Mathews Ford Oregon will host a Rally for the Cure Car Show Sunday, July 21.
Rally for the Cure is a grassroots effort that was created to raise awareness and help empower people to take action in the fight against breast cancer by educating women about the disease and the importance of annual breast cancer screenings.
More than 2 million people have participated in Rally events across the nation since its start in 1996. This year marks the second year Mathews Ford Oregon has participated in the Rally effort. In addition to mobilizing people behind the promise to end breast cancer, Rally events have generated over $70 million for Susan G. Komen for the Cure.
The day’s activities will run from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. In addition to prize and 50/50 raffles, there will be children’s activities, food and beverages available for purchase and each participant will receive a goody bag
“We are proud to open our facility and host a Rally for the Cure event. The event is a fun way for us to bring together our members and the community to support an important cause while supporting an event we are passionate about,” said John Becerra, sales manager.
”The success of Rally is attributed to volunteer ambassadors like Tim Mathews who have said ‘Yes we can have a Rally.’ It is their enthusiasm, energy and support we value in our commitment to support Susan G. Komen,” said Diane Perillo, Program Manager, Rally for the Cure.
