A raffle for a retro-mod 1966 Mustang, combined with 911 Collision
Centers’ Community Foundation’s annual Make-A-Dent charity golf tournament held May 6 in
Tucson, netted $70,000 for two youth organizations in the Tucson area.

Michael
Quinn, event chair and co-founder of 911 Collision Centers, said that the
proceeds will be shared by the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation of Southern Arizona and
Big Brothers Big Sisters of Tucson. The two nonprofit organizations were selected in a community-wide vote as
beneficiaries of 911 Collision Community Foundation’s fundraising efforts.

The Mustang shell, new engine and parts
were purchased and donated by 911 Collision Centers. The paint was donated by DuPont Performance Coatings. The labor to restore and modify the
vehicle was completed on a volunteer basis by the companies’ technicians during
off-duty hours.

“Because of the donation we made
and the contribution by both our team members and DuPont, 100 percent of every dollar
raised went to the two charities,” said Quinn. “Giving back to our communities is one of the cornerstones
of our company values, and I’m very proud and appreciative of our team’s
efforts to help our community.”

In addition to the Mustang, 911 Collision
Centers, Hertz and DuPont Performance Coatings teamed up to donate second and
third place prizes for the raffle: an all-expenses paid seven-day trip to the Hilton
Grand Wailea in Maui and a VIP-NASCAR Jeff Gordon package for the Phoenix International Race in the fall.

The winning raffle tickets were
drawn at the conclusion of the Make-A-Dent golf event in which 130 golfers
participated, according to Bob Thompson, event co-chair and CFO of 911
Collision Centers.  Major sponsors
of the event included Hertz, DuPont Performance Coatings, D’Angelos Coatings, Kent
Automotive, LKQ, Insurance Auto Auctions and Enterprise Rental Co.

“We’re proud to be a
recipient of the Make-A-Dent golf event and are grateful to 911 Collision
Centers and all the other event sponsors for their generous support in these
difficult times," said Dominick San Angelo, executive
director of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. "Their
contributions provide critical funding to help us continue in our mission to
help find a cure for cystic fibrosis.”

Brothers Big Sisters of Tucson, added, “This golf tournament and dinner is one
of the premiere charity events in Tucson. Many more youths in Tucson will benefit from the mentoring programs we
provide, thanks to funds raised from this event.”
