Austin Hatcher Foundation, AutoZone, AutoCoz and Goodguys Team Up For ‘Save $5, Give $5’ Fundraising Initiative

CHATTANOOGA, TENN.(Nov. 2,2015) – Automotive heavyweights AutoZone, Shell/ Pennzoil and Goodguys Rod & Custom Association are partnering with the Austin Hatcher Foundation for Pediatric Cancer for an innovative autumn fundraiser.

Goodguys Rod & Custom Association will join AutoCoz – an organization that empowers and assists car clubs and car enthusiasts in charitable fundraising – and AutoCoz client Shell/Pennzoil for the “Save $5, Give $5” effort that will run from Nov. 2-Dec. 24.

Efforts will be geared toward directing consumers to save5.AutoCoz.com to download a coupon for $5 off Pennzoil Platinum motor oil, redeemable at participating AutoZone locations.  In addition to the discount, $5 will be donated by Pennzoil/AutoCoz with each purchase of Pennzoil Platinum® motor oil to the Austin Hatcher Foundation, of Goodguys Rod & Custom Association.

Goodguys, which has partnered with the Foundation on a variety of events this year, is the world’s largest hot rod association with more than 70,000 active members worldwide.

“For the Foundation, this ‘Save $5, Give $5’ initiative is about raising awareness for our mission – to erase the effects of pediatric cancer – and raising funds to support our mission,” said Foundation President Amy Jo Osborn.

“We continue to be fortunate to be aligned with fantastic partners that are very strong not only in the automotive industry and well beyond. Goodguys has been that sort of partner throughout 2015. And to be aligned now with a major recognizable brand like Shell/Pennzoil fueled by the fundraising assistance of AutoCoz, is just a perfect way to cap an outstanding year for us.”
