For many years now, the employees of Classic Chevrolet have been involved with GRACE and our community on multiple levels, always supported and encouraged by owner Tom Durant. Seven years ago, Tom and Susan Durant put out the challenge for the employees to “raise as much as they could” and they would personally match it dollar for dollar. In 2012, a committee was formed by the employees of Classic Chevrolet to take their fund raising efforts to the next level, thus began their annual golf tournament.
In 2014, Classic Chevrolet lost a long time employee and family member, Steve Thompson, who worked as General Sales Manager for the “Thompson Group” Fleet and Commercial Sales department. Renaming the golf tournament “The Steve Thompson – Classic” seemed like an appropriate way to honor our friend who embodied the meaning of giving to others. Following Mr. Durant’s motto – “To be the best at everything we do” – they have watched their fundraising efforts increase year after year.
The past years of funds raised, including both Classic’s employee contributions and the annual golf tournament, are as follows: 2012 – $118,500 | 2013 – $126,500 | 2014 – $182,600 | 2015 – 200,974 | 2016 – 210,000 | 2017 – 220,000 | 2018 – 250,000 | Total – $1,308,574
Tom and Susan Durant $1,308,574 Grand Total – $2,617,148
With the generous participation of you, Classic Chevrolet’s partners and vendors, and community leaders, we all believe 2019 can be an incredible year for making a difference in the lives of those in need!
