The Sheehy Auto Stores' 22nd annual Sheehy 8000
sales event will run from May 10th to July 5th. This is a community wide initiative in which all 22 Sheehy Auto dealerships strive to sell 8,000 cars & trucks to help raise awareness and money to benefit the American Heart Association.
"Thank you for your support of the Sheehy 8000, our most significant and meaningful sales event of the year,” said Vince Sheehy, President of Sheehy Auto Stores. “We are very proud to once again partner with the American Heart Association, a cause that is close to many of us, with fundraising efforts and community outreach programs. With the help of our neighbors, partners, and staff, we hope to exceed our goal."
Last year, our Sheehy 8000 campaign raised $300,000 for the charity. To date, Sheehy's fundraising efforts have raised more than $40 million for community and non-profit organizations, and over $1 million raised for the American Heart Association!
Each of our Sheehy dealerships throughout Washington, DC, Richmond, VA and Baltimore, MD will lead various initiatives in support of the Sheehy 8000 including healthy cooking demonstrations, blood pressure screenings and CPR training for employees and the community.
Our partnership with the American Heart Association extends beyond the Sheehy 8000. For the past several years, we as a company have been a sponsor of the National Walking Day event which is held on the first Wednesday in April at Springfield Town Center, to promote walking and a heart-healthy lifestyle. In addition to our involvement at the Springfield Town Center event, each of our Sheehy dealerships held their own step challenges among employees that day logging in over 400,000 steps for the group!
"Sheehy Auto Stores’ support is creating healthier communities in the Greater Washington, Baltimore and Richmond regions,” said Soula Antoniou, Executive Director at the American Heart Association. “Thank you Sheehy team members, customers, and vendors for your support of AHA’s mission. By working together, we can be a relentless force for a world of longer, healthier lives.”
