The Simon Foundation from Bloomfield CT is a NON-KILL animal rescue and adoption center.

Dear Bertera Subaru Staff,

Aubrey, on the front of this card, says “thank you for your generous donation!” Your support helps us care for homeless or abandoned animals until they are adopted. Aubrey was cared for at TSF for four years until she found her forever home, donations like yours made that possible. The good news is that many of our animals do not wait that long to be adopted! With the continued support from donors like you, we will work to fulfill our mission to rescue, shelter and care for homeless animals in a safe place at TSF. Aubrey sends a Paws High-5 to you all for helping to give TSF’s dogs and cats a chance for a new life filled with love.

To everyone at Bertera Subaru,

We didn't want the evening to end without one more huge thank you for the incredible event today at your store in honor of Make a Wish and in celebration of Audrey's trip. It truly was incredible and our whole family is grateful for everything you did to make it so special. What you raised for Make A Wish is phenomenal. The amount of families who will benefit from your generous donation is incredible. I hope you know how much it means to a family like ours.

I chose not to read the attached this afternoon but prepared it for today's event. I regret not reading it. I feel it's important to know the child's story and wanted to share it with you. Audrey looks so healthy and honestly at this point, she is doing great but she has been through so much. I wanted to share it with you because I want you to know how much this means to us.

We thank you again for an incredible day and look forward to hearing about future wish kids enjoying their wishes, thanks to your generous donations.

Thank you again for everything. Please pass this along to Michael Bertera and anyone else you feel is appropriate.

Hope you have a wonderful evening.

Charlene and Rich Mainville

Bertera Subaru of Hartford will host a special Wish Delivery Party for Wish Kid Cameron on December 14th, whose wish to go to Hawaii will come true over the holidays.

For Cameron, this will truly be a wish come true.


Bertera Subaru will also be hosting a "Pack The Outback" campaign, where visitors and customers can bring in toys and gift cards to be donated by filling the Outback onsite.
