Better World Club: Here's A Wedding Present Because We Didn't Think You'd Ever Get Married!
PORTLAND, Ore., June 23 /PRNewswire/ -- Gay couples who marry this summer
can drive off with something more than just a marriage certificate: a free
membership from Better World Club. "It's our wedding gift to them," announced
Better World Club, the only auto/roadside assistance club dedicated to
preserving the environment.
On May 15, California's Supreme Court ruled that same-sex couples had the
right to marry. Today marks the start of the first full week of such marriage
ceremonies, as well as the one-week anniversary of the first marriages
conducted since the ruling.
Better World Club is giving the newlyweds a wedding present. They can
obtain a free roadside assistance membership from the world's most innovative

will give the same reduction to domestic partners. It will even offer
opposite-sex couples the same wedding present. "Gay marriage is good for
everyone, so we're including all the June brides ... grooms ... spouses ...
whatever!" says Rofsky.
Before Better World Club, gay and lesbian couples had an unattractive
choice to make when joining the roadside assistance clubs used by millions of
Americans: either pretend they were heterosexual couples by not disclosing one
partner's last name or pay for an additional primary membership. Virtually
from its inception, BWC has enabled gay and lesbian couples to obtain roadside
assistance, use their actual names, and sign up for one membership at the
reduced prices available to all.
