The Boys & Girls Club of Laguna Beach Recognized Tuttle-Click Automotive at National Philanthropy Day's 31st Anniversary

November 17th marked the anniversary of the 31st annual National Philanthropy Day. This day recognizes the great contribution philanthropy makes to our society and to honor individuals, businesses, and organizations that are active in the philanthropic community. This highly respected recognition day is coordinated and is supported on an international scale by the Association of Fundraising Professionals (AFP). This year, the Boys & Girls Club of Laguna Beach was thrilled to recognize Tuttle-Click Automotive for their tremendous support over the years with the Club. General Manager, Al Dimont and Marketing Manager, Shirley Dordell of Tuttle-Click were in attendance at this year's luncheon.

The Tuttle-Click Automotive Group has done an incredible amount of charitable work in the communities where it does business. Nonprofits, schools, and other charities benefit a great deal around the six Orange County-based dealerships operated by Tuttle-Click. Bob Tuttle and Jim Click, owners and George Saad, the Vice-President, have created a strong culture of volunteerism and philanthropy in the company. Tuttle-Click Automotive has been a huge help to the Boys & Girls Club of Laguna Beach, which is one of the primary recipients of the company's philanthropy. They have supported the Club for many years at the annual Art of Giving Gala, and have helped to double the funds raised each time. Around $500,000 is raised by the Gala each year. Also, Carrie Click has chaired the Gala in the past and currently serves on the Board of Directors at the Club. The Tuttle-Click Mazda dealership also sends employees out to volunteer every year for the Pancake Breakfast fundraiser at the Club's Bluebird Park branch. In 2015 the Club celebrated the enormous contributions of the Clicks by dedicating the snack bar of the new Lang Branch as the Click Café. Additionally, George Saad sits on the Advisory Board for the Boys & Girls Clubs of Capistrano Valley. The leadership at Tuttle-Click Automotive are primary drivers of the philanthropy and volunteer movement at the company, which touches many facets of the nonprofit world. With over 500 employees in Orange County, their philanthropic work is reaching many people who
need it. Due to leadership involvement in philanthropy, a culture of volunteerism, and financial support of community institutions and charities, Tuttle-Click Automotive is deserving of recognition at this year's National Philanthropy Day.

The Operator Challenge - August 2015

On August 29th, Capistrano Ford participated in a very important fundraiser to help our local Marines that are deployed in Afghanistan, in harm's way, and protecting our country. They are constantly in need of supplies, and the family's left behind need our help and support. 

"Operator Challenge"

What is the Operator Challenge?

The term "Operator" is one of the most coveted titles in the American Armed Services today, and is given only to the most experienced and battle tested of our forces, such as the Navy SEALS, Army DELTA and RANGERS and MARSOC and RECON Marines. And when you are an operator, you expect one thing - the unexpected.

An Operator needs to be able to use any tool at hand to finish his mission, and therefore trains to use multiple weapons to make sure that he can get the job done.

With this in mind, on Friday, August 28th, from 5-10PM, SCMCSG and Socks for Heroes, in partnership with Field Tech Tactical and Training in Stanton presents "The Operator Challenge."  The Operator Challenge is a 5 Person Squad Relay with each individual shooting 5 different firearms in a timed event. The combined score of the team is then totaled and used to determine which squad will move towards the finals.  The top eight squads will compete at the end of the event for the title of "Top Operator."

The Capo Ford Team named the "Capo Sharp shooters" went up against 40+ teams, including some of the best weapons specialist around, even a team of Navy Seals! The Capo Ford team consisted of Rich Rader, Collin Moore, Leonard Rios, Leonard Rios Jr and Lee Williamson. In our first round we managed to score a respectable 540, not bad for shooting five unfamiliar weapons. The second round we improved to a 577 which took us to the top of the civilian teams, doubling the score of many. By the end of the night, the Military team the "Jokers" scored an unbelievable score of 840 for the win, which included 10 dead centered bull's-eyes!

It was a great night, the event raised a lot of money, and it was an honor for Tuttle-Click to support such a great fundraiser to help our Men and Women fighting overseas
