Car Dealer Marks its Millionth Deal
To mark the sale of 1 million vehicles, Wilson Automotive, based in Orange, donated a new Toyota Tundra to the Orangewood Children’s Foundation, which sold the car for $55,000 at a fundraising event.
Laguna Beach residents David and Holly Wilson received a Golden Heart Award at the benefit on March 11. Wilson was the first car dealer in history to sell 500,000 Toyota/Lexus vehicles. When he hit that milestone in 2014, he also donated a car to charity, says a company statement.
