Jerry V, Hawaii’s dealer for the people, is committed to giving back to the community in any way he can. Since 1984, Jerry V and his team choose an organization to support each year, and this year is Susan G. Komen. “The reason we went with Susan G. Komen was personal. There was a couple of employees of ours that actually were affected with breast cancer, and too many of their family was affected,” says Jerry.
For every car sold in the month of October, $25 will be donated to Susan G. Komen. They also help to raise funds at the dealerships! Windward Auto’s HR Director Eugene Kaneshiro makes spam musubis to sell to the customers, and have donations jars that the employees match for each customer donation. Their goal is to raise $5,000 to support the fight against breast cancer. Jerry V says even the smallest donation adds up, and any amount helps the cause greatly.
“Susan G. Komen is such a great organization. They’re not only helping people with breast cancer, and helping the research, they are actually helping them through the whole process,” says Jerry. So, if you’re in the market for a new vehicle, head down to Windward Auto or Jerry Vs Honolulu Preowned to purchase your vehicle and support a great cause!
