The Greater Sacramento New Car Dealers Association is putting up a significant amount of money to help Shriners Hospitals for Children.
The association announced they will give one million dollars over ten years for pediatric research. The announcement will formally be made at a press conference around 11 a.m. Tuesday.
The president of the New Car Dealers Association, John Driebe, said, “We just feel that with the wonderful work Shriners does in the community that they were an amazing choice for us to get behind.”
The funds for the endowment come from auto show proceeds, which is used for many charitable organizations in addition to Shriners.
