Heiner’s Insurance Car Show In Ogden Cruises For A Cause
OGDEN, Utah, Aug. 6, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Heiner’s Insurance Center is proud to stand up for the Ogden community by hosting Cruisin’ for a Cause, the sixth annual Heiner’s Car Show. Ogden joins many communities across the country as it rebuilds after the effects of Covid hit its residents and economy hard. Heiner’s Car Show was one of the country’s only car shows last year during the Covid crisis. This decision did not come easy and is a testament of their passion to support mental health, the purpose of the car show. Last year, Heiner’s raised enough to pay for over 280 counseling sessions for in-need Utahns. “We just couldn’t stand by while so many were in need last year and continue to have a need for mental health support,” said Chris Heiner, Vice President of Heiner’s. With the highest level of safety precautions, they pulled it off in the middle of the pandemic.
This year, Heiner’s wants to be there to support the increasing need for mental health services and the revitalization of the Ogden community. But you won’t hear the humble Heiner’s Family boast of their generosity. They are giving every penny collected to the Family Counseling Service without taking a cut of any kind. Heiner’s is personally burdening all expenses and donating hundreds of hours to coordinate all the shows particulars. This greatly impressed Glenn Lanham, the Executive Director of the Family Counseling Service of Northern Utah. “We couldn’t be more appreciative and I’m very honored to be a part of it. It’s inspiring in today’s day and age to see a company like Heiner’s step up so selflessly.”
Glenn reports that suicide, depression, domestic violence, abuse and addiction have all increased as a result of the pandemic. This means that the Family Counseling Service is in more need than ever right now. With many Utahns tight on finances, there are few places for them to receive their much-needed mental health support.
“We want to do our part and hope everyone does theirs. So, let’s get back out and have a good time while we all support a great service,” concluded Chris Heiner. This year, other selfless businesses have already joined the Cruisin’ for a Cause effort such as Mutual of Enumclaw, Young Automotive Group, Young Ford of Ogden and WCF Insurance. At least 15 other Ogden businesses have generously donated as well.
Cruisin’ for a Cause, the 6th Annual Heiner’s Insurance Car Show, is free for spectators and donations are welcome! Also, guests can enter for a chance to win prizes, with all proceeds benefiting the Family Counseling Service. The family-friendly event is the perfect way to spend a warm, summer evening with family and friends while supporting the local community.
