United Way of Harrison County Teams up with Car Dealership for Fundraiser

Posted: Updated:
CLARKSBURG -

The United Way of Harrison County and Country Club Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram hosted a unique fundraiser on Monday afternoon.

For just $1 you could write your name on a brand new Jeep Cherokee that was located outside of the Harrison County Courthouse and help the United Way of Harrison County in the process.

Country Club Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram then matched the proceeds made.

"You pay a buck, we multiply it by five and give it all to the United Way, and they get to autograph a car which not everybody gets to do everyday. This was kind of unique for this particular project because it was a brand new car and we thought this was a good way to highlight it by bringing it right down town and show it off," said Gary Bowden, who is a Clarksburg city council member and is a consultant for Country Club Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram.

More than $50 was raised and the car dealership will then match the money five to one.

The United Way was hoping to make between $500 and $1,000.

The United Way of Harrison County has raised 70% of its goal for money raised for the year.
