CINCINNATI - The Cincinnati Zoo will be presented with a new Prius V Tuesday after being named a winner in Toyota’s “100 Cars for Good.”
The national philanthropic program is awarding 100 cars to 100 nonprofits from a recently-completed 100-day contest.
Each day, during the duration of the contest, five non-profit organizations from across the U.S. were profiled on the 100 Cars for Good Facebook page where the public could vote for their favorite organization. The organization with the most votes at the end of the day won a new Toyota vehicle while the four runners-up each day received a $1,000 cash grant from Toyota.
Winners were selected from May to August through public voting on Facebook at www.100carsforgood.com .
In total, 100 new Toyota vehicles and $400,000 in cash grants are being awarded to non-profit organizations across the country.
Cincinnati Zoo and Toyota officials will be on hand at 2 p.m. at the Joseph Toyota dealership in Cincinnati for the formal presentation of the new hybrid vehicle.
