Grapevine, Texas—(December 21, 2020) -- Avondale Group, North Texas’ leading retailer of luxury performance automobiles are granting wishes across the metroplex this holiday season. They are teaming with their Avondale Partners to present ‘7 Days of Giving’ to commemorate their inaugural holiday season of the newly branded automotive company and share The Avondale Spirit. Each of these partners have selected a charity and Avondale is supporting them in carrying out and matching their contributions. Each day of giving will lead up to a first look of Avondale’s major volunteer efforts by its own team members for a Wish recipient from Make-A-Wish.

Avondale Group President Hesham Elgaghil said, “The Avondale Way is to strive to bring a human touch to our clients’ overall experiences.  One of the ways we have done this over the past 30 years is to work passionately to elevate the communities around us. We look forward to anticipating the need before it arises with our clients and championing the causes that mean so much to them.  From all of us, we say thank you and wish everyone in North Texas a safe, healthy and peaceful holiday season.”
