CRANBERRY TOWNSHIP, PA – April 12, 2018 – In support of Autism Awareness Month, Ron Lewis Automotive Group dealerships are supporting the Autism Society of Pittsburgh with a sales fundraiser.  For every New and Used vehicle sold Thursday, April 19-Saturday, April 21 at all Ron Lewis Automotive dealerships in Cranberry, Pleasant Hills, Beaver Falls and Waynesburg, the Company will donate $10/vehicle to the Autism Society of Pittsburgh.

“Autism affects so many families in our communities and with this fundraiser, we’re helping to raise awareness, funds, and show our support for the local chapters of the Pittsburgh Autism Society,” said Jobie Glessner, Co-President, Ron Lewis Automotive Group.

“We appreciate all that our community does to help us aid the families in our area living with autism.  Companies, like the Ron Lewis Automotive Group, help us to move toward a nation where every person living with autism can always maximize their quality of life with full dignity, value and respect by all.  We can’t do this alone and appreciate their support,” said Mary Wildman, Vice President of the Autism Society of Pittsburgh.
