Herb Connollys 2012 Philanthropic Year in Review!

Posted by admin in Events | News | Uncategorized

Over the past year we have kept our strong commitment to the Framingham and MetroWest community. We fully believe in being active participants in supporting local charities, schools, foundations, and other groups who make a difference to the people in our area. In addition to the many posts we have made throughout this year highlighting our involvement in many worthy causes, we’d like to list the other sponsorships and donations we’ve made in 2012 that never made the blog!

We donated to the MetroWest Legal Services 2012 Nancy King Memorial Golf Tournament as a $750 Bronze Sponsor. Our support enables their advocates to save more families from evictions, secure more protective orders for victims of abuse, and assist more children in need of more critical educational services.

We made a $500 donation as a hole sponsor in the John Andrew Mazie Memorial Foundation Mentoring Program’s golf tournament. This mentoring helps to turn increasing numbers of Framingham High Schools at-risk children into children of promise. We were proud to receive a letter from a counselor at the school illustrating the impact our support is allowing them to make on our youth.

We donated Red Sox baseball tickets to Temple Israel of Natick, for their silent auction.

We contributed to the 12th annual Melanoma Foundation of New England’s golf tournament. The money raised helps to reduce incidence of melanoma through educational programs for prevention and eearly detection of skin cancer
Herb Connolly’s annual Golf Tournament raised over 10,000 which we donated to the Mount Auburn Hospital’s Hoffman Breast Cancer Center. Our contribution has direct impact on patients who rely on the center for expert clinical care and innovative support services.
Herb Connolly was a presenting sponsor of the 2011 & 2012 MetroWest YMCA Auction. This years event was able to raise more than $30,000 which will help the Y provide at risk and low income youth and famililes the opportunity to participate in important skill and character developing programs including child care and education, summer camp, sports, swimming, and leadership development activities.
We love helping out in our local schools and this year we made a donation to the Framingham High School Wrestling Team which helped them purchase raffle prizes, as well as sponsorhip of Football jerseys. We also sponsored the 5th annual Fuller Middle School Turkey Trot, which was a healthy, exciting and positive experience for the Fuller students, staff, and parents!
Thank your for continuing to support our family business, Herb Connolly Automotive Group, and we will continue to support you as well! Happy New Year, and we plan to make many more philanthropic endeavors in 2013!
