LOS ANGELES (May 13, 2016)The LAGRANT Foundation (TLF) is pleased to announce an exciting new opportunity that will financially support its mission to increase the number of ethnic minorities in the fields of advertising, marketing and public relations. Chevrolet is donating a 2017 Volt for a raffle campaign that starts today. 

The vehicle will be awarded to one lucky raffle ticket holder. One Hundred percent of the proceeds will be used to support the funding of TLF’s programs, which include scholarships, internships/entry-level jobs, mentorships, as well as career and professional development workshops.
 
Tony Cervone, a TLF board member and senior vice president of Global Communications at General Motors, was instrumental in connecting TLF with the Chevrolet brand. Cervone is a firm believer in TLF’s mission and has served as a mentor and advocate for many students, including Darri’n Hardy, who recently accepted a position with Chevy Communications after a successful internship with the brand.
 
“Diversity is such a vital component to the advancement of our industry,” said Cervone. “We think the Chevrolet Volt was a particularly fitting donation because it embodies the forward thinking of TLF, and is reflective of the sustainable talent pipeline the organization is building for diverse individuals in communications.”
 
Raffle tickets will be on sale now through November 30, 2016. The winner of the raffle will be selected at a drawing in Los Angeles on December 8, 2016.
