Drive for a Cause: Breast Cancer Organization
According to the American Cancer Society, it’s estimated there will be 266,120 new cases of invasive breast cancer and 40,920 breast cancer deaths that among U.S. women this year*.
Roughly 1 in 8 women in the U.S. will be diagnosed with breast cancer in her lifetime.
October is National Breast Cancer Awareness month and Fletcher Jones California has teamed up Susan G. Komen, the world’s largest breast cancer organization, for the second consecutive year in an effort to raise money to cover costs for women in need of a life-saving mammogram ($125).
That is why Fletcher Jones will be donating to participating Susan G. Komen Affiliates in California for every new Mercedes-Benz purchase or lease. Being a part of the Fletcher Jones family with the Nation’s #1 Mercedes-Benz and Audi dealer**, along with our Costa Mesa and three Bay Area sister stores joining the fight, we’re excited to see our end results and reach our goal of beating last year’s donation of $24,025! Plus, our three sister stores in the Bay Area have also joined the fight!
