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 2015, the Charity Gala raised a record $120,000 for Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central Ohio, St. Stephen's Community House, and Make-A-Wish Foundation.

It's time to set another record and give back to children in our Columbus community in a bigger way than ever.
