Atlanta I-CAR Committee Holds First Annual Car Show

On May 9, the Atlanta I-CAR volunteer committee held its First Annual Spring Fling Car, Truck, & Bike Show in Kennesaw, Ga. The more than $1,800 in funds raised by this event will assist the collision repair program at Maxwell High School, a career and technical school in Lawrenceville, Ga. The event proceeds will create scholarships for instructors seeking additional training, as well as for students looking to attend future technical schools.

More than 70 vehicles entered the event’s car show, with many new and classic models being represented.

The Atlanta I-CAR Volunteer Committee has representatives from 21st Century Insurance, ABRA Auto Body & Glass, Allstate Insurance, American Family Insurance, Athens Technical College, Enterprise Rent-a-Car, Esurance, Gerber Auto Body, Keystone Automotive, Liberty Mutual Insurance, LKQ Parts, MAADA, Nalley Automotive, Nationwide Insurance, Sherwin Williams, State Farm Insurance and Travelers Insurance.

Committee Chairman Peterson Santos said that this committee “will continue to look for ways to give back to the industry. Maxwell High has an excellent technical program and we are proud to help benefit their efforts.”  

“When we look for the next generation of collision technicians and employees for the industry, we are looking for young people who have a passion for working on cars and want to turn that passion into a rewarding career,” said Scott Kruger, I-CAR Education Foundation executive director. “The Atlanta I-CAR Committee’s Car, Truck and Bike Show was a fantastic event that not only helped their local school, it also celebrated ‘car culture’ and the artistry of people, young and old, working on their vehicles.”
