Charity Honors Dealer Manager
Atlantic Automotive Group announced that Dan Toomey Sr., general manager of Atlantic Hyundai, was honored by the Make-A-Wish Foundation on May 3.
In 2001, two representatives of the Make-A-Wish Foundation, Karine Hollander and Robert Bigler, approached Toomey and asked if Atlantic Hyundai would contribute to the cause.
Toomey said it was easy to go along.
"Their passion, the intensity of their resolve to bring a smile," he said. "How could anyone deny any request of this dynamic duo?"
From that point on, Atlantic Hyundai has been proud to donate to the organization in many ways. First, Atlantic Hyundai has donated a vehicle to the Make-A-Wish Foundation for 11 consecutive years.
This year the Atlantic Automotive Group saw Atlantic Hyundai donate a 2012 Hyundai Sonata GLS to the foundation with Toomey Sr. saying, "may all that you give come back to you and yours many, many times over."
Also, the dealership supports and encourages customers to donate funds on their own. For any customer that donates to the Make-A-Wish Foundation, Atlantic Hyundai matches that amount, up to $3,000, and applies it as a discount for the customer who donated or any member of their family who comes to purchase a new car from the dealership during May or June.
