City Honors Auction for Community Involvement Featured

Manheim Seattle won the City of Kent's “Best of Kent” award for the fifth consecutive year, qualifying the auto auction for the Kent Business Hall of Fame.

The award is presented to local businesses that continue to display innovative growth, a sharp focus on community relations and customer feedback acknowledging that they are conducting business with a world-class company. _The auction is particularly recognized for its community involvement, which include support of the following organizations:

• Auburn Youth Resources. This organization provides shelter for thousands of homeless and abandoned children in South King and North Pierce County. They also provide other valuable services to children in the area, including school backpacks and supplies, as well as substance abuse prevention, outpatient chemical abuse treatment and counseling. In 2015, Manheim Seattle donated over $15,000 from a silent charity auction in conjunction with area auto dealers and franchises to help support Auburn Youth Resources.

• White Center Food Bank. Each year, Manheim Seattle collaborates with dealers throughout the Seattle metro area, including Bellevue and Tacoma, to help fight hunger in the local community. So far this year alone, the auction has raised over $1,500 as well as hundreds of pounds of nonperishable food items.

• Kent Fire and Rescue. In May, Manheim Seattle participated in a teddy bear drive to support Kent Fire and Rescue, who uses the bears to comfort young victims. With over 100 unique donors including employees, clients and auctioneers, the auction's employees delivered 1,030 teddy bears to the fire department.
