Auto House Holds Kurt Warner Treasure House Fundraiser
At Auto House, we’re focused on giving back to the local community and supporting great causes. On Saturday, May 21 Auto House hosted the 2nd Annual Cornhole Tournament benefiting Treasure House Phoenix at our Tempe location. Founded by Brenda and Kurt Warner, Treasure House is an active living community in Glendale, Arizona for young adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD).
Treasure House assists residents in gaining life skills, setting goals, and gaining responsibilities. Residents find jobs, volunteer, and develop and manage their own routines, schedules, and appointments. They also have unlimited opportunities to explore the community with friends they have made at Treasure House, exercise their minds and bodies, and try new activities.
The Auto House team was thrilled to be able to host the cornhole tournament in our brand new, climate-controlled 100,000 sq ft indoor showroom in Tempe to help keep everyone safe from the scorching Arizona heat. Sure, we had to move a lot of cars, but it was for an amazing cause (and everyone’s comfort).
The Burgers Amore food truck was on hand to provide hearty snacks and burgers, and local band Sky Skraper proved that the differently-abled community can rock out like nobody’s business. Giveaways, a silent auction, and prize baskets rounded out the activities, along with the chance to win a HUGE trophy presented by the man himself, Kurt Warner!
The Auto House Tempe crew and cornhole teams rose to the occasion, tossing bean bags at targets as if lives depended on it. In a way, they do—at Treasure House Phoenix, the entire differently-abled community has an equal opportunity to forge a successful path to fulfilling lives. At the end of the day, the 2nd Annual Cornhole Tournament victors may have been awarded a trophy, but in reality, we were all winners, raising a whopping $22,000 for Treasure House!
