Community-Wide Effort Runs May – June with Outreach, Virtual Events & More!
Sheehy Auto Stores is proud to announce the Sheehy Has Heart Sales Event running throughout May and June. This is a community-wide initiative in which all 30 Sheehy Auto dealerships sell cars while raising awareness and money to benefit the American Heart Association.
“The Sheehy Has Heart Sales Event is one of our most significant sales events and fundraising partnerships,” said Vince Sheehy, President of Sheehy Auto Stores. “As we all navigate living through the aftermath of COVID-19 pandemic and our new reality, it is important now more than ever to stay well through heart healthy diets and exercise. We are proud to once again partner with the American Heart Association and their ‘Healthy for Good’ initiative to provide homebound and socially distant support and guidance.”
Last year, we raised $340,000 for the charity. To date, Sheehy’s fundraising efforts have raised more than $40 million for community and non-profit organizations, and over $2 million raised for the American Heart Association. We thank you for your continued support in helping us exceed our expectations!
Each of our Sheehy dealerships throughout Washington, DC, Richmond, VA, Hagerstown and Baltimore, MD will lead various initiatives in support of the Sheehy Has Heart Sales Event to include virtual events to engage the community with ways to stay heart healthy.
“With the dedicated support of Sheehy Auto Stores, we’re advancing the lifesaving work of the American Heart Association and saving and improving lives right here in the Greater Washington Region,” said Soula Antoniou, Executive Director of the American Heart Association. “We are so thankful for Sheehy’s commitment to furthering scientific breakthroughs, strengthening the health and wellness of their workforce and showing our community what it means to live fierce!”
The mission of the American Heart Association is to build healthier lives, free of cardiovascular diseases and stroke.
Our goal is to build healthier lives, free of cardiovascular diseases and stroke for all Americans. We are constantly working hard to reduce the number of people dying from cardiovascular diseases and strokes. We do this by advocating to place AEDs in public places like airports and malls, researching to find the next medical breakthrough in regards to heart health, helping hospitals implement different processes to improve stroke and cardiac patient outcomes and establishing CRP guidelines and training people of all ages to be able to save lives. We are also reducing the high amounts of bad calories children are consuming at school and celebrating the many babies that are saved by the mandatory pulse oximetry screening that they receive before leaving the hospital. We are thrilled to be working with Sheehy Auto Stores for the Sheehy Has Heart Sales Event.
Together we are working to save lives and better our community!
