Cascade Subaru presented a check for $13,500 to the Conservancy for the Cuyahoga Valley National Park (CNVP) at a reception at the dealership earlier in the spring. The money was raised during the 2016 holiday season when Subaru donated $250 to a local charity for every car sold. Subaru raised more than $20 million nationally during the event, which is now in its ninth year.

"We are very pleased because this donation is in addition to our ongoing support of the Conservancy for CVNP as a major corporate sponsor," said Cascade Subaru Brand Manager David W. Hurte. "The Conservancy's mission aligns beautifully with the typical Subaru buyer. Our customers would be proud to support this great organization." Cascade's total contribution to the Conservancy is well in excess of $100,000.

Subaru buyers were given a choice of nonprofit organizations to support. The Conservancy was the local choice selected by Cascade Subaru. The dealership practically adjoins the immensely popular national park in northern Summit County.

Cascade Subaru, one of three dealerships in the Cascade Auto Group family, is no stranger to philanthropy. "We have partnered with the Conservancy in other fundraising efforts," said Michelle Primm, managing partner. "We like their education programs and the opportunities they present to children. We firmly believe in supporting organizations that make this community a better place to live."

The mission of the Conservancy for the CNVP is to preserve, protect and enhance the Cuyahoga Valley National Park's natural beauty and cultural history for all people, for all time.

Cascade Subaru has been part of the Cascade Auto Group family since 2001. The dealership is owned by the Primm family who established their first dealership in Cuyahoga Falls in 1969.
