Preston Automotive Group of Delaware and Maryland Donates $38,500 to the American Cancer Society

As reported by Autobody News in October 2014, Preston Automotive Group (PAG) took a stand against Breast Cancer and each dealership and auto body shop became United for a Cure.

To support Breast Cancer Awareness Month, the campaign United for a Cure meant that each dealership would donate $50 per car sold to the American Cancer Society and each body shop would donate two percent total sales for the month. Preston Automotive Group has been a  supporter of Breast Cancer Awareness as it has affected many of their own employees and families. The Automotive Group was able to raise a total of $38,500 to the American Cancer Society towards the fight against Breast Cancer.

In addition to the making a donation to the American Cancer society, Preston Automotive Group employees wore “Pink” all month to show support and for the first time ever, Preston created a pink frog. Customers traditionally receive a green Preston frog with every vehicle purchase.

These vehicles were wrapped in pink to aide in Breast Cancer Awareness.

A 2014 Ford F-150 was also wrapped as this year’s Drive to Inspire vehicle. The Drive to Inspire campaign was with Comcast Spotlight and Saving Second Base and they raised $3,500 that was also donated to the American Cancer Society.
