Lexus of Richmond – 2012 March for Babies!

When you think of babies, do you think Lexus of Richmond?  Well you should, and here’s why!

The staff and management of Lexus of Richmond had an awesome time supporting this year’s Born healthyMARCH of DIMES  – MARCH for BABIES

This year marked the third consecutive year that we’ve supported March of Dimes – March for Babies. Each year has afforded us an opportunity to come up with creative ideas to raise money and ensure we do our part in aiding in the birth of healthy babies and combat against infant mortality.  We’re equally passionate, because of the “premature” births we’ve encountered within our own Lexus of Richmond family.  Had it not been for the research and mission of the March of Dimes, our babies would not have had the wonderful outcomes they did, and we’re so grateful.

Our goal this year was to present MARCH for BABIES a donation of $5,000.00.  With group activities, fundraisers, customer donations  and the Lexus family, we met and exceeded our goal!  Our fundraising endeavors ranged from an Ultimate Yard Sale to Blue Jeans for Babies, and many others.  Not only did Lexus of Richmond show our support monetarily, we were the “official car” for the walk as well.  Our 2013 Lexus GS served as the pace car, accompanied by our Lexus RX

This year’s event ended on Sunday, April 22, 2012 with a MARCH for BABIES walk in Monroe Park, located in Richmond, Virginia.  It was a chilly, rainy day, but everyone passionate about the cause showed up in their rain coats, rain boots, and umbrellas to walk five miles to say “I care”. 

The March Continues!

One Day All Babies Will Be Born Healthy

So the next time you think “Lexus”, not only should you think Lexus of Richmond, but think “babies” and how much we love them.  We’re looking forward to participating in the 2013 March of Dimes – March for Babies!  We hope you can join our efforts.

March for Babies

Lexus of Richmond was recently honored as the top fundraiser for the Spring March of Dimes event.  The Lexus of Richmond team raised over $15,000 with four main programs:  bowling for babies (employee outing), Lexus of Richmond Yard Sale, donations from our Lexus owners and the actual March for Babies.

Lexus of Richmond “Ultimate Yard Sale” benefiting March for Babies

Thank you to everyone who came out to our “Ultimate Yard Sale” benefiting the March for Babies on Saturday!  The fundraiser was a HUGE success–we were able to raise an additional $3,700 towards our Lexus of Richmond team goal!  Click here for more photos.  Lexus of Richmond employees pulled together as a team and donated lots of gently-used items for the sale–everything from furniture and TV’s, to new and used baby items, clothes and more!  We also had a bake sale and car wash to add to the festivities.  We look forward to walking together as Team Lexus of Richmond on Sunday, May 15th in Monroe Park!  Look for our final donation annoucement (we’re still collecting here!) and pictures of the walk next week!  For more information about the Richmond, VA March for Babies walk, click here
