SEMA Cares Hosts Charity Fundraiser

By Kristopher Porter

For the first time ever, SEMA Cares held a fundraiser for the association's three partner charities at SEMA Headquarters in Diamond Bar, California. Taking place the morning of December 1, from 8:00 a.m. until 11:00 a.m., “Cars & Coffee” gathered nearly 250 unique vehicles showing off their custom metal and vintage style to hundreds of attendees and volunteers. The coffee was flowing all morning, and by the end of the event nearly $6,000 was raised to support SEMA Cares.

SEMA Cares provides a forum from which association members can act as a collective influence toward making a positive impact beyond the automotive community.

SEMA Cares helps improve the lives of many in need through the great work done by the Austin Hatcher Foundation for pediatric cancer, Childhelp's prevention and treatment of child abuse, and the Victory Junction camp for children with serious medical conditions and serious illnesses.

Established in 2007, SEMA Cares steers the same dedication and passion SEMA members have for the automotive aftermarket industry to support the care of children with illnesses and others in need.
