RV Learning Center Chairman Jeff Pastore and the Pastore family pledged $5,000 to the RV Learning Center during its 2013 annual campaign.
According to a press release, the fundraiser is aimed at securing the “resources needed to keep pace with training and education needs for RV dealers and staff in a challenging but growing economy.”
The new pledge by Pastore, owner of Hartville RV Center in Ohio, raises the dealership’s lifetime pledge to $15,500.
“As chairman of the RV Learning Center board, Jeff Pastore has shown his dedication to continuing education many times over just in the time and energy he devotes to its success,” said Recreation Vehicle Dealer Association President Phil Ingrassi. “The Pastore family’s pledge increase is an extension of Jeff’s already overwhelming commitment to the RV Learning Center and all the good it does to improve our industry work force.”
The fundraising drive for 2013 kicked off at the RVDA Convention/Expo in October and continues through the end of June.
RVDA said that donating is easier this year with the addition of a web page for online donations and the convenience of a printable form that allows a variety of pledging options and customized payment plans to meet donor needs. All donors receive a lapel pin and active donors of $100 or more will be recognized in a listing appearing monthly in RV Executive Today and on the RVDA website.
