United Way of Broward County announced today the recipient of its annual car giveaway is AutoNation’s Ron Frey. For nearly 15 years, United Way has given a new car to one lucky donor thanks to the generosity of the Holman Automotive Group.
Frey, a loyal supporter of United Way of Broward County, became eligible for the giveaway through his donation to the organization. Throughout the year, Broward County residents who donated a minimum of $260 (only $5 per week) to United Way were entered into a drawing to win a 2013 Infiniti G37. Ron Frey’s name was randomly drawn from a pool of more than 10,000 entries.
"It’s a pleasure to present a new Infiniti to Ron Frey as a way of thanking him for his unwavering support of United Way,” said Kathleen Cannon, President and CEO of United Way of Broward County. “Ron represents the remarkable compassion of our local residents who continue to improve the lives of so many in Broward County.”
As the CSO, Ron is responsible for setting vision and strategy for AutoNation as a company. He has several projects that he is responsible for many of which revolve around the Store of the Future and Digital Store Fronts. Ron has been with AutoNation since 2007. Ron Frey said, "The United Way is such a vital part of our community and makes an important impact. I am going to challenge my fellow associates at AutoNation to get more involved with United Way. I would also like to thank the folks at Holman Automotive on being a great partner with the United Way, as we all work towards making our community a better place to live.”
