LOS ANGELES, December 3, 2018 -- Rusnak/Pasadena Audi in Old Town Pasadena is collecting holiday toys for Hillsides, a Southern California foster care and mental health charity.  Customers and visitors are invited to drop off unwrapped toys in collection boxes on display in the Audi showroom from now until December 24. 

“The Rusnak family has supported Hillsides for 20 years, and we are thrilled to be able to help provide children with a happy holiday,” said Elizabeth Rusnak Arizmendi, vice president of public relations for Rusnak Auto Group and a 2017 winner of a Hillsides Lifetime Achievement Award. “We have so many customers who want to give back, and it’s wonderful to be able to provide them with this opportunity.”

Hillsides serves 17,000 families and children throughout Southern California, many of them low-income. Without assistance from the community, families would not be able to afford holiday meals and presents for their children.

Rusnak/Pasadena Audi, the premier dealership for new and used Audis in greater Los Angeles, is located at 267 West Colorado Boulevard, Pasadena, CA  91105.   The dealership is a member of Rusnak Auto Group, which has 15 locations across Los Angeles County, Ventura County, and Orange County offering a variety of luxury vehicles including such brands as Audi, BMW, Jaguar, Mercedes-Benz, Maserati, Alfa Romeo, Porsche, Rolls-Royce, and Bentley.
