Capistrano Volkswagen | Mazda Fundraising for Relay for Life South Orange County CA

Relay for Life is an inspiring community-based event that raises money for the American Cancer Society. Over 5,000 Relay for Life fundraising events are held in the United States and around the world each year, including right here in South Orange County, California. Capistrano Volkswagen | Mazda raised $12,712 on behalf of Relay for Life this year. The event took place from June 8 – 9 at Oso Viejo Community Park in Mission Viejo.

It was through the help of our employees, the many vendors we do business with, and our manufacturer partners Mazda and Volkswagen that we were able to raise so much money. We had pizza parties, ice cream socials, cronuts in the morning, collected everyone’s loose change, and even raffled off free Vehicle Details for a small donation. Our biggest fundraiser was our live and raffle auction that we had at our annual Manager BBQ June 6th celebrating our 22nd year as a dealer here in San Juan Capistrano. This was the most money we have ever raised in the many years we have been doing this and we are looking forward to next year and hope to raise even more. $15,000 or bust!

Importance of Relay for Life

In addition to raising money for the American Cancer Society, Relay for Life is true to its mission of “representing the hope that those lost to cancer will never be forgotten, that those who face cancer will be supported, and that one day cancer will be eliminated.” Here at Capo Volkswagen | Mazda, we’re proud to have participated in such a wonderful cause and we thank everyone who helped us raise so much money for Relay for Life!
