Most people remember the events of July 7, 2016 in downtown Dallas. Twelve Dallas Police officers were shot, 5 were killed. The assassin was killed hours later after police sent a robot in that was equipped with a bomb.
The Dallas Police Department has an exceptional choir made up of 30 women and men officers. I got word last week that they were trying to go to Washington, D.C. in May to represent Dallas and perform during National Police Week. A story came out in the news that they were raising money for the trip and had put up a gofundme.com page. When I went to see where they were, they were $11,000 short, which I thought was a real tragedy.
I sent an email to my Dallas-Fort Worth dealers, asking them to join me in donating to this great cause. Within 12 hours, the money was committed and sent, putting them over the top.
I applaud the following dealerships; each one gave $1000 donation:
Five Star Ford Carrollton, Five Star Ford N. Richland Hills, Five Star Ford Lewisville, Five Star Ford Plano, Freeman Toyota, Rusty Wallis Honda, Don Davis Nissan/Lincoln, Freeman Mazda/Hyundai, Sewell Cadillac Dallas, and Park Place Mercedes Dallas.
Thank you, ladies and gentlemen, I am truly proud to have you on the Car Pro Show.
