A Cheyenne business is stepping up to help a worthy cause

CHEYENNE, Wyo. (KGWN)- A Cheyenne business is stepping up to help a worthy cause.

Through the month of October Tyrrell Honda and Chevrolet raised several thousand dolalrs for The American Cancer Society. For every car that was sold they donated $50 for a total of $7,000.

Business owner Dallas Tyrrell says raising money for The American Cancer Society is very special to him.

"My grandfather passed away about a week ago from cancer," Tyrrell said, "so its a near and dear cause for me and my family. It weighs into what we do and it came at a good time to be able to support a cause that effects us."

Over the last three years Tyrrell Honda and Chevrolet have raised a total of $30,000.
