Tom Schmidt Led Fundraiser at Progressive Chevrolet for Cheer Squads and Hunger Task Force

Progressive Chevrolet hosted a pep rally with the Plain Local Youth Football Cheer Squads and the Stark County Hunger Task Force to benefit both organizations. Tom Schmidt developed the clever synergistic charity event.


Kicking off the evening, 60 pre-teen cheerleaders ran out of the Progressive Chevrolet Service department and performed their cheer routines to an appreciative crowd of 120 parents and other fans in the parking lot.


In the dealership showroom, guests helped support the fundraising through a 50/50 drawing and auction that netted the cheer squad $888. In addition, Progressive Chevrolet collected canned goods to donate to the Stark County Hunger Task Force, promising the dealership would give a one dollar to the cheerleaders for each donated can. With 131 cans given, the dealership gave $250 to the cheer squads.
