His mission is compelling: "Love One Another". The Wellness Committee at Village Automotive Group invited Allan Law, also known as,The Sandwich Man, to speak to the employees of Village Automotive Group. Like most who hear his selfless story of consistently bringing food and showing compassion to over 1,500 people in Minneapolis every day, Lexus of Maplewood was inspired. To help support Allan's efforts, we will be collecting coins for bus tokens and new socks to donate for the homeless.
Lexus of Maplewood!
When asked what motivates Allan, he explains, "Because I care..and this is what I believe God put me here to do each and every day...for the rest of my life."

|Champions for Charity|
|Those with a passion for golf can appreciate the qualities of balance, grace, and precision - words that aptly describe Lexus automobiles. Those who play the game also appreciate the virtues of competition, generosity, and charity - all of which can be found in the Lexus Champions for Charity golf series. Beginning with 63 events in 1989, Lexus Champions for Charity has helped raise over $250 million for charity. This year, the growing series aspires to raise even more money at almost 200 events nationwide. Lexus Champions for Charity pairs great golf with charity, as amateur golfers participate in tournaments held at the finest golf and country clubs throughout the United States. |
Lexus supports the local tournaments by donating $500 to each associated charity and offers competitors the opportunity to win a Lexus and represent their charity in the annual grand finale, the Lexus Champions for Charity National Championship at Pebble Beach Resorts in December.
Our Champions for Charity Hole in One Tournament was held on Monday, July 29th for the United Hospital Golf Classic at the White Bear Yacht Club.

>Lexus of Wayzata and Lexus of Maplewood are excited to partner with the Make-A-Wish Foundation at its Wish Ball this year.
The evening was a tremendous success. The Wish Ball, held on the evening of March 3, 2012, was a magical and fabulous evening for the Make-A-Wish Foundation of Minnesota. More than 800 of Make-A-WishÂ® supporters came together in a celebration of 30 years of wishes come true.
Guests enjoyed a fabulous gourmet dinner and the soul-stirring sounds of The Steeles, Minnesota's first family of gospel and soul. The spacious Saint Paul RiverCentre was filled with rows of one-of-a-kind silent auction items. Of note were the Monique Lhullier Fashion Week Runway Show, a 2012 Polaris TV 550 Sportsman and wish-inspired necklace designed by wish child Kennedy and Sara Beth Goldfine of SBG Designs.
The highlight of the evening was wish child Kennedy's dazzling ballet performance with the Saint Paul City Ballet. Kennedy's wish to meet real ballerinas came true last December. Learn more about Kennedy and how her wish to meet real ballerinas gave her joy and illuminated some of her darkest days in her video story.
Guests offered their generous support of this year's Wish Ball helping raise approximately $650,000 to help grant more wishes for Minnesota children battling life-threatening medical conditions.
Save the date for next year's Wish Ball set for May 18 at the Saint Paul RiverCentre!
