As part of the "Share the Love" Event, Colonial Subaru is pleased to announce raising $45,000 for Ability Beyond, a leading nonprofit that provides services and programs to individuals with disabilities in Connecticut and New York. Colonial Subaru ranked 10 out of 600 Subaru dealerships across the country for raising money for our designated local charity. The "Share the Love" event has been going on annually for the last seven years raising close to $50 million dollars for selected nonprofit organizations throughout the nation. 

This year, Colonial Subaru proudly selected Ability Beyond as our local non-profit beneficiary. As a 
selected non-profit, Ability Beyond was one of five organizations that customers could choose to direct a $250 donation from Subaru when purchasing a car during our five week long sales event. "We selected Ability Beyond as our local charity because of the difference they make in the community," said David Beylouni, President of Colonial Automobile Group. "This organization has a contagious passion for making life better for people and you just want to help in any way you can." Darren Beylouni, Vice President of Danbury Automobile Group, has been a member of the Board of Trustees of Ability Beyond for the past five years playing an active role in fundraising for the organization by bringing key donors and facilitating lasting partnerships for Ability Beyond. "We are extremely grateful that Colonial Subaru chose Ability Beyond as their local charity organization for Subaru's "Share the Love" event," said David Cappiello, Vice President of Development and Community Outreach. "The Beylouni family continues to be a generous and avid supporter of our organization and we are fortunate to have them as a community partner." 

Ability Beyond has grown to serve 78% more people in the past four years. Ability Beyond is a 501{c} (3) organization headquartered in Bethel, Conn. and Mount Kisco, N.Y. It provides a wide range of services for over 2,500 people with a disability that inhibits their activities of daily living -- including numerous residential alternatives, employment training, career counseling, job placement services, cognitive and life skills instruction, clinical and therapeutic support, and volunteer and recreational activities. Today, Ability Beyond's servics extend far beyond the Danbury community into much of Connecticut and the Hudson Valley, New York. For more information about Ability Beyond go to www.abilitybeyond.org.
