Autobahn Motorcar Group Raises Big Money for Big Brothers Big Sisters
14th Annual Raffle raises nearly $500,000; has raised more than $4 million for local mentoring initiatives.
“There are no words to adequately convey how grateful we are to Autobahn for its generosity,”
Since 1999, Autobahn Motorcar Group, located in Fort Worth, has donated free-of-charge a new model vehicle from one of its luxury lines (BMW, Porsche, Range Rover, Jaguar, Volkswagen, Volvo) to be raffled off on behalf of Big Brothers Big Sisters.
