Land Rover partners with arts foundation to raise funds for inner city youth education
Irvine, California – Land Rover North America has announced a partnership with Rush Philanthropic Arts Foundation, as the platinum sponsor of the eighth annual Art for Life East Hampton benefit in New York on July 28. A special-edition 20th Anniversary Range Rover will be included in a silent auction to benefit the Foundation, which provides arts education for inner-city youth in New York City in the visual, written and performing arts.
Last year, the benefit raised nearly US$1.4 million to support the Foundation’s mission. The 20th Anniversary Range Rover, built to commemorate the first Range Rover sold in North America in 1987, is valued at US$145,000 and is one of 40 in the limited edition. It includes unique two-toned leather seats, custom pearlescent white paint, two-piece 20-inch wheels, personalized badges and matching watches.
