We are proud to announce we will be participating in the 2021 Brakes for Breasts Campaign from October 1 to October 31 Last year was our first time participating, and thanks to your generous patronage then, we were able to raise over $1,000 for the good cause. This year, our team has set a goal of $2,000. Brakes for Breasts is a nationwide, month-long campaign during October each year How does it work? As part of the fundraiser, participating auto repair facilities will give away FREE (quality) brake pads or shoes. The customer simply pays the labor and any other ancillary parts necessary to complete the brake job, and the shops then donate 10% of the brake job directly to Dr. Vincent Tuohy & the Cleveland Clinic Breast Cancer Vaccine Research Fund. This Brakes For Breasts fundraiser is different from any other breast cancer fundraising campaigns ... read more

This year’s Holiday season will no doubt be challenging to all of us. I hope you will be able to rejoice, and celebrate among your loved ones. Also, in the event you are looking for an opportunity to also help those less fortunate, I would like you to consider our yearly Toys-For-Tots drive. This year marks the 4th year we do it. My staff and I ask for your help to make this the very best year so far. The isolation from family and friends is particularly hard on children, and with many more families facing tough economic times due to the pandemic, a toy or two can make a big difference for a child. Toys play an important developmental role in children, yet some don’t have any. I am sure we can all remember that special toy we had growing up. Will you help us make that a reality for some of the many children that will go without toys this holiday season without this important drive? In consideration of the the pandemic, we are offering a ... read more
