Service King raises $25,000 for Helping a Hero
Oct. 12, 2012 – Service King Collision Repair Centers helped to raise $25,000 for the Helping a Hero Organization through a charity golf event in the San Antonio area.
Helping a Hero is a non-profit, non-partisan organization providing support for severely injured military personnel. Their principal activity is to provide specially adapted homes for qualifying service members, as well as engaging the community to provide services and resources for them and their families.
“This was our first tournament in San Antonio, and it was a huge success,” Jeremy Lennox, Vice President of the San Antonio market, said in a statement. “Our tournament came at a perfect time, as they are awarding a home to a double amputee in two weeks.”.
After the golf tournament, Service King had a live auction during a luncheon were local agents, vendors and staff bid on donated items to raise money for this cause. Some donated their live-auction items, so one hero could have his own “man cave” with some fantastic sports memorabilia.
Service King will hose its 18th annual Dallas / Fort Worth golf tournament on Oct. 22 to raise money for Interfaith Housing Coalition, the only Dallas agency that exclusively provides transitional housing for working poor families who are experiencing a housing crisis, 80 percent of whom consist of single mothers and their children.
Since hosting its first tournament in Dallas, 18 years ago, Service King has raised over $500,000 for local charities.
