Thanks to Holmgren Subaru, in Franklin , CT, Subaru was able to donate $250 for every new vehicle sold earlier this year; resulting in an incredibly generous gift to SU4C.
“Don’t lose sight of the fact that the Holmgren team educated their customers about Sails Up, customers have a variety of options as far as where the donations go… Wounded Warrior Project, ASPCA and many other national charities but Holmgren believes in Sails Up and wanted to see the gift stay local,” explained Ken Scanzio, Subaru District Sales Manager.
Bob Davis, CEO of SU4C has partnered with the Holmgren team for numerous years on a variety of projects. “Bob has become a personal friend and he is passionate about Sails Up, it is impossible not to get involved and be supportive when the leader is someone who has not only survived cancer but works incredibly hard to raise funds for future research. I am proud to be a part of such a great organization,” said Eric Holmgren.
“No one plans to get cancer; and everyone is affected by it,” said Scanzio. “Subaru is proud to give to an organization helping people suffering from cancer.”
SU4C is a non profit organization dedicated to funding research in the education, prevention and cure for all types of cancer through the art and enjoyment of sailing. To fulfill these goals, SU4C partners with local yacht clubs, sailing clubs and other like-minded organizations to host regattas. The aim is to have these regattas appeal to everyone and not just the racing enthusiast.
