The National Alliance of Buy-Here, Pay-Here Dealers, Manheim and the National Independent Automobile Dealers Association are all rallying during the East Coast BHPH Conference that begins on Monday to help operators still impacted by hurricane damage.
Officials from NABD and Manheim confirmed with AuSM on Friday that a golf cart will be auctioned off by the staff from Manheim Orlando during the conference with the proceeds benefitting NIADA Foundation’s Hurricane Harvey relief campaign.
Officials said the item will be at Manheim’s conference booth, and the sale will take place during Tuesday evening’s networking session.
NABD also highlighted that operators who can’t get away from their stores for all three days of the conference can attend for at least a day. Dealers can gain important training, industry updates and networking opportunities for just $150 on Monday, $250 on Tuesday or $100 on Wednesday. To learn more, call (832) 767-4759.
And in the process, attendees can help NIADA’s philanthropic efforts.
The Disaster Relief Fund was established by the NIADA Foundation to provide a venue for members of the National Independent Automobile Dealers Association and its industry partners to assist fellow dealers and others in the automotive community affected by the recent storms.
The NIADA Foundation is a non-profit 501(c)(3) charitable organization that serves as the focal point of NIADA’s charitable efforts and coordinates the association’s charitable giving.
Perhaps the bidding for this golf cart will generate at least a portion what conference exhibitor gave recently as Spireon contributed $100,000 to NIADA’s charity arm.
The NIADA Foundation will continue to fund hurricane relief efforts in the coming months.
