Our dealer members are much more than just places to buy cars. As local businesses, they provide employment opportunities, pay taxes to fund local and state governments, and are also partners in a variety of charitable endeavors and organizations. This past week, two of our members took part in some awesome fundraising events to benefit the communities in which they operate.
Last Sunday, July 31, Bethel-Tate High School held a charity golf outing to benefit it’s athletics department. GCADA member Beechmont Toyota was the hole-in-one sponsor, giving participants the chance to win a two-year lease is they sank a a designated hole-in-one! We checked in with Bethel-Tate’s athletic director to see how the event went and he let us know that while no sank the hole-in-one, they did end up raising enough money to pay for four teams worth of uniforms and equipment!
The 39th Annual Delhi Skirt Game was held on Friday, August 5. A local tradition with a long history, this charity event where men dress up in skirts to play softball benefits families in need in the Delhi Township. Walt Sweeney Ford has been involved in the event for a number of years, which always draws a lot of attention both for the unique festivities around the event, and all the good it does in the Delhi Township community.
These are two fine examples of how our members work to invest in the communities they serve. As an association, all our members take part in the upcoming Safe Travel for Kids!! campaign, which works to raise awareness and educate parents and caregivers on child passenger safety.
