MANCHESTER, NH – On Saturday, March 1, Andy Crews, president and CEO of AutoFair Companies joined New Hampshire firefighters, police officers, CHaD patients and a record breaking crowd of nearly 6,900 Badges fans at the 7th Annual CHaD Battle of the Badges Hockey Championship. As presenting sponsor of the battle of good vs. good, AutoFair committed $20,000 in support of the Children’s Hospital at Dartmouth-Hitchcock (CHaD). This is the fourth consecutive year the dealership company has served as the presenting sponsor for the charity hockey game that is held annually at the Verizon Wireless Arena in Manchester, NH. Since 2011, AutoFair’s support of CHaD has totaled $70,000.

The AutoFair leadership team, including Mr. Crews, recently visited CHaD, where they toured the facility and spent time visiting with several CHaD patients. "The collective work our entire AutoFair team has had the honor of doing over the past four years with the programs CHaD supports, has been some of the most gratifying community work our team has done in New Hampshire," said Crews. "Recently our general managers and I had the opportunity to visit CHaD and see firsthand the incredible work being done for children and their families. Being able to raise $70,000 for that effort and all CHaD does is both humbling and indeed an honor."

AutoFair, owner of Honda, Ford, Hyundai, Nissan and Volkswagen dealerships in New Hampshire and Massachusetts, showcased their latest models at the CHaD Battle of the Badges Hockey Championship, including an on-ice vehicle presentation. AutoFair is a loyal partner with the Children’s Hospital at Dartmouth-Hitchcock, sponsoring multiple events in addition to the CHaD Battle of the Badges, including; the CHaD NH East-West High School All Star Football Game, the CHaD All-Star Golf Tournament and the Champion’s Breakfast at New Hampshire Motor Speedway.
