Hoffman Auto Group Supports MADD with $19,555 for Campaigns

The Hoffman Auto Group is proud to continue its support of Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD). The Hoffman family presented a check for $19,550 to MADD representing their partnership in the annual Tie One On For Safety (TOOFS) campaign and Walk Like MADD event.

Not only is someone injured every two minutes, but 28 people will die every day as a result of a drunk driver. MADD is the nation’s largest nonprofit organization working to protect families from drunk driving and underage drinking. Each year, Hoffman Auto Group donates a portion of the proceeds of all vehicles sold in December to MADD for the TOOFS campaign.  Additionally, Hoffman sponsors the Walk Like MADD event which raises awareness, funds and honors loved ones who have lost their lives due to drunk or drugged driving accidents. This year’s walk on May 14, 2016 was in memory of David Snell, whose life was cut short in 2005 and his family was severely impacted.

Hoffman Auto Group joined the Hartford Police of CT, American Medical Response, Country 92.5 FM, iHeartRadio, Dave & Buster’s, City of Hartford Fire Department, event volunteers, many other sponsors as well as supporters and families to Walk Like MADD. A heartfelt thank you to Janice Margolis who has dedicated 33 years of her life to eliminate drunk driving.
