Autotrader.com picks up the phone for TCC’s Women's Center


Autotrader.com staffers, left to right, Monica Vollmer, Mark Anderson and Clarissa Lynch accept a token of TCC’s appreciation from Mary Pat Liggio, college-wide coordinator of the Women’s Center.

NORFOLK, Va. – (March 25, 2005) – Working the phones comes naturally to the phone-a-thon team at Autotrader.com, as they recently talked up $2,145 in donations for TCC’s Women’s Center.

Through programming and counseling that range from career planning to parenting to budgeting, the Women’s Center helps women who are resuming or starting a college education. Through community partnerships, the center serves as a resource on women’s issues and works to promote an atmosphere where diversity, inclusiveness and equity are valued.

The Autotrader.com group plans to make the fundraiser an annual event.
