Dealers Auto Auction Group highlights efforts to send more than $122K to charities

FRANKLIN, Tenn. - 

Dealers Auto Auction Group has a long history of giving back to the community as DAAG supports many local charities throughout the course of the year.

Collectively, the group’s recent efforts have led to more than $122,000 being awarded to a wide array of organizations.

DAA of Huntsville just celebrated its 14th anniversary sale with more than 1,000 units consigned and more than 60 percent sold, raising more than $15,000 for the Make A Wish Foundation. 

DAA of Huntsville equally has raised more than $55,000 for the local YMCA and American Cancer Society in 2018.

Giving back is something that is very important to chief executive David Andrews, who said, “We are so blessed with being able to be a part of so many amazing organizations. We really believe that supporting these local groups is the right thing to do.”

Roger Fields, general manager of DAA of Huntsville added, “It has amazed me what a group of dealers will do on a Tuesday morning at 10 am. In addition to opening their wallets with money contributions, these men and women have donated automobiles and numerous other items for our charity auctions.”

Dealers Auto Auction Group, which has seven locations in the Southeast, holds special events at each of their locations, including:

— DAA of Memphis has raised over $8,700 for organizations like the Boy Scouts of America, St Jude, American Cancer Society and a local food bank.

— DAA of Murfreesboro supports Mission Forces and has raised more than $33,000 in the past year.

— DAA of Chattanooga has raised over $10,000 for Toys for Tots, Forgotten Child and the American Red Cross.

— DAA of Mobile has raised $600 for Team Focus, a local youth organization.

“Dealers want to help support these local organizations” said Scott Keener, director of operation for DAAG.  “They really believe in giving back.”
