The Toledo Auto Dealers Association saw an opportunity in their community to give back and help local children in need. They joined together to create the Auto Dealers United for Kids, a 501c organization and an annual charity event, "The Cars are the Stars Charity Preview Gala". Over the years, The Cars are the Stars Preview Gala has grown to become one of the largest benefits in the Greater Toledo area and has surpassed $2.2 million dollars in donations to local children's charities.
