The Event

Each year the Columbus Automobile Dealers host a Charity Gala during the Columbus International Auto Show. They celebrate the show with fellow professionals in the automotive industry and raise funds to give back to local organizations in the Columbus and Central Ohio community. In 2017, the Charity Gala raised a record $165,000 for A Kid Again, Columbus Speech & Hearing Center and the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.

Join us at The Hilton Columbus Downtown to set another record and give back to children in our Columbus community in a bigger way than ever!

Columbus Speech & Hearing Center

The Columbus Speech & Hearing Center is a non-profit, United Way Agency, serving people of all ages and every income level. Our mission is to help all people improve communication and vocational independence for life. Each year, the Center serves more than 8,000 people.

A Kid Again

We exist to foster hope, happiness and healing for families raising kids with life threatening illnesses. Families thrust into the situation of having to care for a child with a life threatening illness are unprepared and usually unequipped to deal with what follows, often feeling they have lost their hold on the situation and their own lives. A Kid Again helps to restore a sense of normalcy for their child and themselves. A Kid Again strives to make life for families caring for a child with a life-threatening illness more like “life” again by helping them gain back moments of solace and a sense of control over their circumstances.
