Brilliance Subaru's "Share the Love" Event Results in a $23,000 Check to Food For Greater Elgin!


For every new vehicle sold or leased during the "Share the Love" event, the local Subaru dealership donated $250 to Food For Greater Elgin.

The folks at Brilliance Subaru have presented Food For Greater Elgin with a donation in the amount of $23,000. The money was raised throughout the course of the Elgin, IL area Subaru dealer's "Share the Love" event, which ran from November 19, 2015 to January 2, 2016. During the event, $250 was set aside for the local charity with each new vehicle that was sold or leased at their dealership.

"Food For Greater Elgin is thrilled to receive $23,000 through the Subaru 'Share the Love' campaign, which will provide 1,150 grocery carts of food to needy families in the greater Elgin area," remarked Michelle Frampton, Executive Director of Food For Greater Elgin. "Brilliance Subaru's commitment to giving back to community will help fill 1,150 grocery carts full of food for families."

Over the past eight years the nationwide Subaru "Share the Love" event has raised over $35 million for national charity organizations including ASPCA�, Make-A-Wish, Meals on Wheels Association of America�, and the National Park Foundation. As part of the "Share the Love" event, individual Subaru dealerships across the country were invited to add a local charity of their choice to benefit from the campaign.

In choosing Food For Greater Elgin, the folks at Brilliance Subaru found a most worthy organization. Food For Greater Elgin is a regional Client Choice food pantry serving low income residents in Elgin, South Elgin, and East Dundee, IL. On average, they provide food assistance to 1,250 families monthly, feeding 6,000 individuals, nearly half of whom are children.

Their innovative Client Choice approach allows families to shop with grocery carts in a large warehouse, where they can personally choose the food items they want, rather than receiving pre-bagged groceries. This not only provides a level of dignity to low income residents but also results in less wasted food. In their new onsite Community Resource Center, the staff at Food For Greater Elgin connects clients with other social services to provide access to resources beyond food.

Lots of Tail-Wagging Fun Was Had at the Dog Days of Summer Event at Brilliance Subaru

Dog Days of Summer Event
Dogs and friends of dogs had a wonderful time at our own Brilliance Subaru Dog Park on Saturday, August 8. That's when we hosted our Dog Days of Summer 2015 Event, in partnership with Anderson Animal Shelter and local radio station 95.9 The River.

From 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. the day was devoted to our furry four-legged friends, some of whom were dressed to the nines and ready to have their pictures taken in the photo booth. Wet noses and wagging tails were everywhere apparent, and dog owners from throughout the Elgin and Crystal Lake area had as much fun as their faithful companions.

Dog Tested. Dog Approved.

Dog Days of Summer Event We don't think you'll find many auto dealerships that have a dog park, but then Subaru isn't your ordinary automaker. Known for producing vehicles that are safe, durable, and equipped with standard all-wheel drive, Subaru makes models that are ready to take on all road and weather conditions and are built for anyone who leads an active lifestyle. They are also "dog tested and dog approved," as Subaru has demonstrated in their entertaining "Meet the Barkley's" campaign.

Here at Brilliance Subaru we know that many of our customers are dog owners, and along with offering the full lineup of new, dog-friendly Subaru vehicles, we are pleased to provide a dog park for you and your beloved canine to enjoy whenever you visit us.

Let's do it Again Next Year

Here at Brilliance Subaru we want to thank the Anderson Animal Shelter, 95.9 The River, and all of those who attended for making our Dog Days of Summer 2015 Event a success. We were thrilled that so many of you and your dogs could join us, and we look forward to seeing you all again next year. We'll have the kibble, treats, and liver snaps ready!

Meanwhile, stop by our Subaru showroom in Elgin and take a look at the latest Subaru vehicles available. We're certain that you'll find a Subaru that is just the right fit for you and your dog. Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions, and we hope to see you soon at Brilliance Subaru!
