NABC to Celebrate 20th Anniversary with Founders’ Awards, Recycled Ride

Gala reception on Jan. 13 will recognize contributors to NABC, and a Recycled Ride will be handed out on Jan. 14 to a needy Palm Springs, Calif., family.

The National Auto Body Council (NABC) announced it will be celebrating its 20th anniversary with the handing out of Founders’ Awards and a Recycled Ride in Palm Springs, Calif.

Individuals and businesses who have contributed to the NABC over the past 20 years will be recognized at a gala reception on Tuesday, Jan. 13 at 6 p.m. at Spencer’s Restaurant

On Wednesday, Jan. 14 at 9:30 a.m., a local Palm Springs-area single mother of two who works two jobs to support her family will receive keys to a completely refurbished 2013 Chevrolet Cruze at Tahquitz Creek Golf Resort as part of the NABC’s Recycled Rides program. The vehicle was donated by Hertz and refurbished by Pacific Elite Collision, a local auto body repair facility. The recipient, Olimpia Ruiz, was selected by Variety – The Children’s Charity of the Desert.

This is the fourth year in a row that all three organizations have teamed up locally to donate a vehicle to a Palm Springs resident during the NABC’s annual golf fundraiser.
