MECHANICSVILLE, VA —Camp Mak-A-Dream needs a bus, and two lucky raffle ticket winners will get to see some very fast cars, as the collision industry once again steps on the gas to serve those in need.
The new bus is for the children and young adults with active cancer attending Camp Mak-A-Dream, a long-standing beneficiary of the generosity of the collision industry. The bus will need to be specially equipped and cost into the six-figure range.
Corporate sponsors have jump-started the effort, which officially began July 1, 2005. Organizers hope the effort continues to pick up speed at the upcoming CIC and I-CAR meetings in Scottsdale, AZ next week.
“I want to thank our corporate sponsors who have shown their commitment to this project. These leaders realize projects such as this enable us to work together to feel good about who we are, what we do, and give back to the community at large,” said Karen Fierst, Project Chairman.
The effort is endorsed by the National Auto Body Council (NABC) and is one of various fundraisers administered by the Collision Industry Foundation (CIF).
