We are thrilled to celebrate the success of Gigi's Playhouse Dream Big Motor Show, which brought together a community of car enthusiasts, individuals, and corporations who share a passion for making a positive impact.

As a company, ENALAS is dedicated to giving back to our community and supporting those around us. We were proud to donate a stunning 2009 BMW 528xi to the raffle, where each entry had a value of $100 for one or $200 for three entries. The funds raised will help Gigi's Playhouse to continue providing free education, therapeutic, and career development programs, promoting inclusion and empowerment for individuals with Down Syndrome.

Our employees share a strong commitment to our community. To support this, ENALAS established the Social Responsibility Committee (SRC), where employees nominate different organizations, and profits go to charities. This year, James Catone, our Product Developer & Project Manager, nominated Gigi's Playhouse as his chosen organization.
James shared, "The work done by Gigi's Playhouse is essential to me. I've seen the resources and tools they provide to children, maximizing their opportunities and helping them become valued members of their communities." Down Syndrome is the most extensive chromosomal disability in the United States and is the least funded.

Our CEO, Ben, understands the importance of supporting his employees. After hearing James's idea, he chose Gigi's Playhouse as our company's contribution. "I have a special needs kid, and I share James's concerns. Gigi's Playhouse has a clear vision, building residential communities to serve the IDD community, giving them a better quality of life and freedom." ENALAS contributed close to $30,000 to Gigi's Playhouse.
The success of Gigi's Playhouse Dream Big Motor Show is not just about donations. It is a testament to the power of collective efforts and unwavering community support. Together, we have made a significant difference, improving the well-being and day-to-day activities of an underserved community. We are proud to have contributed to their empowerment and will continue our commitment to fostering positive change and making an impact on our communities.
We extend our warmest congratulations to Gigi's Playhouse for organizing such a remarkable event, and we express our deepest appreciation to the passionate individuals who attended and made generous contributions. Thanks to everyone's support, Gigi's Playhouse can continue providing life-changing programs and support to individuals with Down Syndrome.
