NJ CAR has teamed up with the Hope For The Warriors Organization to create the first annual New Jersey Auto Retailers’ Run For The Warriors. This 5K run, 1-mile walk and children’s 50-yard dash will be held on Sunday, September 22, 2013 at the NewJersey Vietnam Veterans’ Memorial in Holmdel (Exit 116 off the Garden State Parkway). By now, all dealers should have received a mailing from NJ CAR President Jim Appleton detailing the four levels of sponsorship (beginning as low as $2,500) available to dealers interested in supporting this worthwhile event. Hope For The Warriors was founded in 2006 by a group of dedicated military wives to enhance the quality of life for post-9/11 service members, their families and families of the fallen, who have sustained physical and psychological wounds in the line of duty. Hope For The Warriors offers a variety of programs that address Transition to Civilian Life, Education, Employment, Financial Assistance, Health and Wellness, Outreach and Community Awareness. The organization has been recognized as a “Best In America” organization by the Independent Charities of America and is accredited by the Better Business Bureau’s Wise Giving Alliance. Hope For The Warriors has also received a 4-Star rating from Charity Navigator (www.charitynavigator.com) for the superior overall performance of the organization, with 93% of all contributions going to fund the various programs. You can find out more information about Hope For The Warriors at the organization’s website: www.hopeforthewarriors.org. NJ CAR encourages all dealers to add their name to what will hopefully be a long list of event supporters. We have enclosed an Invitation To Support brochure with this NewsLetter and it is also accessible on the NJ CAR homepage (www.njcar.org). The brochure details how sponsoring dealers will be recognized and what promotional materials they will receive to further show their support and involvement with this inaugural event. If you would like to serve as a sponsor, please return the completed Sponsorship Commitment Form, along with payment, to Brian Hughes at NJ CAR Headquarters (856 River Road, West Trenton, NJ 08628). You will be contacted directly by a representative from Hope For The Warriors, who will coordinate the details applicable to your chosen level of sponsorship. Questions about this important event can be directed to Brian Hughes at 609.883.5056, Ext. 315 (firstname.lastname@example.org.
