Community Involvment

 

Duerksen & Associates and Toyota of Corvallis presented a new car to the winner of the Old Mill Center car raffle, Ken Haines of Corvallis.

In celebration of Old Mill Center’s 40th year of service in the community, the two local companies collaborated to offer a prize drawing of a 2017 Toyota Rav4 or Subaru Forester to the winner of Old Mill Center’s raffle.

Duerksen & Associates purchased the car and donated it to Old Mill Center as the raffle prize. Toyota of Corvallis spearheaded a promotional campaign, including TV ads and showcasing the cars at various events around town. Ultimately, all 400 raffle tickets sold, raising $40,000 for Old Mill Center. The lucky winner was announced at the Center’s Annual Dinner & Auction on May 6th, 2017. Ken chose to take home the 2017 Toyota Rav4 and upgraded to a silver Rav4 Hybrid Limited. At the presentation of the car, he removed his Volvo brand baseball cap and replaced it with a new Toyota baseball cap given to him by Toyota of Corvallis GM Chip Edwards.

Duerksen & Associates is a local property management company with a history of community involvement and support benefiting local children. Toyota/Subaru of Corvallis regularly supports a variety of local non-profits. Old Mill Center for Children and Families is a non-profit offering service that addresses the educational, social, emotional, and family needs of a diverse population of children. Keep your eyes peeled for Ken at Old Mill Center—he may soon join the organization as a volunteer!

 

 

Move over hockey "hat trick," hello "Teddy Bear Toss."  
 
In what has become a tradition much like in hockey, Oregon State Athletics holds an annual "Teddy Bear Toss", sponsored in part by Toyota of Corvallis, every December at Gill Coliseum during a men's basketball game. Fans literally litter the playing floor at halftime with a cascade of flying bears; all for the joy of underprivileged kids in the Willamette Valley.
 
"The event gets to be more popular every year," OSU Assistant Athletic Director for Marketing Sara Elcano said. "The size and number of animals, and how far fans can actually toss them is pretty impressive. If you are one of the fans with a front row seat -- `heads up'"

 
At the Dec. 11 men's basketball home game fans tossed 1,038 bears onto the floor and combined with approximately 975 donated toys from a previous women's basketball game to make the Holiday season a special for many disadvantaged kids.
