The March 2 – 4 World of Wheels event at the Donald E. Stephens Convention center in Rosemont, Ill., was the happening place to be for auto enthusiasts to bid on one-of-a-kind car-themed artworks which helped support the Chicago- land and North Indiana Ronald McDonald Houses (RMHC-CNI.) The GSF Foundation proudly sponsored the Kustom Kulture Charity Automotive Art Auction, which raised a record $63,000 in three days. This entire sum will be donated to help build the new 14-story world’s largest Ronald McDonald House being built in Chicago’s North Loop area.

“We started five years ago with a hope and a dream and this amazing group of custom car culture artists has raised nearly $300,000 in five years from these events,” says Foundation Board Member, Paul Sestak, who also serves as Group Vice President, Compliance and Program Development –

Distribution in Oak Brook. “This could not have been possible without the generous support of Mark Wetterau [GSF Foundation Chairman] and Chuck Browne [GSF Foundation Executive Director] who are both car guys! Charlie Stone [GSF-Lemont Foundation volunteer], and other dedicated GSF associates volunteered their time at the auction. And, as always, the artists and RMHC- CNI were very grateful for the support of the Foundation and the volunteers’ contribution of time and talent! This event exemplifies the power of our Creed and Values that help make GSF such a special place to work.”

Hats off to everyone involved in the Kustom Kulture Charity Auction for making a difference in the lives of children and their families in need.
