Grapevine, Texas and Staunton, Virginia, May 29, 2019 - The Automotive Parts Services Group (The Group) charity golf outing, held recently at the Disney Palm Golf Course in Orlando, Florida, raised over $300,000 for the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots campaign.

“We are extremely pleased to report that ‘The Group’ golf outing was a spectacular success,” said Mike Allen, vice president for Federated Auto Parts. “We had participation from 47 valued vendor partners, along with continued support from the Federated and Pronto membership. Special thanks to the presenting sponsor Brake Parts Inc and all who generously donated to make this such an amazing charitable event.”

The Group Toys for Tots charity golf outing was held in conjunction with the combined Pronto/Federated spring member meeting held at the Disney Coronado Springs Resort in Lake Buena Vista, Florida. The golf outing featured a four-man scramble with a shotgun start. A reception was held following the tournament where awards were presented and special recognition was given to those who supported the tournament.

Since initiating its Toys for Tots campaign in 2012, The Group has raised over $2.5 million for this worthy cause, and Federated and Pronto have each been named a “Three-Star Partner” by the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Program.
