Delaware Cadillac & AutoTeam Delaware Supports the Nemours Fund for Children's Health

In 2019 for the second year in a row , Delaware Cadillac, along with financial support from the Tri-State Philadelphia Cadillac Dealers, supported the Nemours/Alfred I. DuPont Hospital for Children's 14th Annual "A Night at Nemours" in June of 2019. We were able to assist with the transportation of over 800 guests from the parking area to the event area - which allowed guests to interact with the Cadillac product. Our $10,000 contribution as a Gold Sponsor supports pediatric cardiac research this year. Proceeds went towards an endowment, which provides perpetual funding to improve clinical care and research to help families who face medical issues far into the future. The world-class clinical teams will incorporate cutting-edge research and treatment protocols to give every child the best chance at happiness and success. To learn more, please visit Nemours.org. We are proud to support Nemours, and look forward to future years of support!

Delaware Subaru & AutoTeam Delaware Supports Christiana Care Health Organization

In 2019, for the fourth consecutive year, Christiana Care Health System Trustee Michael Uffner and his team at Delaware Subaru presented a generous gift to Christiana Care to support the special needs of babies in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) and their parents. The gift, totaling $13,200, was part of the proceeds from his dealership's "Share the Love" campaign."Christiana Care is where so many Delaware families get their start, and it's important they have access to the highest quality care and technology for a health beginning," said Uffner, president, chairman and CEO at Delaware Subaru and Auto Team Delaware. "Delaware Subaru is honored to support the work they do and give back to our neighbors and friends in the community."Over the past four years, Uffner and his team have given Christiana Care more than $50,000 as part of their effort to "Share the Love," which designates funds from every Subaru sold between November and January to select nonprofits."Delaware Subaru's 'Share the Love' campaign complements Christiana Care's values of excellence and love," said David A. Paul, M.D., chair of the Department of Pediatrics at Christiana Care and clinical leader of the Women and Children's Service Line. "They understand the importance of helping others with compassion and generosity, and we are grateful for their ongoing support."Christiana Hospital is the only delivering hospital in the state to offer a Level III NICU. The unit, fully equipped with advanced technology and expert neonatal specialists, averages 1,200 admissions a year. Subaru's philanthropy comes as Christiana Care enhances its Women and Children's services and builds a state-of-the-art facility at Christiana Hospital, opening in 2020.

Kia of Wilmington & AutoTeam Delaware Supports the United Way of Delaware

2019 marks the 7th year in a row that our Kia of Wilmington store has partnered with the United Way of Delaware in their fund raising campaigns to select a winner of a New vehicle. For the last 7 years, United Way campaign donors have been entered into the annual drawing to win either a brand new vehicle or cash by contributing to the United Way's annual fund raising Campaigns. This incentive for donors to contribute has helped the United Way of Delaware raise hundreds of thousands of dollars for charitable use. In 2019, the winner of the drawing elected to go with the cash offering and gave back a portion of the proceeds to the United Way of Delaware! All the donations from the raffle benefit United Way's Community Impact Fund that addresses early childhood reading, education, income, and health. We are proud to continue to partner with and support the United Way of Delaware.
