Most recently, the dealership hosted a benefit to raise money for the cause.
A Night at the Pinnacle
On Tuesday, Sept. 27 at The Pinnacle in Maumee, Ohio, Paul and Thomas were celebrated for their charitable work and donations towards the National Multiple Sclerosis Society Ohio Buckeye Chapter. The banquet began with appetizers and light cocktails as local contributors, family and friend bid in a silent auction, which was made possible thanks to donations from local businesses.
This was followed by dinner and dessert, where several guest speakers took the stage to educate the audience about MS, how it affected their lives, and what they did to overcome. The event came to an end with the announcement that it had raised over $60,000 between the silent auctions and anonymous contributions, proving a huge success for the National Multiple Sclerosis Society Ohio Buckeye Chapter.
