This year we are truly blessed to be able to include two charities with Detail Fest. As most all of you know we have been raising money for Operation Comfort- Wounded Warriors organization. And in October we got to go to the Automotivation Program and film with them for the SPEED channel.
Great group of guys and we are blessed enough to have one as a forum member!
Max didn’t want them to miss out on Detail Fest so we are bringing in three individuals from Operation Comfort to join us for the Detail Fest weekend.

Our other organization that we will have at Detail Fest is Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS).

Recently, a close friend of the Autogeek family was diagnosed with Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma, a type of blood cancer. Jim has been the master of ceremonies at the last three Detail Fests.

Jim is one of an estimated 137,260 Americans to be diagnosed with leukemia, lymphoma or myeloma this year alone according to the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. LLS is the world's largest voluntary health organization dedicated to funding blood cancer research, education, and patient services. Their mission is to cure these diseases and improve the quality of life of patients and their families.

It gives me great pleasure to tell all of you that we have the best group of vendors you can ask for. All of our vendors are making donations to these two great groups! Thank you everyone, it really means a lot to all of us at Autogeek but Operation Comfort and LLS really appreciate your donations and support.

I would like to thank Autogeek for their continued support of organizations to help fight cancer. I was diagnoised with Myeloma a few years ago and I will be going to every vendor at Detail Fest and personally thanking them for their donation to help fight this worthy cause. :dblthumb2:
