Paradise Chevrolet Cadillac Partners With Folds of Honor To Provide Scholarships for Veteran Families
Paradise Chevrolet Cadillac has partnered with Folds of Honor, a nonprofit that helps the families of fallen and injured military veterans by providing them with scholarships for education. The campaign will be available to all employees and customers to contribute to the organization and the families it helps.
Terry Gilmore, President of Paradise Chevrolet Cadillac stated, “After attending the Bear Creek charity golf tournament in honor of Folds of Honor, I was inspired by their mission and commitment to the families of our heroes. As a veteran myself, supporting fellow veterans and the families that supported them is a privilege.”
For the remainder of the year, customers will have the ability to round-up for education when paying for parts or service. In addition, Paradise has created text and online donation platforms for those in the community that want to donate.

We stand with Paradise Chevrolet Cadillac as they move forward in their endeavors to provide even more families with life changing scholarships.” LT Colonel Dan Rooney, CEO/President of Folds of Honor.
