Keenan Auto Body Raises $28,500 for Charity

Keenan Auto Body VP and COO Michael LeVasseur announced the successful outcome of Keenan’s 12th Annual Charity Golf Outing held at Penn Oaks Golf Club on June 3.

“I am very pleased to announce that we have raised a record amount of $28,500 for the Philadelphia Ronald McDonald House and the Russella Educational Fund,” he said.  “This was the first year that we chose more than one charity to name as the benefactor.”

Of the funds raised, $15,000 was earmarked for playground equipment for the PRMH located at Front and Erie streets in Philadelphia, Pa., and $13,500 was given to the Russella Educational Fund, a fund set up for the children’s educations of Bernadette Russella, who recently lost her battle to breast cancer.

“This year’s outing was special," said Craig Camacho, Keenan Auto Body’s marketing director. “Bernadette LeVasseur Russella is the sister of Mike LeVasseur, Keenan’s VP and COO. It’s a great feeling when you can come together and help those who consistently without fail help others. Mike is always there for everyone when called upon — it’s a trait his entire family lives by. I want to personally thank everyone that played a part and generously donated making our event a complete success.”

Keenan Auto Body has raised close to $200,000 in the last 12 years for charities such as Big Brothers Big Sisters, Camp Mak-A-Dream Foundation, Delaware County Children and Youth Services, The Papa Pandeli Fund, the Make A Wish Foundation and this year’s charities, The Philadelphia Ronald McDonald House and the Russella Educational Fund.

Keenan has already scheduled the date of its 13th Annual Charity Golf Outing, which will be held at Penn Oaks Golf Club on June 9, 2011.

Founded in 1952 by Joseph T. Keenan and acquired by his son Donald in 1979, the family owned collision centers are some of the largest of their kind in the Northeast region. Keenan offers its customers the highest quality workmanship at no more then industry standard rates.
