Mitsubishi Owner’s Day Proceeds to Benefit Charities
Each year, Mitsubishi holds two Mitsubishi Owners Day (MOD) events where thousands of Mitsubishi owners and car enthusiasts from all over the United States gather to celebrate the brand (or, more likely, what it used to be), show off their vehicles, and enjoy a variety of games as well as food, prizes, raffles, and live DJs.
While the West Coast Mitsubishi Owner’s Day took place on July 8 at the company’s North American headquarters in Cypress, California, the East Coast Mitsubishi Owner’s Day took place less than two weeks ago on August 19 at the Citizens Bank Park in Philadelphia.

Even more recently, Mitsubishi announced donation details on funds raised at both events, revealing that all proceeds made at the West Coast MOD were donated to Second Harvest Food Bank of Orange County while the money raised at the East Coast MOD were donated to the Wounded Warriors Project.
The Second Harvest Food Bank of Orange County helps feed 250,000 hungry people throughout Orange County while the Wounded Warriors Project focuses on empowering injured veterans and their families.
Over 5,000 people and vendors were in attendance at both events, who not only celebrated the Japanese auto manufacturer but also its 100th anniversary, so quite a bit of money would have been raised.
“Both of these influential organizations work to improve the well-being of their respective communities,” said Don Swearingen, executive vice president and chief operating officer, MMNA. “Mitsubishi Motors is committed to giving back and we trust that the donations made will help further their efforts.”
