O’Connors Named United Way Business of the Month
O’Connor’s is very active in the community throughout Chippewa County, United Way reported. The company is a long time supporter of the Chippewa County Community Foundation, sponsoring the annual Dueling Piano’s event for many years as well as the Winter Wine Down.
The company’s first Back To School Test Drive Event in August also demonstrated community support, United Way pointed out, as games and refreshments were set up at the dealership and O’Connor’s gave away free backpacks and school supplies to area children.
At that event, Barry O’Connor stepped into a dunk tank, where participants were able to make a donation for a chance to drop him in the water, raising over $400 for Eastern Upper Peninsula Special Olympics.
