Domenic Brusco of PPG Automotive Refinish, Bill Lawrence of LC Automotive Group, Tim Morgan of Spanesi Americas and Tim O’Day of Gerber Collision & Glass all have donated $1,000 personally to the organization.

I would like to thank these four industry leaders on making personal contributions at such a high level and allowing us to continue our work of supporting the industry’s future professionals. I invite and challenge other industry members to follow the lead of these members in considering a tax-deductible donation to the organization.”
"I both professionally and personally believe in the purpose, vision and especially the staff and Board of Trustees of the Foundation, and it gives me great pleasure to give back to an industry and business that PPG supports and in which I have been blessed with many great opportunities,” said Brusco, senior manager of industry relations for PPG.
Added Lawrence, owner of LC Automotive Group, “The Foundation’s effort to enhance technical education and to link qualified graduates to employment in our industry is a critical component of developing a skilled work force for today and the future. My businesses and I are committed to the Foundation’s work, and we are happy to contribute to its efforts and successes.”
