Greenville, N.C. – April 13, 2012— Greenville Toyota has announced that it is once again donating a car to be raffled off as a fundraiser for the American Cancer Society. A 2012 Toyota Scion XB will be given away to one lucky winner on July 13, 2012, in a noon drawing at the dealership. To create attention for the fundraiser, Signs Now of Greenville has wrapped the car in colorful Relay For Life signage. Tickets for a chance to win are $5 each and can be purchased through the American Cancer Society by calling 866-227-8837. Additional information is available at myrelayforlife.org.
“This is a wonderful opportunity to raise awareness about the work of the American Cancer Society along with much needed funds that support our critical work in the community,” said Teresa Lassiter, area executive director for the American Cancer Society Greenville office. “We’re very thankful for the support of Greenville Toyota and Signs Now. Without them, this could not be possible.”
This is the second year of the car giveaway. Greenville resident Ron Snyder was the lucky winner in 2011, through which approximately $30,000 was raised to support the fight against cancer.
About the American Cancer Society
The American Cancer Society combines an unyielding passion with nearly a century of experience to save lives and end suffering from cancer. As a global grassroots force of more than three million volunteers, we fight for every birthday threatened by every cancer in every community. We save lives by helping people stay well by preventing cancer or detecting it early; helping people get well by being there for them during and after a cancer diagnosis; by finding cures through investment in groundbreaking discovery; and by fighting back by rallying lawmakers to pass laws to defeat cancer and by rallying communities worldwide to join the fight. As the nation’s largest non-governmental investor in cancer research, contributing about $3.4 billion, we turn what we know about cancer into what we do. As a result, more than 11 million people inAmericawho have had cancer and countless more who have avoided it will be celebrating birthdays this year.
