Jim Ellis Automotive Joins the Fight Against Breast Cancer


The Jim Ellis Automotive Group teamed up with clients to raise $10,600 in donations for the Georgia Breast Cancer Coalition Fund.

Jim Ellis Automotive dealerships recently donated $10,600 to the Georgia Breast Cancer Coalition Fund (GBCCF) from money raised during Breast Cancer Awareness Month.


“It is our honor to work with Jim Ellis to help provide cancer patients with much needed services,” President of the Georgia Breast Cancer Coalition Fund Sheryl Cherico said. “The impact on these families is beyond words and we are proud to have Jim Ellis as a part of our team.”


In support of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, which takes place in October, Audi Marietta, Jim Ellis KIA of Kennesaw and Jim Ellis Volkswagen Kennesaw decided to give back to the community they serve.


“This initiative was very important to me as my wife’s aunt passed away from breast cancer and also a longtime Jim Ellis Employee in my store is a survivor of breast cancer,” said Jim Ellis VW Kennesaw General Manager Steve Rotenstein. “I wanted to try and help as many as possible during this holiday season.”


These three Jim Ellis Automotive dealerships, which each have multiple employees affected by breast cancer, joined forces to launch a campaign to raise money for the Georgia Breast Cancer Coalition Fund.


“I initially came up with concept of my KIA store being involved with supporting the Breast Cancer Coalition, based on my awareness being heightened by one of my closest friends being diagnosed at a relatively young age (34) with breast cancer,” said Jim Ellis KIA of Kennesaw General Manager Terrence Liddell.


“I met her and her twin sister in Graduate School and was deeply concerned for her life. Luckily her early diagnosis and treatment has led to a complete remission of the cancer causing cells in her body.


“To aid in my efforts, I reached out to Randy and Steve and asked for their support in helping to continue to bring focus to this issue. Ultimately, my goal is for everyone to understand how important early diagnosis is to a successful recovery.”
