Garrettsville– Charles Chevrolet, one of 28 Chevrolet dealers from the Cleveland area that partnered with local youth soccer leagues for the 2011 season, raised nearly $87800 in total donations from the dealership and private parties. In addition to monetary support, Charles Chevrolet provided G-W (Garrettsville-Windham) Soccer Club with equipment donations, an opportunity to raise and keep up to $10,000 through a unique fundraiser, and participation in an instructional soccer clinic.

“Chevrolet has a long history with youth sports and we’re glad we were able to bring that commitment to our youth soccer leagues in Garrettsville where our customers and their families live, work, and play,” said Bruce Abraham, for Charles Chevrolet. “We’ve been part of this community for over 55 years and enjoy supporting our youth sports teams.”

G-W (Garrettsville-Windham) Soccer Club had the opportunity to raise as much as $10,000 through a fundraising opportunity. One lucky winner in each region won his or her choice of a 2012 Chevy Cruze or Equinox. Another lucky winner in the Cleveland-area received a home entertainment package. One-hundred percent of the proceeds of the fundraiser went directly to the league.

“We are delighted to be involved with youth soccer,” said Abraham, of Charles Chevrolet. “Sponsoring G-W (Garrettsville-Windham) Soccer Club gave us the opportunity to illustrate our commitment to the youth and families in Garrettsville and we’re glad to have achieved such positive outcome for the community.”

In 2011, more than 700 Chevrolet dealers participated in Chevy Youth Soccer across the USA.
