The online collector car classified website has named Shriners Hospitals for Children its official health charity and has pledged to donate a portion in proceeds by the end of 2020.
ClassicCars.com announced today it will donate a portion of its Marketplace proceeds to Shriners Hospitals for Children. The partnership will continue throughout 2020 on the ClassicCars.com Marketplace, where a portion of listing fees will be donated to Shriners Hospitals.
As part of the partnership, ClassicCars.com will join Shriners Hospitals at a number of events through 2020, including the recent Shriners Hospitals for Children Open, where it was named a corporate sponsor. The PGA TOUR has been hosting the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open since 1983, and the tournament continues to draw many of the world’s top golfers to compete for points in the FedEx Cup. ClassicCars.com will also join Shriners Hospitals at the upcoming East-West Shrine Bowl on January 18, 2020 in St. Petersburg, Florida.
“We are very proud to be working with such an amazing organization,” said Roger Falcione, president and CEO of ClassicCars.com. “Our goal is for our contributions to help offer a better quality of life for patients and their families across the country. Events like the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open are a great way we can team up and further the cause.”
One of the driving factors behind the partnership is the impact the charity had on ClassicCars.com’s Editorial Director, Larry Edsall, who was a patient at Shriners Hospitals for Children — Chicago throughout his childhood. As a result, the website company has committed to donating a portion of the listing fee for each vehicle advertised to the Shriners health care system.
“I have been a part of the Shriners family for as long as I can remember,” said Edsall. “It is an honor to be able to bring my passion for helping these children and my passion for cars and writing together. I know this will be a fruitful and mutually beneficial partnership.”
