‘Andre Reyna Make a Difference’ Car Wash to Benefit Food Bank Announced
The 3rd annual ‘Andre Reyna Make a Difference’ Car Wash will be held on Saturday, October 20, 2012 from 9:00 AM – 3:00 PM, at T.G.I. Friday’s located at 13400 S. Orange Blossom Trail Orlando, FL, and will benefit the Second Harvest Food Bank of Central Florida. The community event is in remembrance of Andre Reyna, who was tragically killed in a car accident on October 22, 2009 at the age of 21.
“Andre’s greatest passion in life was helping others, particularly those who were less fortunate. The annual car wash was started not only as a way to remember Andre on the one year anniversary of his passing, but to carry out his legacy by raising money for one his favorite charities, Second Harvest Food Bank of Central Florida,” Andre’s mother, Odalys Reyna said.
All of the proceeds raised from the donation-only car wash will go directly to the Second Harvest Food Bank of Central Florida. Second Harvest Food Bank of Central Florida is a private, nonprofit organization that collects and distributes donated food to more than 500 nonprofit partner agencies in six Central Florida counties: Brevard, Lake, Orange, Osceola, Seminole and Volusia. Andre was an active volunteer at Second Harvest Food Bank for five years, participating in special events, volunteering in the office and as a food sorter at local food bank drives.
The Orlando-based auto justice and personal injury law firm of Michael T. Gibson, P.A., along with several other local businesses have made donations to sponsor this event. T.G.I. Friday’s will supply the location for the car wash and also donate free appetizer coupons to every attendee who receives a car wash.
