ENDICOTT, N.Y. (WIVT/WBGH) -Gault Auto has made a sizable donation to benefit local women battling breast cancer.
Last week, the dealership presented the Carrie-On Breast Cancer Foundation with a check for over $20,000 as part of its Gault Gives Back Program.
Gault Toyota gave away $100 for every vehicle sold in October to Carrie-On, coinciding with the foundation’s annual benefit.
Carrie On began in 2017 after Carrie Crowningshield passed away from breast cancer. The foundation was created by Carrie’s parents as a way to continue her legacy and financially assist women in their fight against the disease.
“It blew me away, it still is. I can’t wait to show her parents because they come up every year from Florida, they moved to Florida, and they come up every year for a couple of months for this benefit and to put this together. I am still at a loss. I appreciate Gault for everything they have done and so do they. We’re very, very touched by how they’ve helped the community and this benefit,” said Carrie-On Cancer Foundation Trustee Suzie Lupo.
Carrie-On makes $1,000 donations to individual women treated at Lourdes each year. With the funding from Gault, it hopes to expand its services to UHS and beyond.
