Four Groups Donate Combined $100,000 to University of Aftermarket Foundation
Oct. 6, 2015—Four major program groups have joined together to donate $100,000 to the University of the Aftermarket Foundation in memory of Jack Creamer, industry icon and former vice chairman of the University of the Aftermarket Foundation.
Creamer passed away March 25 at the age of 84.
The Aftermarket Auto Parts Alliance, Automotive Distribution Network, Federated Auto Parts and National Pronto Association each contributed $25,000 to honor Creamer.
The combined donation reached the Lifetime Trustee contribution level, meaning a new trustee will be appointed to the University of the Aftermarket Foundation board. The individual named will be the reigning “Jack Creamer Leader of the Year” award recipient. The newly named award will be presented at the 2015 Automotive Warehouse Distributors Association (AWDA) awards ceremony on Nov. 1 in Las Vegas.
“It is a testament to Jack’s reputation and legacy that these four competitors have come together to honor him,” said David Segal, vice chairman of the University of the Aftermarket Foundation Contribution Committee. “We want to thank them for their generosity and continued commitment to the betterment of the auto care industry. They know what a difference Jack made throughout his career and are committed to continuing his great work.”
