Kenosha Nissan donates $5,000 to Wisconsin VFW

A Nissan dealership in Wisconsin recently gave a little something back to U.S. veterans who selflessly served their country.

On July 15, Bob Rohrman Kenosha Nissan donated $5,000 to VFW Post 185 in Kenosha as part of a monthlong sweepstakes in which customers who came in to the dealership for either a test drive or to purchase a vehicle had the chance to enter the contest by providing their contact information. Earlier in the month, the dealership hosted a dinner for sweepstakes contestants to come in and watch the drawing. 

No one claimed a winning ticket, so Kenosha Nissan invited the VFW Post Commander to accept the money.

“The pride in contributing to the welfare and growth of any veteran organization is something felt from the sales people at the front door to the service techs in the garages,” Bob Rohrman, a veteran himself, was quoted in a press release. “We will continue to look for opportunities to benefit these heroes in the future.”

Russell J. Wiedman, director of accounts with Orange Media Group, Inc., said that Kenosha Nissan considers it an honor to serve the community in any way it can.

“The dealership wants to be someplace where a local community resident can go to feel respected, taken seriously and treated with an honest smile,” Wiedman told Mega Dealer News. “From donating to a local organization for this contest, to sponsoring the Kenosha Boys and Girls Club, getting involved in summer events like Tall Ships and Tribute Island, and aiding both the Kenosha Chamber of Commerce and the Kenosha County Sheriff's Department, the dealership is finding pride in any generosity it can provide to groups that have beneficial purposes within the community.”
