Church Brothers Collision Repair announced that it has donated $15,000 to the Gary Dudley Memorial Scholarship Foundation – the final tally of dollars raised by the 2nd annual Church Brothers Collision Repair Car Show.
Nearly 170 vehicles representing a wide range of makes, models and years participated in the event on August 29th at the Church Brothers’ Shadeland Avenue shop on Indianapolis’ eastside. All car show proceeds were matched by Church Brothers Collision Repair to bring the total to $15,000.
The Gary Dudley Memorial Scholarship Foundation honors the late Gary Dudley, an Indiana State Police lieutenant who was killed in August 2006 while participating in a charity bicycle ride for the Indiana Chapter of Concerns of Police Survivors (COPS). The foundation, established by his widow, Carolyn, awards college scholarships to children of Indiana law enforcement officers killed in the line of duty. To date, nearly $200,000 has been awarded.
In addition to receiving this year’s contribution, the Dudley Foundation has been named the permanent beneficiary of future Church Brothers’ car shows.
