GALION, OH- Donley Auto Group teamed up with United Way to give away 2-year lease for a Ford EcoSport to a lucky United Way donor.

In order to qualify for the contest, the donor must have given at least $260 to their county United Way Campaign.  This year's winner was Bernie Bannin of Ashland.

"I'm really glad to be a participant of the United Way," Bannin said.  "It's a great organization that helps the community year round.  I've supported it for years."

Vice President of Donley Auto Group, Ryan Sponsler said that the event means a lot to the community.

"I think it means a lot.  I think it just shows how involved we are in the community and we always have been.  With over 40 years in business, it's very important to pay it forward," Sponsler said.

Sponsler said that Donley Auto Group is thankful for their partnership with the nonprofit.

"I just want to thank the communities for being involved in this because they do a lot of work.  The United Way does a lot of work on this," Sponsler said.  "It's a great partnership, it always has been and we just look forward to doing a lot more with them in the future."

Bannin is thankful for all of the work that United Way does in the community and Donley Ford's support of the organization.

"I'm really excited that this year, not only did I support the organization, but I won this vehicle," Bannin said.  "I really appreciate Donley Ford who has offered this to help boost the United Way campaign and give back to the community."
