18th Annual Octoberfest Sales Drive

 

Octoberfest is here at Mercedes-Benz of Tri-Cities!

During the month of October a portion of every purchase goes towards local food banks. Customers also will be able to bring non-perishable food items into our showrooms. On top of these donations, community members purchased $5 and $10 food donation bags at local area Yoke's Fresh Markets. Will you join our community in filling local food banks this holiday season?

18th Annual Octoberfest Final Results

Thank you! During our 18th Annual Octoberfest the Tri-Cities and Walla Walla Communities were tremendously generous. Each year we work to raise donations and supplies and local food banks. The estimated total for the eighteen year event is over 920,000 lbs of food. The event is every October because it allows our local foodbanks to stock-up for the high demand of the holidays. We have a lot of fun working with our local partner at Yoke's Fresh Market. Customers at Yoke's purchase and donate $5 and $10 food bags all month long. We also could make it happen without Coca-Cola Distributors of Pasco and their help in storing and moving food supplies, and our friends at Mustang Signs who create awesome promotional materials. Yoke's Fresh Market customers donated 46,960 lbs of food and dealership donations totaled 11,500 lbs. Add to this the $55,295 check donation presented by McCurley dealerships and Yoke's Fresh Market Customers, and these donations will go a long way this holiday season. Ultimately none of it is possible without you, our community. Thanks to your generosity we were able to help raise over 58,460 lbs of food!

Here is what happened last year...

The 17th Annual Octoberfest Sales Drive

Last year, the 17th Annual Octoberfest Food Drive was a huge success. You, our customers and community, all made this possible. Over $51,000 was used to purchase food plus another 58,000 pounds of food went to local area Food Banks in the Tri-Cities, Walla Walla, and surrounding areas! Of course, none of this would be imaginable without all the work from the staff and volunteers at local Food Banks. We are projecting that over one million pounds of food will have been donated to those in need by our 20th Annual Event. We love this community!
