RENO, NV – Reno Dodge will give away $10,000 to a local charity through its “Causes We Care For” promotion, a new charitable program created by Reno Dodge to bring assistance to northern Nevadans in need.
Throughout the year, Reno Dodge will donate a portion of its proceeds from the sale of new vehicles to local non-profit organizations. The first $10,000 will be given away through a Facebook promotion where charity representatives can submit a 500-word story about their charity through April 5, 2013. Fans will be allowed to vote for their favorite story from April 6, 2013 through May 17, 2013. The organization with the most votes will receive $10,000 in cash.
“All of us at Reno Dodge feel so fortunate to live and do business in such a great community,” said Don Weir, owner of Reno Dodge. “We wanted to share that good fortune with others so we are introducing the Causes We Care For program.” Weir says the program is using Facebook, the popular social networking site, to reach out to those in need. “We invite all local non-profits to submit a 500-word description of its organization’s needs and goals on our Facebook page (facebook.com/renododge).” Entries will be posted on Reno Dodge’s Facebook page.
Organizations must be 501c(3) non-profits located in northern Nevada, and are limited to one submission in order to give everyone an equal chance. Submissions must be made by April 5, 2013. Voting will begin April 6, 2013, and run through May 17, 2013.
Weir encourages everyone to vote for their favorite charity. Voting is limited to one vote per person, per day. To enter, or for additional details, rules and regulations, visit Facebook.com/renododge.
