Dollar Loan Center CEO Charles Brennan loves the Oakland Raiders. The long-time fan shared his enthusiasm for the team with one of his favorite local charities, Opportunity Village, this month in a new fundraising campaign.
“I want everyone to be as excited as I am about Raiders touchdowns, so I committed $100 for every touchdown the team scored during the regular season,” he said. “It was a great way to cheer on the team and raise money for this great organization.”
The Raiders scored 38 touchdowns during their regular football season, netting $3,800 to Opportunity Village. The donation follows a $15,000 donation Brennan made at the conclusion of Dollar Loan Center’s annual “Heat Is On” campaign in conjunction with Fox 5 News in Las Vegas.
“When you give from the heart, it can be a fun and rewarding experience,” said Linda Smith, chief development officer and associate executive director for Opportunity Village. “Charles and Dollar Loan Center set a great example for others to find fun ways to give. We appreciate him and all that he does for our organization.”
Brennan is a well-known philanthropist, giving more than $200,000 every year to deserving charities across the country. His local efforts include support of Opportunity Village and the Henderson Little League, among many others.
