'Tis the season for giving and our friends at Park Place Dealerships are doing just that.  This holiday season, the dealership group is awarding $100,000 to non-profits that serve the Dallas/Fort Worth area through a Season of Giving grant.   

This year,  the third year of its Season of Giving program, Park Place says it received applications from more than 400 North Texas area non-profit organizations. Of those, 18 DFW-area charities received one-time grants this year ranging from $2,500 to $10,000.  Park Place says the charities selected align with Park Place's Four Pillars of Giving: Education; Medical Research; Advocacy; or the Arts.   

“It was wonderful to learn about so many different non-profits who are doing great work across Dallas/Fort Worth,” said Tony Carimi, managing director of Park Place Dealerships. “In addition to providing end of year grants, Park Place Members will be actively engaged in volunteering with these non-profit partners throughout 2024. It’s inspiring to see the impact our Members make in the community.”
