Supporting Susan G. Komen For The Cure At The World Series
San Francisco based CarWoo! (www.carwoo.com) is taking their vintage ’78 Chevrolet Camaro, freshly signed by Giants fans, to Game 5 of the World Series to continue raising money for the Susan G. Komen For The Cure Foundation
According to CarWoo! CEO, Tommy McClung, “There aren't many issues that align communities more than Breast Cancer Awareness, and there aren't many events that entice the excitement of the nation more than the World Series. At CarWoo!, we're going to bring these two spheres together - giving San Francisco Giants and Texas Rangers fans the chance to show that they can rally the most support for finding the cure.”
Explaining the event, he continues, “At the second World Series game, on Thursday, October 29, CarWoo! had our rockin' '78 Camaro - complete with a pink stripe down the center – at AT&T Park and asked Giants fans to donate to the Susan G. Koman foundation in exchange for being able to sign the Giants' side of the car in support of their team. We are doing the same thing for Rangers fans at the fifth game of the series on November 1.
“The fans who raise the most money will win the 'competition,' and all of the funds raised will go towards the Susan G. Komen chapter in the team's respective city. The car, complete with all of the signatures, will be auctioned off, and the proceeds from this sale will also be donated to the foundation.
“As a company, we think it is important to care about important issues and to give back. CarWoo! is all about making life more fun. We think that this effort really illustrates our culture of fun and compassions,” says McClung.
