A lofty goal was set at the beginning of 2015 for Guaranty Chevrolet and RV Super Centers. With nearly a month and a half to go in the year, that goal has been met. Guaranty has now done what it set out to do, which is raise over $100,000 for local youth groups as part of a partnership with the Cosmos-Bellotti Sports and Leadership Foundation (CBSLF).
School supplies, much-needed uniforms, building materials for new churches and an educational trip are just a few of the success stories from the first year of Guaranty’s fundraising partnership with the CBSLF.
“We formed the Cosmos-Bellotti Sports and Leadership Foundation with the intent to raise money for leadership and athletic programs through our fundraising platform,” said Mike Bellotti, CBSLF Co-Founder.
Through the end of summer, Guaranty had donated Cosmos Creations at no cost to 13 area groups, helping them raise $42,874. After a dinner celebration hosted by Coach Bellotti and Guaranty in August, interest in the program jumped and the fundraising goal of $100,000 was met on November 11, 2015. In total, Guaranty has now helped 29 groups raise $101,424!
To celebrate this achievement, Guaranty hosted a number of sponsorship recipients for a breakfast celebration at it’s newly remodeled RV Travel Center on November 12 in Junction City. Those in attendance included Shannon Nill, as well as representatives from Cosmos Creations, Nature Discovery Christian School, Lane County 4-H, Eugene International Christian Church, Harrisburg Elementary and more.
“We are proud to be a part of the Cosmos-Bellotti Sports and Leadership Foundation. This has done a great job of helping youth groups attain the goals that they have in mind for their kids. This really is the fundraising of the future and will help these kids learn new skills along the way. So give these kids a pat on the back and buy the product when they knock on your door,” says Shannon Nill, Guaranty RV President.
The Cosmos-Bellotti Sports and Leadership Foundation is a non-profit organization created by Cosmos Creations in Junction City and Mike and Colleen Bellotti. The fundraising program aims to build integrity, foster teamwork and encourage students to strengthen their sports programs through leadership and service.
