CINCINNATI, OH--(Marketwired - Apr 5, 2013) - At the Kings Ford Dealership in Cincinnati, OH, it isn't all about just selling new and used cars in Cincinnati. It's about community and helping others. Back in 2009, Bob Creed Jr., Director of Innovations & Technology at Kings Ford, took a simple idea and ran with it by turning it into an opportunity to make the wishes of children with life-threatening illnesses come true. With the aid of the Make-A-Wish Foundation, Bob and the rest of the team at Kings Ford were able to do just that. After brainstorming with family, friends, clients and coworkers, Bob landed upon the idea of gathering together everyone he knew personally and in his customer database that played golf to coordinate a sponsored event to benefit these kids and their families to make their wishes come true by putting together a charity event golf tournament. The outing has grown substantially year after year with a lot more individual donations and golfers, thanks to the help of volunteers and the support of Fairfield Green Golf Course, and to date they have raised over $43,000 and will be sponsoring two children in 2013.
"Back in 2009, we were able to raise enough money to sponsor a great little girl and her family to go to Disney World. She had been treated for bone cancer and is now, I'm happy to say, in remission. The family was gracious enough to come to the golf course after dinner to meet the people who had made her wish come true. It was a moment that no one will soon forget. All the families we have sponsored have been gracious enough to return each year to help support the new families we sponsor, and we are grateful for their attendance. With the help of my daughter Karen, we have designed our own website for all those who participated in the fundraiser to enjoy and to track the progress of the children we've sponsored," said Bob Creed Jr.
