A Culture of Generosity
In September, Cox Automotive participated in their second year of a special tri-partnership with CARS, through a special promotion to St. Jude. You maximized this collaboration by supporting and running a 30-second spot to promote the vehicle-donation opportunity.
Apparently that was just the warm-up lap as you once again teamed with CARS for the second year of supporting and running a 30-second spot to promote the vehicle-donation opportunity.
During the Volunteer Awards Dinner in June 2019, CARS and Cox Automotive received the Partner Campaign of the Year award for a successful tri-partnership. We appreciate the ways you have connected with your contemporaries to help share the St. Jude mission.
Shifting Gears, Making an Impact
Since 2018, your partnership with St. Jude shifted to include fundraising throughout various subsidiary brands as well as individual fundraising, an initiative you kept throughout 2019. Through Warrior Dash, St. Jude Walk/Run, Southern Evening of Hope, golf tournaments, and in-kind banner ads and donations, along with NextGear, Kelley Blue Book and your tri-partnership with CARS—Cox Automotive raised an astounding $455,720!
Additionally, Cox Automotive was gracious to involve St. Jude as a fundraising and awareness component at your annual CASS convention in Las Vegas in February. We appreciate being able to make connections with your employees by hosting a booth in the Networking Lounge, through a text-to-give option and a dueling piano fundraiser. Being able to share our mission with your Retail, Manheim, NextGear Capital, Client Success and Corporate sales team members allowed Cox Automotive to raise an astonishing $54,902 over the week for the kids of St. Jude.
Additionally, 22 team members from Dealer.com visited the St. Jude campus for sales meetings and hospital tours on March 6, 2019. Also, through our introductions made at CASS, 13 State Automobile Dealers Association team members from 12 states, visited the campus for hospital tours and meetings on August 19, 2019. Having this exposure allowed us to share our mission with more of your sales teams.
