FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

White Plains, NY (August 10, 2015) – On Tuesday, August 4th , over 200 professionals and community members gathered at the CV Rich Mansion for Savor & Support, a festive summer party hosted by Mercedes-Benz of White Plains in support of My Sisters’ Place (MSP). This Savor & Support proved to be the most successful yet, raising over $25,000.

“This is really a celebration of an incredible partnership and a testament to our shared commitment to working together to end domestic violence and human trafficking and continuing to shed light on issues that impact us all,” said MSP CEO Karen Cheeks-Lomax, Esq. “We all cross paths with individuals who are currently experiencing this in their lives or are courageous survivors and heroes.”

This after-work affair highlighted the 5th year of a partnership between MSP and Mercedes-Benz of White Plains. General Manager Gary Turco presented MSP with $10,000 check and announced that Mercedes-Benz of White Plains will donate $50 to MSP for every new vehicle sold during the month of August and $1,000 for anyone who mentions MSP when purchasing a car.

“It has been a pleasure getting to know this wonderful organization,” said Turco. “We are so lucky to be in the position to support them and help them to truly change the lives of so many people in our community.”

Guests were treated to an amazing night with a tasting of Chazz Palminteri’s new BiVi Vodka and live entertainment by local rock band, The Proof. Attendees were moved by firsthand stories and encouraged to take open and honest conversation regarding these issues into their lives, engaging colleagues in their workplaces and with loved ones at home.

All proceeds raised from Savor & Support will directly fund critical MSP programs and services including: emergency shelter, legal services, counseling for children and adults and teen and community outreach through advocacy and education.

Sponsors included: Hollywood Mom, Auto Trader, Revo Marketing, Edmunds, Titan Outdoor, Motor Trek, Digital Airstrike, Westchester Magazine, and Caperberry Events.
