Eau Claire car dealership raises money for Boys and Girls Club

By  | 

EAU CLAIRE, Wis. (WEAU) An area car dealership raised money all last month for the Boys and Girls Club of the Chippewa Valley.

Prestige Auto says it gave $100 to the club for every car sold in June.

A total of $22,000 was raised, surpassing the fundraising goal of $20,000.

Prestige Auto says the money could not be going to a more worthy cause.

"I think it's a program that helps a lot of underprivileged children in the Chippewa Valley and we need to help these kids out. We can help them get a better boost in life, a better perspective on life, and that'll help them become better kids and better adults in the future," explains Dan Mattoon of Prestige Auto.

The company also had a hat deal, where customers could bring in an old hat, replace it with a new Prestige Auto hat, and the company would donate another $5 to the Boys and Girls Club.
