Press release from Finn Partners:

Bridgestone Retail Operations (Bridgestone), a subsidiary of Bridgestone Americas, will surprise Club kids and families on Tuesday, November 2, when they unveil a new passenger van donated to Boys & Girls Club of Henderson County. The special ceremony will feature remarks from Boys & Girls Club of Henderson County and Bridgestone representatives. Afterwards, Club kids will be invited to explore the new Club vehicle.
