This year, BMW of Peabody raised a record $45,000 for the foundation.
BMW of Peabody customers as well as area residents and businesses were invited to get behind the wheel of the BMW of their choice in the BMW Ultimate Drive® supporting Susan G. Komen for the Cure.

There were over 6,200 miles driven from 10:00am-5:00pm in BMW’s including the 3 Series Coupe, X3 SAV® and this year’s Signature Vehicle, the all new BMW X6. For every mile driven, BMW donated $1 to the Susan G. Komen Foundation. Additionally, Warren Waugh, Managing Partner of BMW of Peabody and the Lyon Waugh Automotive Group matched that contribution.
BMW of Peabody also raised several thousands of dollars for the Foundation with a silent auction. Items featured in the silent auction included autographed sports memorabilia, concert and sporting event tickets and restaurant gift certificates. 100% of the proceeds were donated to the Susan G. Komen Foundation. Charitable donations directly to the Susan G. Komen foundation were also accepted from the community and from dealership employees.
This is always BMW of Peabody’s biggest philanthropic event of the year and the dealership is proud to be part of this amazing foundation. They were also proud to honor a local area hero for the day that has been affected by Breast Cancer.
