YORKTON – Ron Kaban and the staff of Yorkton Hyundai proudly presented a check to the Brayden Ottenbreit 2021 Close Cuts for Cancer local cancer initiatives program on Wednesday morning.
Yorkton Hyundai pledged to donate $ 100 for every new and used vehicle sold during the months of July and August.
The 6th annual Yorkton Hyundai Close Cuts Bucks campaign was a success and Hyundai raised over $ 10,000 for the program.
The money allows people to benefit from local testing and treatment options without having to leave the community.
“The community is always good, I mean we get tons of community support at our dealership, and out of town we are an area of attraction here,” said Ron Kaban, the main dealer at Yorkton Hyundai . “We are proud of everyone outside of the community who comes to buy cars from us and everyone else. “
The program aims to enrich the lives of area cancer patients and their families by funding ongoing cancer-related initiatives.
“Each year more and more good news comes out of cancer research and treatment,” said Greg Ottenbreit, co-founder of the Brayden Ottenbreit Close Cuts for Cancer Local Cancer Initiatives and Yorkton MLA program. “But through that, it’s more support for patients and their families and gives them a bit of optimism. Having some of these options improved and closer to home is a great thing for everyone ”.
Close Cuts has raised over $ 875,000 for cancer research and local cancer initiatives since 1998.
