The Miami InternationalAuto Show presented byAlly has contributed nearly $400,000 to Ronald McDonald House Charities of South Florida through the years while the Fort Lauderdale International Auto Show has assisted in raising over $4 million for the Boys and Girls Clubs of Broward County since the show’s inception in 1991.
“Every one of our 190 members supports our association’s commitment to give back to the communities we live and work in,” said RichardA. Baker, president of the dealer group. “Through our annual auto shows, dealership events and other activities, we try to show our support for our neighbors.”
