This years Pipeline To A Cure event will honor LAcarGUY’s Mike Sullivan for his charity involvement with Cystic Fibrosis.  Once again, LAcarGUY will be donating a 2010 Toyota Prius which will be auctioned off to help raise money for the charity (last year’s Prius auction generated over $40,000!)

The evening will bring together the surf world to support the direct positive effect surfing has on those afflicted with Cystic Fibrosis.  The event will feature a special headline performance from Shiny Toy Guns, along with former American Idol contestant Kai Kalama.  Chris Cote, Editor-in-Chief of TransWorldSURF, will emcee the evening which includes a live auction with radio personality Shawn Parr.

Watch this video of Pipeline To A Cure’s role model and hero, Emily Haager, to understand both the exciting role surfing has played in helping those afflicted with CF and the importance of continuing to raise money to help end this disease.

Mike Sullivan to be honored by Richstone Family Center

May 27, 2009 lacarguy Charity, mike sullivan 0 Comments

Affair-cover The Richstone Family Center, a foundation dedicated to improving the lives of under-priviledged children and their families, is honoring Mike Sullivan at their annual "An Affair of the Heart" fundraiser.

Mike is being honored for his contributions to the charity and the community.  The event takes place on Saturday, June 6 at 6:30 pm at Loyola Marymount University. We invite you to join us for a night of great food, wine and music.    Click here for more info on the event and/or to buy tickets.

The Richstone Family Center was incorporated in 1974 in Hawthorne. In 1977 Richstone served thirty-five families in one program on one site. In 2004, Richstone served over 4,500 children and their families in 13 different programs based at five sites.

The half acre site at 13620 Cordary was purchased in 1979 and the adjacent acre in 1989. The Richstone Jim Murray Children’s Center was built on the new property in 1993-1994. At the same time Richstone staff was expanding programs into the Lennox community with the support of the Lennox School District.

With programs flourishing in Lennox, Richstone was able to focus on other community needs. In the last decade of the 20th century programs were started at other school districts, in Harbor City, in the beach sites, and culminating with the founding of the ‘Insuring Our Future’ for young women emancipated from the foster care system.

Richstone now offers services for children from birth to adulthood and for parents in their teens to grandparents in their sixties.

Pacific Audi Receives Audi's "Best of the Best" Magna Award

Pacific Audi is extremely proud of acheiving Audi's Magna Award for the countries best Audi dealers. We pride ourselves on customer service and this award is very important to us.  The details are below.

– The program honors the best of the best among all distinguished U.S. Audi dealers

– To earn the award, dealers must meet customer service and business objectives

– Magna Society fits alongside Audi dealer plans to spend $1 billion on franchises

HERNDON, Va., April 27 /PRNewswire/ — Providing superlative customer service while achieving strong overall business performance was no simple feat as economic headwinds worsened toward the end of last year. Yet 35 Audi dealers nationwide excelled on both scores, earning Magna Society awards for 2008.

Audi established the Magna Society to recognize U.S. dealerships that stand out as the best of the best. To qualify, dealerships can't just meet or exceed sales targets. They must also demonstrate they are maintaining a solid financial foundation, merit high customer satisfaction scores and show their facilities and staffs represent the progressive Audi culture.

"This is far more than a sales contest," said Reinhard Fischer, Director, Network Management, Audi of America. "It is a broad-based measurement of dealers leading the way in firmly establishing that the Audi experience is a superior experience for American luxury car buyers."

The annual Magna Society awards thus mesh with long-range plans established by Audi and its franchise partners to make Audi facilities more exclusive. Between 2003 and 2011, Audi dealers have made plans to spend $1 billion on facilities – a level of investment that has changed little amid the current economic downturn. Since 2002, the number of exclusive Audi dealerships has increased a remarkable 70% to 126 out of 270 overall in the U.S.

"Commitment like this from dealers shows the excitement generated by the Audi brand and the collection of exceptional motor cars Audi has been introducing in recent years," said Johan de Nysschen, President, Audi of America. "It is the basis for a very bright future for Audi, its dealer partners and, most of all, customers."
