Classic Car Auction to Help House Veterans | The History
For over 40 years, Gary Shores was one of the most popular radio disc jockeys in Toledo. He not only had great talent, but he also had a great heart as anyone who knew him would attest. He freely gave his time to help support so many causes that it’s impossible to count.
One of Gary’s passions was classic cars. He was an enthusiast as was evident of the classic cars he owned at the time of his passing in October of 2022. And now, those vehicles will be one more way that Gary will help make life better for those in need.
Joe Mehling, the Executive Manager of Dave White Chevy and a close friend of Gary’s purchased 3 classic cars from Gary’s estate with the intention of auctioning them where the net profit will be donated to Veterans Matter, a national non-profit headquartered in Toledo, OH whose purpose is to help house homeless veterans. Veterans Matter works with the Veterans Administration to identify homeless veterans and place them in permanent housing so they may start receiving the benefits and medical attention to which they are entitled and deserve.
