ALLENTOWN, Pa. -

The group that puts on the area's largest car show is offering non-profits a chance to earn money for their organizations.

For the first time in its 16-year history, the Greater Lehigh Valley Auto Dealers Association (GLVADA) is offering Lehigh Valley nonprofit organizations an opportunity to raise funds by selling tickets for its annual Greater Lehigh Valley Auto Show.

Participating nonprofit organizations will have an opportunity to sell $10 tickets to the Auto Show for Thursday, March 21 and Friday, March 22. For each $10 ticket the nonprofit sells, it will receive $5 back from GLVADA.

“The secret to our fundraising success has been the annual Auto Show,” said Tom Kwiatek, executive director, GLVADA. “Over the last four years, GLVADA has donated more than $500,000 to support local charities, the primary source of which has been revenues from the auto show. The more successful the show, the more funding we have to support our philanthropic efforts.”

For more information about registering as a participating nonprofit, visit www.glvautoshow.org/community.

Registration must be completed by Friday, Feb. 8.

This year's show will be March 21-24 at Stabler Arena in Bethlehem.
