On Thursday, May 18, the Greater Cincinnati Automobile Dealers Association (GCADA) donated $1,000 to support The Dragonfly Foundation. The donation was made at Stonelick Township Fire Department in front of the Dragonfly Fire Truck.
The Dragonfly Foundation is a nonprofit working to support young cancer and bone marrow transplant patients and their families. Each year volunteers from Stonelick Township Fire Department help to raise money for the foundation at the Cincinnati Auto Expo, where participants can see the Dragonfly Firetruck in the Safe Travel Family Zone.
The funds for the grant were jointly contributed by GCADA and the National Automobile Dealers Association (NADA) Foundation. The Dragonfly Foundation was selected by GCADA as the grant recipient because of their impact on the families of patients at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital, GCADA’s charitable partner.
“As an ambassador of the NADA Foundation, we are proud to present this grant in support of the important work of The Dragonfly Foundation,” said GCADA President Tom Fiehrer. “The Dragonfly Foundation has raised funds at the Auto Expo for several years, and this grant allows us to further step up our support of children and families facing tough medical and financial challenges.”
