Crown Auto Group employees presented a cheque for $3,678 to the Mood Disorders Association of Manitoba for their Turning Pages program.

This past May and June, the Crown Auto Group held fundraisers for the CancerCare Manitoba Foundation and the Mood Disorders Association of Manitoba (MDAM).

Throughout the month of May, $20 from every vehicle sold at Crown Auto’s new car stores — Winnipeg Honda, Crown Acura, Crown Honda, Crown Mazda, Crown Nissan and Crown Toyota as well as the Automax pre-owned dealership — was set aside for the Mood Disorders Association of Manitoba.

On June 12, Crown Auto Group presented a cheque for $3,678 to the MDAM in support of the organization’s Turning Pages program — a mental health program for adults aged 50 to 70 to receive education, peer support, skills building and meaningful connections.

“The third-leading cause of death in Manitoban men aged 50 to 70 is suicide,” said Tara Brousseau Snider, executive director of MDAM.

“By partnering in this program ,you are saving lives.”

Crown Auto Group also partners with CancerCare Manitoba Foundation to provide support for those living with prostate cancer.

From June 12 to 14, Crown held an Ugly Tie trade-in event. New car buyers were encouraged to bring in an ugly tie when taking delivery of their new models — $25 from every tie brought in was donated to the foundation for a total of $1,275.
