Drive To Remember has successfully completed it's fourth annual automotive event, which took place on July 13th of 2019. Since our first year, I have personally seen a growing interest in the community for this event and I'm absolutely thrilled with the results! 2019 was a big year for us because we organized this event with the intent of raising the bar. Thanks to our dedicated sponsors, we were able to succeed in more ways than one! First and foremost, we are incredibly thankful for the Cadillac V-Club! Mike Franks, the President of the club, has rallied his members to support our event for three years in a row. For 2019, they came in with full force as our HEADLINE SPONSOR and displayed a beautiful collection of various Cadillac V-Performance vehicles. We have a lot to be thankful for from these individuals because of their travels and genuine display of support.
We also received continued support from repeat sponsors Thirty Three Auto Clean, Perfection Correction LLC, Longview Diesel & Performance, Patterson Nissan of Longview, Capital One Bank, Colors on Parade and the Longview Nursing and Rehabilitation Center. This shows us that we are building healthy relationships with local businesses who see the value in our mission. On top of this continued support, we also gained Sugar Magnolia Properties, One Stop Automotive, Vera Bank and The Cammack Family Welch Funeral Home as new sponsors!
The sponsors, private donations, apparel sales and general admission fees allowed us to raise more funds than we have from previous events. With that being said, we donated $12,000 to the East Texas Alzheimer's Alliance, which provides resources and support for those suffering from Alzheimer's in our local community. This is exactly why Drive To Remember exists. We want to make a positive difference in our local community by bringing people together for a common goal. We strive to provide awareness of what Alzheimer's disease actually is so that we can eliminate the common misconceptions that inaccurately represent this horrible disease. Drive To Remember will continue to fight for this cause and we look forward to future success with our growing team of supporters!
Thank you, to all of our sponsors, supporters and representatives that help make this a successful journey.
