Guelph Infiniti Grand Opening Event is under way

Guests arrive at Guelph Infiniti for our Grand Opening Celebration in support of United Way Guelph Wellington Dufferin

On Friday October 20th, Guelph Infiniti partnered with United Way Guelph Wellington Dufferin for its Grand Opening Celebration. Together, with thanks to our loyal customers, and new customers to be, we were able to raise over $10,000 to help fund local charities and programs that United Way Guelph Wellington Dufferin supports.

It’s all about Community

Guelph Infiniti has been a part of the Guelph, Kitchener-Waterloo, and Cambridge Community for over 20 years. As Guelph Infiniti is the only luxury vehicle dealership in Guelph, and has always been a proud community supporter, we wanted to do things a little differently with our Grand Opening Celebration. While showing everyone in our community what our new facility is capable of, the high level of customer service you will receive when you visit, and the luxury vehicles we sell like the popular Q50, Q60 and QX60. We partnered with United Way Guelph Wellington Dufferin to help raise funds to support all the local programs, agencies, and focus areas they provide assistance to in our community.

Ken Dardano, Executive Director of United Way Guelph Wellington Dufferin introduced Jeff Emmerson as their Fund-A-Need guest speaker. Jeff is a Mental Health Author, and public speaker. With over 1 million twitter followers and a published book titled “Beyond ADHD”, Jeff shared his incredible story with everyone in attendance. A story of how a suicide death in his family brought him close to his own attempt. How programs funded by United Way Guelph Wellington Dufferin were able to provide him and his wife Amy, with the support they needed to overcome their battle, Brick by Brick. We encourage everyone to follow Jeff Emmerson to learn more about his journey.
Soon after Jeff shared his story with everyone, Mark Rodford, Director of Business Development with United Way Guelph Wellington Dufferin began the Fund-A-Need portion of the evening, with everyone’s kind and generous donations we were able to raise over $10,000! We are so proud of our community and everyone who joined us that evening for supporting such a great and needed cause.
