UPDATE: THANK YOU SO MUCH, WE WON!!!
Thanks to your clicks, the nonprofit nursing home that cares for my father will receive approximately $50,000 in corporate donations! And just to clarify, my stepmother does NOT KEEP THE CAR! This fundraiser was a method of advertising by Cadillac, but no, they are not giving away the cars! She just got to use it for a week and write about it.

My dad has a debilitating illness, called Multiple System Atrophy. He can no longer be cared for at home, and he resides in a skilled nursing center called The Pines of Sarasota, in Sarasota, Florida. The Pines gives very high quality care for people even after they have exhausted their resources. It is also a nonprofit which depends on private fundraising efforts.
My dad’s wife, Marjorie, has a great opportunity to raise funds for The Pines, but it depends on her getting clicks on an internet site. Can you help by clicking on her site, HERE?
Please read her story, below, then click on the link she gives. Please click often in the next few days! You will be treated to photos of Marjorie’s life as she drives a 2010 Cadillac SRX, a car she has been loaned for the purpose of getting people to read about!
2010 Cadillac SRX
and click often
Here is a photo of my Dad and Marjorie, taken about three years ago, before this illness struck. He and Marjorie love their dogs. The white dog in this photo is named Bentley, and he’s still an inseparable companion. Bentley can’t live with my Dad at the Pines, but he visits often, and he rides in the car with Marjorie. For this fundraiser, Marjorie is planning to write about her adventures in the SRX with Bentley along for the ride!
I have been given use of a 2010 Cadillac SRX for a week. The only “string” attached is that I blog about the SRX and my activities using it each day. I’m competing with seven other women in this region of Florida. Whoever gets the most clicks on their blog will win all the proceeds to benefit their charity.
I hope that you’ll find my blog to be interesting and that you’ll click on it frequently throughout the next few days to see what I’m up to, and to help me win the funds for my charity!
The charity I’ve chosen is The Pines of Sarasota. There is a very personal story behind my choice of The Pines.
My husband, Bill, has a catastrophic illness. After more than a year of home care, he now lives at The Pines. The Pines is a 61-year-old not for profit nursing center. It is home to several hundred folks who need rehabilitation and skilled nursing care. I have recently been elected to the corporate board of the Pines. I am donating (with your help) 100% of the charitable donation to them.
Our family can vouch for the top quality and compassionate care provided to all Pines residents regardless of ability to pay, including residents who have outlived their financial resources.
There are several matching donors. Thus, a lot is “riding” on your taking the time to see where the SRX and I are and what we are doing. Please, click often on the link http://www.srxdrivingforce.com/influencers/influencer.php?cn=mbroughton
The more clicks, the more chance we have of winning the competition and helping The Pines!
Thank you in advance for your support!
