Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure | September 2018
Brown Automotive Group and William Schuiling sponsored the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure in Washington D.C. on Saturday September 8, 2018. The race featured pink-clad participants and brought people from across the nation together on Freedom Plaza to raise close to $600,000 for breast cancer research! 

About 1 in 8 women in the United States (12.4%) will develop breast cancer over the course of her lifetime. A man's lifetime risk of breast cancer is about 1 in 1,000. Deaths for women in the U.S. due to breast cancer are higher than those for any other cancer, besides lung cancer. Given that this disease is so prevalent in our country, finding a cure is imperative. 

Fundraising through the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure helps support research, care, and community initiatives. Support for breast cancer research provides better detection, prevention and treatment for all types of breast cancers. Fundraising also delivers additional access to innovative clinical trials and low to no-cost screening, diagnosis and treatment.

Through advocacy in the community, Susan G. Komen is able to provide access to affordable yet premium breast cancer treatment and overall breast health services. Brown's Car Stores and William Schuiling are proud to sponsor such a wonderful organization as Susan G. Komen and be part of the efforts to find cure!

Richmond Sports Backers | 2017
Congratulations to our very own Naomi Chobanian who was featured on the Richmond Sports Backers Blog!

Paws for a Cause | 2016
Brown's VW Jaguar of Richmond are working with a local radio station (Star 100) on a community effort called "Paws for a Cause" where the station directs listeners to bring dog food, treats, and toys to the dealership to be donated to the Richmond SPCA. Brown's VW placed a box in their showroom to collect the donations. Click here to check out the video from our dealership!

Brown's Richmond VW Jaguar was proud to partner with the Virginia Breast Cancer Foundation! We presented a $2,000 donation check to the cause! Virginia Breast Cancer Foundation is a grassroots organization committed to the eradication of breast cancer through education and advocacy.

 


Connect With Your Community Through Our Richmond, VA Volkswagen Dealership

There's always a lot going on here at Brown's VW, conveniently located on Midlothian Pike in Richmond, VA. Of course our lot and showroom always feature the latest new Volkswagen cars and crossovers, and our parts and service departments are busy keeping drivers from Chesterfield and Charlottesville safe and sound out on the road. But there's a lot more happening here in Richmond than just what you'd expect out of a well-known car dealership, and it's with our dedication to community service that we really connect with folks from all over Northern Virginia.

Taking the lead, as always, is our owner, William E. Schuiling, a businessman who's well-renown throughout the Richmond area and closer to Washington D.C. It's in the nation's capital where Schuiling learned from some pretty impressive individuals what it means to be a leader dedicated to philanthropy and community service. Think U.S. Presidents like Ford, Reagan, H.W. Bush and Obama, all of whom served as inspiration for Schuiling's efforts to improve the communities where his Brown's Auto dealerships serve.

Our Volkswagen dealership is always at the forefront of important causes and events around the Fredericksburg and Petersburg areas. Helping young people from all walks of life stay active, we're proud supporters of the Bikes for Kids event and the Richmond Sports Backers. We're also a proud supporter of animal-related efforts like Paws for a Cause and you'll find us active during the holiday season when it comes to providing for the needy here in Richmond and nearby.

If there's an important cause or event going on in the Richmond community or nearby in Northern Virginia, you can be that Brown's VW will be involved. Come on over to our dealership today and find out what kinds of efforts we're working on and find out more to get involved yourself.
