Every October, The Auto Shop in Jefferson City takes part in a special offer called "Brakes For Breasts." Brakes for Breasts is more than a promotion. It’s an organization that unites the hands of Independent Auto Repair Shops across Jefferson City and the entire country for the common good: finding a cure for breast cancer in our lifetime, started by a woman named Leigh Anne Best. Brakes for Breasts supports Dr. Vincent Tuohy’s research efforts to develop a Breast Cancer Vaccine and his prevention philosophy. Our industry stands united to put the Brakes on Breast Cancer!
During October, The Auto Shop provides our Jefferson City customers with free brake pads. Free. You pay for the labor and any other parts that your vehicle may need, and we cover the brake pads. The Auto Shop then donates 10% of what we make on labor and other parts to the Breast Cancer Vaccine Fund. Additionally, we include the usual free digital vehicle inspection to evaluate any additional needs your vehicle may have, short-term or long-term.
In summary, our clients get free brake pads to protect them through the year and a complimentary vehicle inspection. You get the satisfaction of knowing your vehicle is safer and a chance to arrange additional work for you (if your car is legitimately in need). And breast cancer research gets 10% of the proceeds. Everyone wins as we work towards finding a cure. From the Brakes For Breasts official website:
The American Cancer Society estimates that in 2019 there will be over 271,000 people diagnosed with Breast Cancer, and over 42,000 will die. With those numbers, it’s hard to find anyone untouched by Breast Cancer. Although treatment is better than it’s ever been, why do we wait until it happens to treat it – Let’s stop it before it happens. Many of you have lost a loved one to this horrible disease – or maybe you are the one fighting or the one helping a loved one fight.
Brakes for Breasts is about HOPE, and that’s an idea we can get behind at The Auto Shop. We think of ourselves as a family taking care of families in Jefferson City. Bring your vehicle into The Auto Shop this October to take advantage of free brake pads and help out a great cause! Please make a reservation today! You’ll find our shop at 612 Missouri Boulevard Court, Jefferson City, MO, 65109. Our shop hours are Monday through Friday, 7:30 AM - 5:30 PM. You Auto-know, and you always will-- that’s the Auto Shop guarantee!
The ride is always better, when you Brake For Breasts!
