NABC Fundraiser Provides Three Families with Vehicles
April 19, 2016—The National Auto Body Council (NABC) hosted a golf fundraiser at Texas Star Golf Course near Dallas, April 7, an event that featured vehicle donations to three North Texas families through the NABC’s Recycled Rides program.
“We are elated with the support and collaboration for this regional fundraising and industry awareness event. The generosity and enthusiasm from so many of our industry partners underscores the true commitment to the National Auto Body Council’s mission to showcase the professionalism and integrity of the collision industry,” said Domenic Brusco, PPG Automotive Refinish and NABC chairman.
With Enterprise Rent-A-Car and 33 other industry leaders as sponsors, the event was one of several regional golf fundraisers by the NABC to increase awareness of its community service programs and provide NABC members and supporters with a fun and casual way to network while making a difference in the community.
Proceeds from the fundraiser will go to the NABC’s Recycled Rides program, the First Responder Emergency Extrication (FREE) program, and the Distracted Driving Initiative in cooperation with AT&T.
Three recently refurbished vehicles were presented by the NABC to three Dallas-area families. The vehicles were donated by State Farm and Allstate, repaired by Service King-Euless; Caliber Collision-Coleyville; and Toyota of Dallas, a Berkshire Hathaway Automotive company. Several NABC members also made contributions.
“Each one of us who witnessed the joy and relief as these families received keys to their new Recycled Rides vehicles are now even more committed to collaborating with our industry colleagues to make an impact in our local communities,” said Darren Huggins of Berkshire Hathaway Automotive and chair of the Dallas golf fundraiser. “The regional golf event was an opportunity for many individuals and organizations who previously were unaware of NABC’s programs to join the growing momentum generated by NABC members across the country.”
