Porsche Walnut Creek Hosts 2023 Drive for a Cause

October 1st, 2023 by

Updated November 2023. The results are in. Porsche Walnut Creek, alongside our sister stores Audi Fremont, Fletcher Jones Motorcars of Fremont, and Porsche Fremont, raised $6,525 to donate to Susan G. Komen® communities in California. Thank you for Driving for a Cause.

Approximately 281,000 new cases of breast cancer will be diagnosed in the U.S. this year, and more than 44,000 people in the U.S. will die from the disease. In fact, 1 in 8 women in the U.S. will be diagnosed with breast cancer in her lifetime.

October is National Breast Cancer Awareness month and Fletcher Jones Auto Group is dedicated to supporting Susan G. Komen®, the world’s largest breast cancer organization. Our mission is to raise funds that directly aid women in need of life-saving patient care services. Through Komen’s Patient Care Center, which is staffed by patient navigators, Komen endeavors to link patients with a wide range of valuable resources. These resources include financial support for individual undergoing treatment or those living with metastatic breast cancer.

Komen’s cash assistance program serves as a crucial lifeline for individuals facing multiple barriers to accessing essential care and Komen can provide a variety of resources and stay with a patient for as long as they need support.

 

 

This is our 7th consecutive year partnering with Susan G. Komen® and we have proudly raised over $254,000 to date. Last year alone, we raised $59,100 for the fight and we’re looking to beat that this year. We believe we can do it with your support!

For every New and Pre-Owned Porsche purchased or leased during October, Porsche Walnut Creek will be donating to Susan G. Komen® communities in California. While you’re browsing for your next dream vehicle, Drive For A Cause and make a difference in the lives of many and our community!

We’re excited to see our end results and look forward to seeing how you Drive For A Cause! Snap a picture and tag us using #FJCares.
