Dolan Auto Group Presents $10,000 Checks to 3 Schools

Posted: Updated:

The Dolan Automotive Group presented a check for $10,000 each to two local elementary schools and a high school on Friday.

To win the donations, principals of Northern Nevada schools entered their school online, and asked students to vote for the school over social media.

And today, Dolan Automotive presented $10,000 each to the winners, Fernley Elementary, Pau-Wa-Lu Middle School and Sparks High School - money that the schools will use to replace outdated or broken facilities.

Organizers say they're happy to give this money for an important cause.

"Instead of sitting on the sidelines we were gonna do something to get out in front of it and try to give right back to the schools any way we could in our community," says CEO Ryan Dolan.

Since 2011, the Dolan Auto Group has given away $220,000 to over 30 local schools.
