014

On Tuesday, August 26th , Volvo of Westport, 556 Post Rd E, Westport, CT 06880, owned by Callari Auto Group, participated in the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge, and for good reason. Not only did the Volvo of Westport dealership participate in this challenge, they went Beyond the Bucket by donating a 5 year lease of a 2014 Volvo to The ALS Association Connecticut Chapter. This cause hits close to home as a two people a family member, and the father of one of their staff members, have recently been diagnosed with ALS.

With the Ice Bucket Challenge getting so much traction on Facebook, The ALS Association is getting a wonderful amount of attention and donations and Volvo of Westport wanted not only to participate, but to step up and do something extra and go beyond the bucket challenge to help the cause. We will be donating a 2014 Volvo S80 to The ALS Association Connecticut Chapter, said George Santangelo, Marketing Director at Callari Auto Group.

"We are blown away by the generous donation of an S80 Volvo from Volvo of Westport and Callari Auto Group's support of our mission and the Walk on October 26 in Westport. The car will enable us to deliver our mission around Connecticut while saving us roughly $10,000. This opportunity will allow the Chapter to expand our outreach, visibility, and our services in a cost-effective and safe manner. The ALS Association Connecticut Chapter is so grateful to Westport Volvo and Callari Auto Group for going above and beyond in partnering in the fight against ALS. Together, we are all helping improve the lives of the patients and families living with ALS in our community., said Mike Burke, Executive Director of The ALS Association Connecticut Chapter.
