The Auto Gallery of Winnipeg is behind the Winnipeg Jets’ quest for the Cup, donating $100 to Winnipeg Harvest for each playoff goal the Jets score from the second round on.

Like most Winnipeggers, the folks at Winnipeg Harvest are cheering for the Jets to have a long run in the NHL playoffs. In addition to pulling for the home team, though, Winnipeg Harvest has a more important motive for hoping for a Stanley Cup here.

Starting with the current series versus Nashville, Auto Gallery of Winnipeg is pledging to donate $100 for every goal the Jets score.

“We recently learned that Winnipeg Harvest is in need of funding, as their food stocks are critically low,” says Gord Pedersen, co-owner of Auto Gallery in partnership with Dan Gagnon. “With the excitement of the Winnipeg Jets vying for the Stanley Cup, Auto Gallery has launched a funding campaign for Winnipeg Harvest, and with Winnipeg Harvest’s bulk purchase leveraging, every $100 that we donate translates to $2,000 in food to feed those in need.

“Auto Gallery would like to put the challenge out to other dealers and businesses to find a similar way, or perhaps join in, to help Winnipeg Harvest. ADESA Winnipeg has accepted the challenge. Go Jets Go!”

Auto Gallery has been supporting local charities such as Siloam Mission and the Christmas Cheer Board for the past 16 years. Auto Gallery also supports various community hockey and baseball teams.
