The Thompson Group at Classic Chevrolet The Official Grace Gala Sponsor

Sep 10, 2015 02:24PM ● Published by Dia

There simply isn’t enough to say about how the Thompson Group at Classic Chevrolet has made this community a better place.

GRACE is genuinely grateful to the corporate partners and local businesses that have linked arms with GRACE to accomplish the mission of providing compassionate services to those facing crisis through event sponsorship. In particular, Ken Thompson and the team at The Thompson Group at Classic Chevrolet have been steadfast, instrumental partners not only with our agency, but with city of Grapevine and Greater Northeast Tarrant County.

For eight consecutive years, The Thompson Group has been the presenting sponsor of the GRACE Gala, among other charitable events hosted by Classic Chevrolet throughout the year. The Classic Chevrolet Golf Tournament divides its proceeds between seven local charities from the Classic Employee Charity Fund, with a matching dollar for dollar gift from Classic owners Tom and Susan Durant.

Local businesses and civic groups craft a variety of homemade chili--from a southwest flair to a beer broth-- during Classic’s Annual Chili Cook Off each fall. Non-perishable food is collected at the event to stock the GRACE Food Pantry. In every season at GRACE, the Thompson Group and Classic Chevrolet have instilled an employee culture of giving, which is reflected in their generous Classic Employee Fund and charitable events.

This type of dedication speaks of a generous, resolute corporate culture that recognizes goals and develops ways to meet those goals.  “We encourage our employees to push themselves to achieve not only our company goals, but their own personal goals as well,” says Thompson, “giving back to the community has become incredibly important and fulfilling for the entire organization.”

Ken’s extraordinary advocacy for those less fortunate touches many lives, and his drive and devotion inspires others to action. GRACE is blessed to have the support of the Thompson Group at Classic Chevrolet as the 2015 GRACE Gala presenting sponsor!

As GRACE’s largest fund raising event of the year, the monies raised supports the GRACE mission to provide emergency assistance to families facing hardship in Greater Northeast Tarrant County.  Sponsorships range from $1,500 to $15,000. Individual tickets are $300, and a table of ten is $2,750. Auction item sponsorships are also available.

GRACE Grapevine is a faith-based, social service agency that provides emergency assistance to an average of 5,100 families and individuals each year. For nearly three decades, GRACE has partnered with the community provide food, clothing, shelter, education and medical care to guide families and individuals toward self-sufficiency.
