Yark Automotive Group gives large donation to NW Ohio Alzheimer’s Association 

TOLEDO, OH- Yark Automotive Group will donate a large check to the NW Ohio Chapter Alzheimer’s Association as part of its December Fundraising campaign. 

On January 18th at 8am in the Yark Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram Showroom on the Central Avenue Strip, John Yark, Yark Automotive Group President, will present a check for $17,550.00 to Alz Assoc Board Chair, Dave Dimmer; Executive Director, Salli Bollin; and Toni Schindler, Development and Communications Director, Alzheimer’s Association, NW Ohio Chapter.

As part of an annual event, Yark Automotive Group donates a portion of every vehicle sold and serviced in the month of December to a local charity. This year’s charity was chosen as the Alzheimer’s Association. Yark has given in excess of $145,000 to local charities in its December promotion over the past 9 years. 

“It is such an honor to be able to help the local chapter of the Alzheimer’s Association in their education, volunteerism and research efforts to combat this debilitating disease,” said John Yark. “We are proud to be partnered with such an amazing organization.” 
As part of the month-long event, each Yark guest had the opportunity to give to the local chapter by making any purchase or service or simply by donating to have their name placed on one of the Alzheimer’s Flower Cards. The flower cards were then hung in the dealership to show support and raise awareness for Alzheimer’s.
