MANDAN, N.D., – The collection calls are complete and Kupper Chevrolet-Subaru is proud to announce that its customers and fellow community members raised over $24,000 for the N.D. National Guard Emergency Relief Fund (ERF).

The real lure may have been the 1,000 free hot dogs, 1,000 free hamburgers and pop.  But depending on who you asked, others may have pulled in to peruse the record 180 classic, retro and muscle cars. Whatever the reason, the people that stopped by Kupper Chevrolet Sept. 09 were committed to making an impact in the lives of others by voluntarily opening up their wallets and hearts to make a free-will donation.

"The free-will donations alone amounted to a third of the total raised," said Kupper. "That truly shows that people are passionate about supporting families of our military and were willing to open their wallets to show their appreciation."

 

The ERF assists N.D. National Guard Soldiers, Airmen and their families surmount sudden and unforeseen emergencies by providing financial support in the form of grants.

This was the 12th year the dealership has hosted the event.
