NEENAH (WLUK) -- A local automotive dealership has donated more than $2 million to Make-A-Wish Wisconsin over the past 18 years.

Last month, Bergstrom Automotive raised $164,604 during its annual Drive for Dreams campaign that raises money to grant the wishes of local children struggling with critical illnesses.

"Thank you to our guests, business partners, team and the people of these great communities for supporting Make-A-Wish through our Drive for Dreams campaign,” said Tim Bergstrom, president and chief operating officer of Bergstrom Automotive. “We’re honored to work alongside and support the Make-A-Wish Wisconsin team each year as they help seriously ill children and their families throughout the communities we serve.”

During the campaign, the company donated $5 for every test drive taken and each new fan on social media.

It also held a special oil change day on April 21, offering free oil changes with a donation of $15 or more to Make-A-Wish Wisconsin.

The company says it completed more than 1,600 oil changes that day.
