Grease Monkey International, Inc. was pleased to support the Messner Foundation in its recent fundraising event of raffling off a brand new 2016 Starwood Custom Jeep Wrangler. Proceeds from raffle tickets went to the organization’s primary cause, which is to help underprivileged high school students with exemplary leadership skills go to college by funding them and pairing them with a mentor.
In support of the Messner Foundation, Grease Monkey Support Center raised awareness of the organization and its recent raffle event. The raffle drawing was held June 11, 2016, at Messner’s headquarters. The Messner Foundation hosted a block party to accompany the excitement of the raffle. Grease Monkey included a digital banner with raffle details on its corporate website and social media pages.
The Messner Foundation seeks at-risk, underprivileged youth who have gone above and beyond their peers throughout their high school years. These students are full of potential. They have demonstrated skills such as leadership and entrepreneurialism, and they add value to their community — they are the potential leaders of their generation. However, their financial situation leaves them discourages when thinking about college. The Messner Foundation funds scholarships and provides a mentor to qualifying high school seniors. The organization raises funds by hosting events, such as the raffle, and by collecting donations.
