Carousel Nissan Surpasses its Goal for Bras for the Cause Fundraiser

Carousel Nissan finished their fundraising event for Bras for the Cause by surpassing their goal of $8,000 ($5000 goal for Carousel Motors and $3000 goal for Carousel Nissan) and delivered a check for $8300 at the Bras for the Cause annual gala. Social Media Director for Carousel Motors, Rochelle Burnett, delivered the checks Saturday night to Event Chair, Marcia Munger. Marcia commented, “Carousel Motors and Carousel Nissan coming on board the last week in October was an unexpected delight and we had never imagined that it would be for such a significant amount. We look forward to helping women in the Iowa City area – and who knows, maybe this will spark the interest of Iowa City citizens to start the fundraising gala there. We believe our gala will have raised around $300,000 (we are still counting). Quite a significant amount when you know it takes $100 for a woman to get a mammogram.”

General Manager of Carousel, Pat Lind, shares “We felt good about our last week of sales and we were proud to be able to make such a contribution. Our sales staff knew that one car sale equaled one mammogram for a woman that might not be able to afford it – it makes you think differently about selling cars. It’s a good feeling knowing that we may help a woman detect breast cancer early. We look forward to more events like these.”
