Thank You! The 2018 New Car Dealers Foundation / Special Olympics BC Auction Update

June 21, 2018

A sincere thank you all of the New Car Dealers and supporters who contributed to the success of the 2018 New Car Dealers Foundation / Special Olympics BC Auction! This year’s event raised more than $182,000, raising the three-decade total to more than $4.9 million in support of Special Olympics BC and the work of the New Car Dealers Foundation.

The 2018 auction included 248 popular prizes in the following categories: Automotive and Business, Food and Wine, Lifestyle, Media, and Sport and Travel.

A heartfelt thank you to the many dealers who generously supported this year’s auction by making a cash pledge, donating auction items, soliciting donations, and/or bidding on items– please see a listing of supporters at the bottom of this article. Our deepest thanks also go to the dedicated auction committee, who so generously give countless hours to make this event a success for the charities:

  • Manse Binkley, Harmony Honda and Harmony Acura
  • Doug Bower, Vancouver Sun and The Province
  • Marnie Carter, Carter Auto Family
  • John Chesman
  • Pamela Keith, Dueck Auto Group
  • Joe Mitchell, Carter Auto Family
  • Blair Qualey, New Car Dealers Association
  • John Wynia, Harbourview Volkswagen

This year’s fundraising total will help SOBC support both its 18 summer and winter sports programs for people with intellectual disabilities. The funds are also vital to helping SOBC’s year-round fitness program, and it’s Healthy Athletes’ initiatives.

Through Healthy Athletes, health care professionals receive training about the specific health care concerns of people with intellectual disabilities and how to ask the right questions, helping them draw out issues. Their interactions with Special Olympics athletes lead to referrals back into the health care system that ensures the individuals will get the treatment they need.

Sarah Russell, Health and Engagement Coordinator for SOBC, recently made the trip to Prince Rupert for a Healthy Athletes screening.

“There’s a real appetite for these events in the communities,” said Russell. “The coaches and athletes that came through were really engaged in the program.”

Russell said the athletes were particularly interested in better food nutrition information.

“It’s important to be able to get information like nutrition and healthy food choices into the athlete’s hands. Sometimes they are surprised to find out what’s wrong with some of their favourite foods.”

People with intellectual disabilities experience more difficulty accessing services than others in their communities. Globally, millions of people with intellectual disabilities lack access to quality healthcare and experience dramatically higher rates of preventable disease, chronic pain and suffering, and premature death in every country around the world.

Fundraising from the New Car Dealers Foundation auction goes a long way to improving the lives of people with intellectual disabilities in B.C.

B.C.’s New Car Dealers have been helping Special Olympics BC change lives through the power of sport since 1984. The annual auction began in 1987 as the popular Casino Auction in support of SOBC, chaired by Sherrold Haddad. Over the last three decades, the auction has continually grown and changed, adopting new technology and tools to strengthen the event to provide significant funding to the New Car Dealers Foundation and Special Olympics BC.

The funds raised by the auction also supports the work of the New Car Dealers Foundation. The Foundation awards CarCareerBC education grants to eligible students in B.C. who wish to pursue post-secondary education or training leading to a career in the automotive industry. CarCareerBC grants provide financial support towards the cost of tuition and books for recipients enrolled in applicable apprenticeship, training or education with institutions including Vancouver Island University, BCIT, Georgian College and Okanagan College.

Special Olympics BC and the New Car Dealers Foundation extend sincere thanks to everyone who supported the 2018 auction and looks forward to further growth in 2019. To get involved, please contact Christina Hadley, SOBC Vice President, Fund Development & Communications, at 604-737-3073 / 1-888-854-2276 toll-free / chadley@specialolympics.bc.ca.

The New Car Dealers Foundation of British Columbia is helping power success with $10,000 annually in new awards for Trades and Business students at Okanagan College.

The annual awards ranging from $1,000 to $2,000 each will support students in the Automotive Service Technician apprenticeship and foundation programs, plus the Business Administration program.

“The demand for skilled automotive service technicians and business professionals is increasing throughout the automotive sector,” said Blair Qualey, president and CEO of the New Car Dealers Association of B.C.

“We see partnerships with training institutions like Okanagan College as integral to service delivery and the prosperity of our member dealerships.”

There are 29 new car dealer members in the Okanagan including six dealerships operated by Sentes Automotive.

Adam Rich, Sentes Automotive Group General Manager, says he hopes the awards will encourage more young people to enter the automotive industry and stay local after graduation.

“We’re always looking for more technicians. We know the value of the Okanagan College program, we’ve hired grads in the past, and we’re thrilled to support it,” said Rich.

“We are very grateful to the New Car Dealers Foundation for this investment in our students’ futures,” said Kathy Butler, executive director of the Okanagan College Foundation.

“The creation of these new awards will both help attract and retain students, ultimately connecting them to a vibrant and expanding industry, especially in the Okanagan.”

“These awards are unique in that they will open doors for trades students while also supporting the next generation of business professionals pursuing careers in the automotive sector.”

The New Car Dealers Foundation presented its first set of awards in Kelowna in April.

Among the recipients was Paul Whitlock, a student in the Automotive Service Technician program. Whitlock plans to complete his Red Seal Endorsement and then go on to business school.

“This award will make it easier for me to progress through my apprenticeship with less stress about being able to afford it all,” said Whitlock. “I can’t thank the donors enough for this very generous gift. It will help me achieve my dream.”

New Car Dealers Foundation / Special Olympics BC – 2017 Auction Review

May 6, 2017

SOBC_NCDAuction2017_TYHeartfelt thanks to all of the New Car Dealers and supporters who contributed to the success of the 2017 New Car Dealers Foundation / Special Olympics BC Auction! This year’s event raised more than $178,000, raising the three-decade total to more than $4.7 million in support of Special Olympics BC and the work of the New Car Dealers Foundation.

This year’s auction included a much-appreciated milestone: Dealers donated the most cash pledges to date, helping ensure vital support for the charities. The 2017 auction included 282 popular prizes in the following categories: Automotive and Business, Food and Wine, Lifestyle, Media, and Sport and Travel.

Sincere thanks to the many Dealers who generously supported this year’s auction by making a cash pledge, donating auction items, soliciting donations, and/or bidding on items – please see the sidebar. Our deepest thanks also go to the dedicated auction committee, who so generously give countless hours to make this event a success for the charities: Manse Binkley of Harmony Honda and Harmony Acura, Doug Bower of the Vancouver Sun and The Province, Marnie Carter of the Carter Auto Family, John Chesman, Pamela Keith of the Dueck Auto Group, and Joe Mitchell of the Carter Auto Family.

At the 2017 Vancouver International Auto Show Gala, Special Olympics BC – Coquitlam athlete Adam Advocaat shared his experience of empowerment through Special Olympics and his gratitude for the support of the New Car Dealers. You help create critical change with Special Olympics BC’s year-round programs and opportunities for Advocaat and more than 4,600 athletes with intellectual disabilities throughout the province.

“For me, Special Olympics hasn’t always been just about the achievements on the field,” Advocaat said. “While the world looks at me and sees a bunch of ‘No, he can’t’s, my aims in life can be summed up with a simple, three world motto: ‘Yes, I can.’ I can say this because of the experiences that I’ve had through Special Olympics, both as an athlete, and as a leader. When I first started, I was a scared, shy and emotional child. In [my 20 years as a Special Olympics athlete] I’ve become a passionate, outgoing, and still emotional adult. I have a decent job that I’m told I am good at, I live an almost-independent life, and I’m surrounded by loving people with interests similar to mine, both within and outside of my Special Olympics life.

“Special Olympics relies on its sponsors like the New Car Dealers Association, and fundraising events such as the Auction, in order to give athletes experiences like the ones I have had. Without this support, the world for people like me would be very different in ways that I don’t even want to imagine.”

B.C.’s New Car Dealers have been helping Special Olympics BC change lives through the power of sport since 1984. The annual auction began in 1987 as the popular Casino Auction in support of SOBC, chaired by Sherrold Haddad. Over the last three decades, the auction has continually grown and changed, adopting new technology and tools to strengthen the event to provide significant funding to the New Car Dealers Foundation and Special Olympics BC.

New Car Dealers Foundation / Special Olympics BC – 2015 Auction Review

May 10, 2015

The 2015 New Car Dealers Foundation of BC / Special Olympics Auction raised nearly $187,000, bringing the three-decade total to almost $4.4 million in support of Special Olympics BC and the work of the New Car Dealers Foundation. B.C.’s New Car Dealers have been making a difference with Special Olympics BC for 30 years, and this year’s auction showed the relationship is going strong, as Dealers and supporters donated the greatest number of items yet.

This highly successful event started life in 1987 as the popular Casino Auction in support of SOBC, chaired by Sherrold Haddad. The first event raised $50,000 and soared in its second year, raising $120,000. As times changed, the auction grew and changed too. In the late 1990s, seeking to expand the auction so that dealers outside the Lower Mainland could participate, the dinner/auction began the transition from an event to what is now an online auction. Under the committee chaired by Tom Harris, this transition started in 1998 with dealers bidding by phone, email, or fax the first year.

Over the next couple of years, bidding by fax and email were replaced with bidding online through a dedicated auction website. Throughout the technological changes, the New Car Dealers Foundation of BC / Special Olympics Auction has remained a very successful initiative that provides significant funding to SOBC and the New Car Dealers Foundation.

The funds raised help SOBC transform lives through the power of sport every day. In B.C., there are more than 4,300 Special Olympics athletes with intellectual disabilities in 57 communities empowering themselves through year-round sport and youth programs, supported by more than 3,300 dedicated volunteers and generous sponsors like B.C.’s New Car Dealers.

The New Car Dealers Foundation awards CarCareerBC education grants to eligible students in B.C. who wish to pursue post-secondary education or training leading to a career in the automotive industry. CarCareerBC grants provide financial support towards the cost of tuition and books for recipients enrolled in applicable apprenticeship, training or education. In addition to supporting SOBC, the Foundation has also contributed funding to Georgian College, the University of Victoria, SOS Children’s Village BC, Thompson River, Okanagan College, Canuck Place Children’s Hospice, and BCIT.

SOBC and the New Car Dealers Foundation extend sincere thanks to everyone who supported the 2015 auction, and look forward to continued success in 2016. To get involved, please contact Christina Hadley, SOBC Vice President, Fund Development & Communications, at 604-737-3073 / 1-888-854-2276 toll-free / chadley@specialolympics.bc.ca.
