BOCA RATON, Fla. (Dec. 22, 2009) — The Auto Value/Bumper to Bumper automotive parts organization donated $15,000 to the Susan G. Komen for the Cure charity during the group's recent annual meeting in Boca Raton.
Proceeds were generated from companywide sales of a 1955 Fleetwood 60 Series Cadillac Die-Cast Collector 1:24 scale replica of the legendary pink sedan made famous by Elvis Presley.
For every car sold, a portion of the sales was given to the Susan G. Komen for the Cure organization. Monies raised coincided with the 25th anniversary of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month in October.
Kenny Payne, marketing board chairman of Auto Value/Bumper to Bumper, presented Maureen Brown from Susan G. Komen for the Cure with a check for $15,000 on Dec. 8 at the group's annual winter meeting.
Auto Value/Bumper to Bumper is part of Aftermarket Auto Parts Alliance Inc., which sells parts and offers automotive service through nearly 2,350 parts stores and more than 2,800 certified service centers throughout North America.
The winter meeting is one of two shareholder meetings held annually, the company said.
