Richmond BMW/Crown Mini pledges that each car sold in August will benefit homeless pets

Richmond, VA --- Richmond BMW/Crown Mini and Richmond BMW Southside have pledged to donate $100 to the Richmond SPCA for every car sold during the month of August at their two Richmond locations. Each Saturday in August, the Richmond SPCA’s mobile adoption unit – the Tail Wag’N – will alternate visiting the dealership’s Midlothian and West Broad locations to support the promotion.

Richmond SPCA Chief Executive Officer Robin Starr said, “Corporate support is vital to the Richmond SPCA’s mission and makes possible our many programs and services that save lives and improve the welfare of companion animals. The entire team at Richmond BMW/Crown Mini has shown themselves to be great animal lovers dedicated to repeating the successful partnership we first established last year.”

This is the second year for the August promotion. In 2008, the partnership resulted in a gift of $20,100 to support homeless animals at the Robins-Starr Humane Center.

“As a dealership, we strive to create a culture of philanthropy and compassion, and each of our employees exemplifies those values,” said Matt Perry, general manager of Richmond BMW/Crown Mini. “Establishing ties with a local cause that our staff cares about deeply is a priority. It is a perfect match for our team to support the work of the Richmond SPCA.”
