Pedal Cars and Sheryl Crow

Remember those adorable pedal cars that you’ve seen in Grandma’s pictures?  Or maybe you even
remember having one of your own and how grown up you felt as you pedaled your way around the yard.  Whatever the case may be, those were days, were they not?  This summer we’ve been privileged to be a part of the Brasher’s Backstage Concert event which included an auction of the most adorable pedal cars this side of the Rockies, ours being the bright orange mustang, of course!

We were one of 12 dealerships in the area that donated pedal cars for this auction. It was a sight to see.  The children of the employees at our own Brasher’s Auto Auction in Wood Village participated as the drivers of the cars wearing special vests and looking oh so sporty!  What fun they had, and the best part, they raised $13,000 which benefited Katie’s Kause for Cystic Fibrosis and the Boy Scouts of America!

We want to extend a special “Thank You” to Jerry Hinton, General Manager of Brasher’s Auto Auction.  It was his deep commitment to this community and the huge hearts of all his employees that made all this possible.  And as a result, the overwhelming generosity exhibited by the dealerships and the dealers themselves as they would donate their pedal cars back into the auction to be sold again and again was truly amazing!  What a great community we live in!!
