CAWA, which represents the automotive parts industry, has announced that Motorcar Parts of America (MPA) will once again be the exclusive sponsor of its 2021 dinner gala in conjunction with the annual AAPEX and SEMA trade shows being held in Las Vegas. The annual event is the highlight of the year for the association, and is dedicated to raising funds for the association’s scholarship programs.
The gala will be held on Sunday, Oct. 31, at the Venetian Hotel in Las Vegas.
“Motorcar Parts of America is committed to the auto care industry, and we are delighted to once again sponsor this year’s gala and recognize the important role of CAWA in supporting automotive aftermarket students and our future leaders,” said Selwyn Joffe, chairman, president and CEO of Motorcar Parts of America.
All proceeds from the event will benefit the CAWA Memorial Scholarship Fund, which promotes quality and high standards through education within the auto care industry. These coveted scholarships are awarded to: (1) students in a curriculum leading to a degree or certificate in an accredited college, university or technical institute; and (2) automotive high school teachers to assure their programs remain viable and contemporary.
“We are pleased that Motorcar Parts of America will sponsor this year’s gala and appreciate their support over the past several years,” said Mike Mohler, chair of the CAWA board of directors. “Their gracious support allows the association to garner the financial support necessary to continue granting scholarships to future associates in the auto care industry and to support automotive teachers at the high school level.”
