American Honda donated a NEW 2017 Acura NSX sports car and split the proceeds between the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation (PBTF) and Camp Southern Ground, started by Zack Brown the musician at the Barrett-Jackson car auction in Scottsdale on Friday night. The car was auctioned for $1,200,000 on Friday night so the PBTF will receive $600,000!
NASCAR racing team owner Rick Hendrick paid $1.2 million for this stunning car, VIN 001, to benefit the 2 children’s charities the PBTF and Camp Southern Ground.

Bob’s BMW is the proud “Chief” Sponsor of the second annual Riding with the Heroes. The Howard County Police Department and Howard County Department of Fire and Rescue Services are hosting this motorcycle ride to benefit Grassroots Crisis Intervention Center and the International Critical Incident Stress Foundation (ICISF).
These organizations have a tremendous impact in our local community as well as the public safety community. Grassroots serves our community with crisis intervention hotline programs, walk-in counseling, the Mobile Crisis Team, Day Resource Center, Homeless Shelter and much more. ICISF trains individuals in critical incident stress management and this training is the basis for our Critical Incident Stress Management Teams here in Howard County and around the world that respond to crisis situations and disasters, aiding our public safety employees in the aftermath.
These are very worthy non-profit organizations that need our help to continue to grow and expand their services. Bob’s BMW is a current and ongoing partner of Grassroots so we are thrilled to help promote this motorcycle ride fundraising event! We hope you will join us in this great event!
All participants will get a short sleeve event t-shirt and lunch. Pre registration is $25/Rider & $15/Passenger or you can register for $30/Rider & $20/Passenger the day of the event. Ride begins at Howard County Public Training Center at 9 a.m. sharp!

Everyone has heard of Black Friday and Cyber Monday, but what about #GivingTuesday?
The concept is simple. Basically, you’ve got to give it away to keep it, so after days of deal grabbing and shopping pandemonium, join this social movement that started in 2012 and give back!
Bob’s BMW is making a donation today to Grassroots Crisis Intervention Center, thanks to the overwhelmingly great response to our weekends sales (NOW extended through Friday!), and we ask you to join us on #GivingTuesday to help make a difference.
Bob’s BMW is an official collection center for Grassroots Crisis Intervention Center so if you are local, please on your next visit to Bob’s BMW bring in microwavable meals (not frozen!) and pop-top soups/stews to be donated to families in emergency shelters.
To learn more about Grassroots Crisis Intervention Center and/or make a monetary donation online today, CLICK HERE.
Not local? Another charity Bob’s BMW has supported for decades is The Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation. Each year this organization hosts motorcycle rides throughout the nation. You can make a donation online and be part of the solution to the problem of childhood brain tumors.
Thank you for your generosity and best wishes to you and your family this holiday season,
