Sails Up 4 Cancer is proud to part of the Subaru America Share the Love campaign in conjunction with Holmgren Subaru, 3 New Park Ave, N. Franklin, CT.
This year, sharing the love is more important than ever.
Over the last 14 years, the Subaru Share the Love Event, Subaru of America Inc. & its participating retailers have donated more than $227 million to charity, with customers choosing between four national charities and over 1,700 hometown charities. Subaru will donate $250 for every new Subaru vehicle sold or leased from November 17, 2022 through January 3, 2023, to the purchaser’s choice of four national charities designated by the purchaser: ASPCA®, Make-A-Wish Foundation of America®, Meals On Wheels Association of America®, and the National Park Foundation, and at certain participating retailers, purchasers have an additional choice of a Hometown Charity (“Subaru Donation”).
SU4C, founded in 2011, is a 501(c)3 non profit corporation based in Mystic. Over the years SU4C has donated over $250,000 to a variety of research centers, hospitals, hospice care, and individuals dealing with all types of cancer.
“Don’t lose sight of the fact that the Holmgren team has educated their customers about Sails Up. Customers have a variety of options as far as where the donations go but has chosen Sails Up 4 Cancer to keep their gift local within the community and supports the Sails Up mission,” 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 been 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 two cancers but works incredibly hard to raise funds for future research and individual cancer care. 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.”
