On Saturday, July 23, we announced the winners of our 2016 Wheels to Prosper Car Giveaway! This year, two vehicles were donated from the Amarillo community, and Channel 10 News was on hand to document the event. Thank you to everyone who participated and attended. We couldn’t do it without you!!!
Keshana Darling is the winner of the 1998 Mercury Sable! She is a sophomore in college, and she plans to pursue a career in engineering once she graduates. Last year, she was unable to join her family for the holidays because she didn’t have a car to drive home. This year, she’ll have her own wheels, and be able to get where she needs to go, whether for school, work, or family. Thank you Keshana for helping others, and being a valuable member of our community! We know you’ll do great things with your car and with your life.
Larissa is a single mom with two boys, an 8-year-old and a 4-year-old. Needless to say she has her hands full, and she’s is an EMT, who must always be ready to respond to those in need. Her goal is to advance in her career and become a paramedic, but doing all she needs and wants without a car was nearly impossible. Now she’ll be able to get herself and her boys where they need to go, and pursue her dreams for the future. Thank you Larissa for making a career out of helping others. You deserve a hand up!
Congrats to two very hardworking and deserving people!
More on Wheels to Prosper
For us at Aardvark Automotive, one of the highlights of every year is our Wheels to Prosper Car Giveaway in July. The program was started by a group of auto shop owners actively engaged in improving the reputation and quality of service in the auto repair industry. The concept is to use our skills (repairing and maintaining cars) to improve a deserving individual’s life. Our winners are nominated by their family members, friends, and peers because they selflessly help others even when they are in need themselves.
From selecting the right vehicle (or vehicles) for the giveaway to fine-tuning the condition to getting to know our nominees, Wheels to Prosper is always a humbling and extremely rewarding experience. If you’re interested in being involved in our next Wheels to Prosper giveaway, please give us a call or contact us online. We welcome any inquiries and contributions.
