Local Dealership Shares No Involvement with Gun Violence Fundraiser


Parkland shooting victim students are to hold gun violence town hall at Naperville Church in conjunction with a co-sponsored car wash fundraiser on June 16th with Downers Grove North students near Bill Kay Chevrolet, which is located at Ogden Avenue and Interstate 355 in Lisle. News outlets have since removed Bill Kay Chevrolet as a landmark to the published article, revising posts, stating the co-sponsored car wash fundraiser on June 16th will be held in a neighborhood off Auvergne Avenue

Lisle, IL, June 11, 2018 --(PR.com)-- In an announcement published by local news publications on June 5th, Parkland shooting victim students are to hold gun violence town hall at Naperville Church in conjunction with a co-sponsored car wash fundraiser on June 16th with Downers Grove North students near Bill Kay Chevrolet, which is located at Ogden Avenue and Interstate 355 in Lisle.

News outlets have since removed Bill Kay Chevrolet as a landmark to the published article, revising posts, stating the co-sponsored car wash fundraiser on June 16th will be held in a neighborhood off Auvergne Avenue near Ogden Avenue and Interstate 355 in Lisle.

“It has come to our attention & disappointment that certain publications have referenced or implied the dealership to be involved with anything related to the event,” stated Dustin Collins, Director of Operations for Bill Kay Chevrolet.

Collins added “While Bill Kay Chevrolet supports all citizens’ rights to the 1st and 2nd amendments, we apologize & regret that local media has used the dealership as a landmark – implying that we in some manner are involved in said fundraiser. We have no affiliation with the group hosting the town hall or fundraiser, we have not donated any support, facilities, land, or anything of the sort. This is a classic miscommunication from using our dealership as a landmark, & nothing more.”

In closing Collins commented, “Bill Kay Chevrolet has been a pillar of the community for decades, hosting past & current fundraisers for great causes and groups such as the Illinois Spina Bifida Association through our annual Corvette Car Show. We are disappointed that such a miscommunication could happen.” Adding that again, “We have never planned, offered, donated, nor offered any services to or with events that position our business in a negative light or debate.”
