Rodin Younessi Donates to Susan G. Komen for the Cure of Breast Cancer Charity
Rodin Younessi is the proud owner of a Lamborghini dealership in Palm Beach, FL, as well as a string of some of the most high-volume Harley-Davidson dealerships in the country. In addition to sponsoring organizations in competitive races, Mr. Younessi also regularly gives back to his community through donations, such as his latest gift to the Susan G. Komen cancer charity auction.
Rodin Younessi has been a longtime fan of motorsports and began a racing career––entering competitions driving both sports cars and motorcycles––before eventually owning his own motorsports dealerships.
Today, Mr. Younessi owns and manages some of the most successful Harley-Davidson dealerships in America, including the Los Angeles Harley-Davidson of Anaheim in Fullerton, California. He also owns and operates the Space Coast Harley-Davidson, Treasure Coast Harley-Davidson, Raging Bull Harley-Davidson and Falcons Fury Harley-Davidson of Georgia.
Just a few weeks ago, Rodin Younessi donated a brand-new Harley-Davidson motorcycle to the Susan G. Komen for the Cure of Breast Cancer charity. Presented at the associated auction, the Harley-Davidson helped raise awareness and funds for research to eventually help all women overcome breast cancer.
“People might think that donating a motorcycle is pretty unorthodox for a charity event,” says Rodin Younessi, “but our Harley-Davidson products are top-notch and have high value on their own outside the auction. We were able to raise awareness and plenty of funds through our donation.”
Cure of Breast Cancer Charity
The charity was chaired by Nancy Brinker, the former US Ambassador to the United Nations, and was deemed a high success. However, his contribution was recognized as one of the highest benefactors involved in the entire charity. As well as donating a sleek and shining motorcycle for the cause, Rodin Younessi also paid for and brought Kerri Kasem (Casey Kasem’s daughter) to promote his donation for the highest bid at the charity auction in Palm Beach.
Before his involvement with the Susan G. Komen for the Cure of Breast Cancer charity, Rodin Younessi donated a motorcycle to local Palm Beach area law enforcement. The retrofitted motorcycle was specifically designed for their agency by Rodin. The dedicated team at Space Coast Harley to be a worthy contribution to their fleet.
Mr. Younessi’s donation supports law enforcement efforts to protect the community (as it’s a high-functioning patrol vehicle),. But it will also appear at events, parades and more as a worthy centerpiece for the department.
As a motorsports fan, Rodin Younessi has raced in nationally-recognized, high-profile competitions for years. In 2011, he competed in the U.S. F2000 National Championship for Pabst Racing Services as well as the JDC Motorsports National Class. He finished the National Class at 12th overall in the second race at Road America. In addition, Younessi brought together a team of drivers to race in the Firestone Indy Lights series. And even though he stays busy between races, dealerships, and various investments, Mr. Younessi still regularly supports his local community and national charities.
