Automotive Supply Associates Raises Money for University of Aftermarket
Oct. 22, 2014—The proceeds from the annual Automotive Supply Associates (ASA)/Sanel Auto Parts golf outing were donated to the University of the Aftermarket Foundation.
The donation was made in memory of George Segal, chairman of ASA/Sanel, who passed away in August at the age of 87.
“Our dad spent his career in the automotive aftermarket; he grew up in the business. He really enjoyed being with customers, suppliers and team members, and he loved golf and the camaraderie of our annual tournament. My brothers, Bobby and Alan, and I are grateful for the generosity of all the participants. It is a fitting tribute to be able to donate the proceeds from this year’s event in our father’s memory,” David Segal, president of ASA/Sanel Auto Parts, said in a release.
The outing, held Sept. 12 at the Pembroke Pines Country Club in Pembroke, N.H., brought together customers, suppliers and company personnel, who played to raise funds for scholarships for Maine, New Hampshire and Vermont students pursuing careers in the auto care industry.
Thirty-six foursomes raised $10,000 for the University of the Aftermarket Foundation in honor of Segal, a widely recognized industry leader who served on numerous advisory boards during his 50-year career.
