Over $1,000 Raised for Local Veterans at Ruge’s Go Topless Event

Rhinebeck, New York…Ruge’s Automotive announced today that it raised over $1,000 for the American Legion Post 429 in Rhinebeck at its annual Jeep Go Topless Day on May 19th. The event, which celebrated its 7th year, attracted hundreds of guests as part of a nationwide family-friendly Jeep Go Topless Day tradition that is held in communities across the country.

According to its website, the American Legion was chartered and incorporated by Congress in 1919 as a patriotic veterans organization devoted to mutual helpfulness. It is the nation’s largest wartime veterans service organization, committed to mentoring youth and sponsorship of wholesome programs in our communities, advocating patriotism and honor, promoting strong national security, and continued devotion to fellow servicemembers and veterans. The benefactor chapter of this year’s Go Topless Day at Ruge’s is located on Montgomery Street in the Village of Rhinebeck.

“Our Ruge’s Jeep Go Topless Day event, which draws people from far and wide, gives us a perfect platform to raise awareness and funds to support our local Veterans. It makes the entire experience extra-meaningful for everyone involved; we are ever grateful to all who have served our country and this is one small way of expressing our appreciation for the sacrifices they have made to protect our freedoms. All of our colleagues, customers, and guests love being a part of that,” said Joe Monaco, Director of Sales and Marketing at Ruge’s Automotive.

A date for the 2020 Jeep Go Topless Day will soon be determined by the team at Ruge’s Automotive. To follow plans for the event, visit https://www.facebook.com/events/2150239518526609/.
