    Charleston Auto Auction, a member of the XLerate Group, has been named the National Auto Auction Association's 2017 Auto Auction of the Year for Excellence in Community Service.
    The Moncks Corner, S.C., business was chosen for its depth of commitment in going beyond financial support to an active role in making a local high school principal's dream of a residence for homeless students a reality.
    Presented during the association's 69th annual convention, the award includes a $20,000 check payable to a charity of the auction's choice along with a large crystal loving cup. The auction will also be featured in NAAA's On The Block magazine and the 2018 membership directory.
    Charleston Auto Auction had previously won a $5,000 check for charity as one of four regional finalists chosen earlier this year to receive the NAAA Chapter Auction of the Year Award, which recognizes outstanding public service of the Eastern, Midwest, Southern, and Western chapters.
    NAAA established the annual awards in 2016 to recognize the many charitable acts auctions already perform and to encourage even greater volunteer involvement.
