Volkswagen took part in the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance Charity Drawing during Monterey Car Week in August, donating a 2019 Volkswagen Arteon SEL Premium R-Line® for a lucky grand-prize winner. Proceeds from all tickets sold at the event benefitted the Natividad Foundation, based out of Salinas, California.
“We are thrilled that the Arteon has helped raise money for high-quality health care and trauma services through this charity drawing,” said Hinrich J. Woebcken, President and CEO, Volkswagen North American Region. “Volkswagen is proud to have worked with the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance and the Natividad Foundation, in their commitment to raising the bar for local health care.”
The Natividad Foundation works with the mission of improving healthcare services at Salinas’ Natividad hospital, which has served Monterey County for more than 132 years.
The Charity Drawing was hosted by Jay Leno, who handed over the keys to the winning ticket-holder. Volkswagen’s new flagship sedan, the Arteon boasts a 268-horsepower 2.0-liter TSI® engine, DCC® chassis control, and a sweeping and stylish profile.
The new 2019 Volkswagen Arteon will be arriving soon at Gossett VW Porsche. Stay tuned to learn when and how you can be among the first to take one for a test drive.
