911 Collision Centers Sponsors Vehicle Giveaway for High School Graduate

Lindsay Johnson, a 2010 graduate of Ironwood Ridge High School in Tucson, Ariz., capped off her high school career by riding off into the sunrise early Sunday morning in a bright red Hyundai freshly refurbished by 911 Collision Centers, a sponsor of Project Graduation.

Johnson was the grand prize winner in a drawing that highlighted Project Graduation, a drug/alcohol free, all-night evening of fun and safety on graduation night. The national program’s goal is aimed at keeping graduating seniors off the roads on one of the most dangerous nights of the year. 

According to Sue Conto, chair of Project Graduation, 95 percent of the senior class participated in the event this year and its success “has everything to do with the grand prize car giveaway, which would not have been possible without 911 Collision’s generous contributions.”

“It is very rewarding to again be part of this important program to keep our kids safe,” said Michael Quinn, co-founder of 911 Collision Centers, who has sponsored Project Graduation since its inception in 2004. “We want to thank all of our team members and DuPont Performance Coatings, who poured countless hours and expertise into refurbishing this vehicle. 

“Most of all, we thank the parent volunteers and the Oro Valley community for their tireless efforts and support to make Project Graduation such a big success.”
