Community Heroes Award

MADA will recognize the generous spirit of our members by conferring the fifth annual "MADA Community Heroes Award" at the Main Event.


 To be considered, nominated dealerships must demonstrate strong contributions to the local community over the past 12 months. The Community Heroes Award will be given based on the overall community impact of the dealership’s contributions, and the involvement of its store employees. Examples of Community Heroes include time and money donations to foundations, events, festivities, school activities, fundraisers, charities, clubs and churches.
