Westlake Financial Services Sponsored the Seventh Annual Ride for Autism

Los Angeles, CA – On Saturday, August 2, 2014, Westlake Financial Services sponsored the 2014 Ride for Autism, an annual event in which motorcyclists gather to raise awareness for autism. More than 400 bikers rode their motorcycles 60 miles along Pacific Coast Highway starting in Baldwin Park, CA and ending in Calabasas, CA. The event raised a total of $19,605 to support research on autism. This year, Westlake Financial Services donated $1,000 and held a 50/50 raffle that raised an additional $560. As a sponsor of the event, Westlake also provided give-a-ways and volunteers for the event as well as motorcyclists.“As President of Ride for Autism and a very proud Westlake Financial Services employee, I want to thank Westlake Financial Services and all of my Westlake Family for your support and donations,” stated Rosa Bowles, Servicing Supervisor at Westlake Financial Services. “We are only successful because of the generosity and selflessness of others.”
Ride for Autism is a group that consists of only volunteers who are dedicated to raising funds for non-profit organizations directly involved with the Autism Spectrum Disorder. The Grand Marshall of the Seventh Annual Ride for Autism was Dean McDermott, an avid motorcyclist and celebrity.
