CRITZ BMW DRIVE FOR A CAUSE
Tuesday, June 28th
Critz BMW will be hosting a Drive for a Cause event that will benefit The Memorial Health Foundation and The Next Generation on Tuesday, June 28th, from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.
Owner Dale Critz, Jr. will say a few words at 11 a.m. and invites the media to take a test drive with him to kick off the event. For every test drive, $50 will be donated to The Next Generation, benefiting the children's hospital at Memorial University Medical Center. Charity representatives will also be at the event.
Building on the past year’s successful “Drive for Team USA” campaign, which supported U.S. Olympic and Paralympic athletes, the new campaign gives dealers the option of working with a local charity. Proceeds of the Critz BMW Drive for a Cause event will go to The Next Generation, benefiting the children’s hospital at Memorial University Medical Center as their charity of choice. The Next Generation’s mission is to foster a positive healthcare experience for our community’s children and further educate parents on children’s healthcare matters through fundraising, volunteer services, and educational outreach.
This event gives participants the opportunity to get behind the wheel and test drive the BMW 3 Series, 7 Series, X1, or X5, and allows them to compare the vehicles against competing brands. Critz BMW will donate $50 to The Next Generation for every test drive. Registration for the BMW Drive for a Cause event is available online and during the event at Critz BMW. Take a test drive. Make a difference.
