NASCAR’S Hendrick Donates Ten Cars To Good News Garage (excerpt)
As Hal Colston chatted with Oprah Winfrey about his brainchild program, Good News Garage, he got a big surprise: Rick Hendrick stood up in the audience and came on stage to donate ten 2008 pre-owned Chevy Impalas and a $10,000 cash donation.
Colston was being honored on “The Oprah Winfrey Show/People Magazine Exclusive: Heroes in Hard Times” for his groundbreaking program Good News Garage that provides reliable cars to low income families to help them move from welfare to work. Good News Garage is a program of Lutheran Social Services.
“Rick Hendrick astounded me,” declares Colston. “What a spectacular gift for deserving families in New England!”
