WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. -- Pepe Auto Group has signed on as the official luxury-auto group for the Westchester Knicks in their inaugural season at the Westchester County Center.
As a sponsor, Pepe Auto Group can choose a local nonprofit organization to benefit from exposure and outreach at a Westchester Knicks home game.
Pepe Auto Group has chosen My Sister's Place, a White Plains-based organization that provides education, awareness, and legal services to those who are victims of, or at risk of domestic violence.
Pepe Auto Group has supported hundreds of local organizations through various philanthropic efforts over the years. My Sister's Place has developed an excellent partnership specifically with Mercedes-Benz of White Plains, a member of Pepe Auto Group.
“We’re proud to be a sponsor of the Westchester Knicks, and even prouder to be able to bring in an organization close to our hearts, that has such a great impact in the sports community and our greater community at large,” said Gary Turco, general manager of Mercedes-Benz of White Plains.
Nearly 2,500 are expected to attend their dedicated game on Friday, Feb. 6. The Knicks will play in a purple uniform branded with the My Sister's Place logo.
In a special pre-game ceremony, the Knicks will present Karen Cheeks-Lomax, executive director of My Sister's Place, and Turco with a commemorative team jersey. During half time, the Knicks will show a recorded interview with Turco and Cheeks-Lomax.
There will also be a silent auction featuring three signed Knicks jerseys and an informational table about programs and services from My Sisters’ Place. Proceeds from both the game and silent auction will go to My Sister's Place.
My Sister's Place will be selling raffle tickets for a two year lease on a Mercedes-Benz CLA250, donated by Mercedes-Benz of White Plains.
Raffles will be sold through July, and the winner will be announced at the Annual Savor & Support Event, hosted by Mercedes-Benz of White Plains.
