It takes a community! - Daphne K

We can't express enough how truly grateful we are for the unwavering support that Hunter Subaru has shown us in making the 3rd Annual Jump Off Rock race a huge success. Without your generous contribution, we could not have continued this community tradition that brings together diverse groups of people, all with a shared goal of achieving their personal best through running. This year, we witnessed nearly 900 runners coming together on May 13th in Hendersonville, NC, each with their own unique story and driving force behind their participation in the race. It was truly inspiring to witness firsthand the dedication and enthusiasm that each and every participant brought to the table. Through Hunter Subaru's support, we were able to extend our efforts to giving back to the community by supporting four local non-profit organizations, including the YMCA of Hendersonville, Blue Ridge Humane Society, Friends of Laurel Park, and iDream Athletes Foundation. These organizations have been doing tremendous work in our community, providing essential services and support to those in need. We simply cannot thank Hunter Subaru enough for your generous contribution. Your partnership and support has touched the lives of so many, and we are thankful beyond words for the positive impact that you have made. We look forward to continuing this partnership and making a difference, not just through the Jump Off Rock race, but through our collective efforts to support our community. Thank you!

Taste of Asheville - Vanessa S

Asheville Independent Restaurants Association brought back their annual Taste of Asheville event to a packed house at AB Tech, sponsored by Hunter Subaru. The event is to help support small local business through a tasting and interactive event featuring all the local chefs, restaurants, and beverages. AIR is all about food in Asheville – delicious, locally-sourced, award-winning food. But we are also about making a difference in the kitchen, at the table, and in the community. We began in 2003 with the spark of an idea formulated by four local restaurant owners who believed that by working together, Asheville’s independent restaurants could create a culture of collaboration and stewardship unique in the industry. Today, our 13-member board leads an organization of 150+ members, making us the largest not-for-profit (501C-6) organization of our kind in the U.S.
