12 local NAPA Auto Care Centers raise over $6,000 for the Portage County Humane Society!
On October 5, 2018, Dave Harvath, owner of D&D Auto presented a check to the Portage County Humane Society for $6,062.64. The funds were proceeds from the 2nd annual “Mechanics for Mutts” fundraiser event held on October 3,, 2018, at 12 local Napa Auto Care Centers comprised of the Auto Exchange, Auto Helpers, 2 locations of Auto Select, Auto Sense, Check’s Muffler, Daddio’s, Gary’s Service Center, K&S Auto, Premier Auto Body, Riverwest Motorwerks and of course Dave’s own shop D&D Automotive. The idea for this event came from Dave and his wife Anna as they were looking for a way to give back to the local community who has supported their business for over 29 years.
Each participating Auto Care Center was given the option of donating the proceeds from oil changes performed on the chosen day for the event or donating a percentage of that day’s sales. Local Napa Auto Parts stores owned by Scott Furgason contributed by providing parts for the oil changes at no cost to the Auto Care Centers who participated in this worthy event. The money raised was then presented in the form of a check to the Portage County Humane Society during their annual Pet Fest fundraising event.
This annual fundraiser was a huge success as it far surpassed the group’s goal of $5,000.00.
