NJ CAR Presents MADD With Final $25,000 in Donations

Mar 01, 2006

NJCAR presented Teresa Stevens, Executive Director of Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) New Jersey, with a $25,000 check at the February 22 Board of Trustees meeting. The generous donation represented the balance of the $50,000 raised during the NJCAR-organized 2005 Tie One on for Safety Campaign.

The three-month campaign kicked off on Thursday, September 22, at a State House press conference with former Governor Richard Codey and representatives from MADD, NJCAR and participating dealerships. All told, 62 dealerships participated in the 2005 campaign. The Tie One on for Safety Campaign, one of MADD’s longest running programs, provided an excellent opportunity for dealerships to show their community support in a very visible way, while also raising funds for MADD NJ and public awareness about the issues of drunk driving and seatbelt use.
