Community Involvment

Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure | September 2018
Brown Automotive Group and William Schuiling sponsored the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure in Washington D.C. on Saturday September 8, 2018. The race featured pink-clad participants and brought people from across the nation together on Freedom Plaza to raise close to $600,000 for breast cancer research! 

About 1 in 8 women in the United States (12.4%) will develop breast cancer over the course of her lifetime. A man's lifetime risk of breast cancer is about 1 in 1,000. Deaths for women in the U.S. due to breast cancer are higher than those for any other cancer, besides lung cancer. Given that this disease is so prevalent in our country, finding a cure is imperative. 

Fundraising through the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure helps support research, care, and community initiatives. Support for breast cancer research provides better detection, prevention and treatment for all types of breast cancers. Fundraising also delivers additional access to innovative clinical trials and low to no-cost screening, diagnosis and treatment.

Through advocacy in the community, Susan G. Komen is able to provide access to affordable yet premium breast cancer treatment and overall breast health services. Brown's Car Stores and William Schuiling are proud to sponsor such a wonderful organization as Susan G. Komen and be part of the efforts to find cure!

Paws for a Cause | 2016
Brown's VW Jaguar of Richmond are working with a local radio station (Star 100) on a community effort called "Paws for a Cause" where the station directs listeners to bring dog food, treats, and toys to the dealership to be donated to the Richmond SPCA. Brown's VW placed a box in their showroom to collect the donations. Click here to check out the video from our dealership!

Brown's Richmond VW Jaguar was proud to partner with the Virginia Breast Cancer Foundation! We presented a $2,000 donation check to the cause! Virginia Breast Cancer Foundation is a grassroots organization committed to the eradication of breast cancer through education and advocacy.

 


Visit Brown's Jaguar, Where Luxury Meets a Commitment to the Local Community

It'd be easy to assume a luxury car dealership like our Jaguar store in Richmond cares only about profits and slick looking new models. But if you've ever visited any of the Brown's Auto dealerships around Northern Virginia and the D.C. area, you'll know our dedication to community involvement is second to none. Supporting causes like Bikes for Kids and the Virginia Breast Cancer Foundation, we continually take the pulse of the community to learn what's important for residents of Hanover, Charlottesville and Mechanicsville.

Why are we so dedicated to community service? As you'll learn with our other Brown's Auto dealerships in and around Richmond, our owner William E. Schuiling has long held a philosophy of charitable giving and supporting local communities where his stores are located. That's in part to his support for and meetings with U.S. Presidents like Gerald Ford and Barack Obama. Understanding how the leaders of the free world work in their communities to give back, Schuiling takes those ideals to his businesses, like our Jaguar dealership near Petersburg.

Whether it's the holiday season or for events supporting veterans and military members, we're always happy to lend a hand in our local communities. Giving back goes beyond just a way to get more customers to visit, as we feel fortunate to be involved with some great efforts and organizations that work tirelessly to make sure this area of Virginia remains a great place to live and visit. Let us know what kinds of charitable organizations and events are important to you, and you'll most likely find we're already involved.

Keep up with our latest efforts by returning to this page or by visiting Brown's Jaguar whenever you're in the Richmond area. We're always looking for new ways to connect with the local community, so let us know what you're working on and we'll be happy to listen.
