WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. -- Mercedes-Benz of White Plains hosted its 6th Annual Savor & Support auction on Aug, 4 to benefit My Sisters’ Place charity, raising  more than  $25,000 from over 200 guests.

My Sisters’ Place is a White Plains based organization that provides education, awareness, and legal services to those suffering from, or at risk of domestic violence.

This after-work affair served to highlight this partnership, as the charity awarded dealership general manager Gary Turco with a plaque for five years of outstanding service. “It has been a pleasure getting to know this wonderful organization; we are so lucky to be in the position to support them and help them to truly change the lives of so many people in our community” he said.

Turco presented My Sisters’ Place with $10,000 check and announced that Mercedes-Benz of White Plains will donate $50 to MSP for every new vehicle sold during the month of August and $1,000 for anyone who mentions My Sisters’ Place when purchasing a car.

“We are deeply appreciative of our partnership with Mercedes-Benz of White Plains,” said Karen Cheeks-LomaxMy Sisters’ Place, chief executive officer.“Savor & Support is now a summer party staple driven by Gary Turco’s commitment to stand with My Sisters’ Place and raise awareness about and shed light on intimate partner violence and human trafficking.”

The event featured a silent auction, raffle, live music, massage lounge from Oasis Day Spa, and a special vodka bar, which featured Chazz and Gianna Palminteri’s new vodka, Bivi.
