Takin’ Care of Business (every day)/ Takin’ Care of Business (every way).
Just like BTO, that’s what we do at Donate A Car Canada too! When donors advise, “My Wheels Won’t Turn,” we are happy to facilitate the donation process, transforming their vehicle into dollars for their charities of choice.
You Ain’t Seen Nothin’ Yet! Recently one of our donors surprised us with his 1981 Mercedes Benz 380 SEL – a vehicle he purchased brand new – and that he has owned until now, citing Life Still Goes On. We were pretty excited that a member of Bachman and Turner (formerly of Bachman-Turner Overdrive/BTO) was willing to let his car Roll On Down The Highway to the auction house in Winnipeg, to raise funds for ALS.
As a Canadian company supporting Canadian charities, having a Canadian celebrity grace us with said Mercedes rendered all of us here wishing we had been able to be a Shotgun Rider in that car before it went to its new home to a very lucky purchaser!
We just hope Mr. Fred Turner wasn’t singing, “Stayed Up All Night,” before turning over his Little Gandy Dancer to us. Fred was relieved to Let It Ride into a new homeowner’s garage, knowing that his baby is Not Fragile and will make another driver happy, as well as benefit the ALS Society of Canada.
We unashamedly asked for those in attendance at the auction to Gimme (Gimm-us?!) Your Money Please for a worthy cause, so we Can We All Come Together to raise some generous funds to find a cure for such a devastating disease, and $346.00 made its way to ALS.
How’s that for a combined effort in Takin’ Care of Business? A shout out to Mr. Turner of Bachman Turner Overdrive (BTO) for donating his long time love to make a difference in the lives of others!
