“The Group would like to thank Federated and Pronto members, as well as over 50 vendor partners, for their generous support of our Toys for Tots golf outing,” said Mike Allen, vice president of Federated Auto Parts. “We are happy to now be partnering with Pronto in our Toys for Tots efforts and by raising a record $350,000 for Toys for Tots together, we are helping to make Christmas a little brighter for many in need.”
