During the month of August, Ballentine made a contribution to the organizations for each car sold, with each customer choosing where the money was directed. Patterson said, "Bal has helped Lander achieve fabulous things that could not have been done otherwise." He added, "We are thankful for his trust in Lander and we thank him for his generosity and his friendship."
