Each year, at our Child Advocate Appreciation Luncheon, our CEO presents The Eagle Award. This award is given in recognition of an individual, company or group who has made a dramatic impact on the Center. We are thrilled to announce DFW Lexus Dealers as the recipient of this year's award.
One of the most highly anticipated moments of our annual Gala is the raffle drawing for a brand-new Lexus. This year's Gala, we will celebrate an exciting milestone - the
of the Lexus Car Raffle. Each year, DFW Lexus Dealers donate a brand new car for the raffle, and we sell 2,500 tickets for $50 each, to raise a total of $125,000 annually. This long-standing partnership has raised
to support the Center and the children we serve.
Some of the Lexus Dealers have also gotten more deeply involved in supporting the Center. They collect toys for the Holiday Project, and participate in the Adopt-A-Family project. They also help us promote Teddy Bear Ride among their staff, and have participated in our Healing Hearts Golf Tournament.
CEO Lynne McLean stated, "We are so grateful to the DFW Lexus Dealers for their passionate support of our mission, and their generous contributions that have made such a difference for our children. We simply could not do the work we do without corporate partners, and the DFW Lexus Dealers are an example of the best of the best. It is clear that the DFW Lexus Dealers have a deep and abiding commitment to the betterment of our community as a whole and making the future better for the children we serve is one of the ways they do this. There is no doubt that the commitment and generosity of the DFW Lexus Dealers has changed the lives, and the futures, of hundreds of children. And we are deeply grateful."
