Earlier this month Chemanius Legion Branch 191 was broken into, with money, tickets and other items stolen. In response, and in order to help this fantastic local organization, Victoria Hyundai on August 15 held a dunk a salesperson event and BBQ at the store, for a $5 minimum donation per throw, guests got a chance to sink the salesperson of their choice. We managed to raise almost $1000, and the dealership matched all donations for a just under $2000 helping hand to get the legion back up onto its feet as soon as possible. Pictured here is Macon Doublet, General Sales Manager, about to take the plunge
Macon also received accolades from the Department of National Defense and Canadian Forces Base Esquimalt:
The Government of Canada Workplace Charitable Campaign at Canadian Forces Base Esquimalt was again a great success, raising over $707,000 in contributions and helping the United Way of Greater Victoria and Health partners raise a total of 5.9 million dollars.We're proud to be giving this car to one lucky member of our Canadian Forces.
Our continuing success would not be possible without the kind support of business such as yours.
On behalf of the Government of Canada Workplace Charitable Campaign and the members of your local Defence Team, I thank you again for your continued support and your generous donations. Craig A. Baines
