Each year the staff at Classic Chevrolet gather for their annual Employee Thanksgiving Luncheon to honor accomplishments for the year and recognize community charity efforts in a special presentation.

Proceeds from The Steve Thompson Classic Annual Charity Golf Tournament are gifted, along with a dollar-for-dollar match by gracious owners Tom and Susan Durant.

The Classic Chevrolet family in Grapevine has always embraced a business model that emphasizes benevolence and community involvement, fostering a culture of continued employee giving and engagement with local causes.

Inspired by Classic Chevrolet owner Tom Durant’s who meets his own challenge to “raise as much money as we can”, the Steven Thompson Classic has raised nearly half a million dollars, all of which have been matched by the Durant family.

GRACE was among the recipients to receive a portion of proceeds, which provides a $3,200 to operate programming.

Creating a giving culture with their employees and their leadership examples allow organizations like GRACE to serve families during a time when things seem bleak. We are encouraged by their generosity, and thankful that for support ensures no family in our community will have to face crisis alone.
