PALM SPRINGS, CA (January 18, 2017)Golfers at the National Auto Body Council’s Golf Fundraiser in Palm Springs last week witnessed first-hand the impact of their support when a beaming young mother and her three-year-old daughter were presented with a Recycled Rides™ car fully loaded with toys and gifts.

The life-changing vehicle donation was provided by the Hertz Corporation and refurbished by Fix Auto Cathedral City at the conclusion of the annual NABC Golf Fundraiser.

Jordan Holt was just 17 when she was pregnant with twins and tragically lost one of her daughters. Her surviving daughter as well as Jordan herself faced numerous hospitalizations and medical challenges from a difficult childbirth. Without reliable transportation, Jordan had been struggling to juggle medical appointments, childcare and college classes.

“We thank Hertz, our Golf Fundraiser Presenting Sponsor, and the many other businesses and individuals who contributed to the success of this year’s event,” said Domenic Brusco, NABC Chairman.  “Funds raised from this event will help NABC and its members change and save lives for many more hard-working and deserving individuals like Jordan Holt.”

Proceeds from the Palm Springs Golf Fundraiser will support other NABC program initiatives including First Responder Emergency Extrication (FREE™) and the Distracted Driving Initiative.
