Motorcar Parts of America Sponsors CAWA's 2016 Dinner Meeting

CAWA--the California Automotive Wholesalers' Association--has announced that Motorcar Parts of America, Inc. will be the exclusive sponsor of their 2016 Gala Dinner in conjunction with the annual AWDA, AAPEX and SEMA trade shows being held in Las Vegas this November.

The annual gala event is the highlight of the year for the Association, and is dedicated to raising funds for the Association’s scholarship programs. The event also recognizes the outgoing chairman’s service and commitment to CAWA and industry with its “Red Vest” award ceremony.

The gala will be held at Caesar’s Palace on Sunday, October 30, 2016. Additional information about the event is available by contacting programs@cawa.org or (800) 332-2292 ext. 6.

“Motorcar Parts of America is committed to the auto care industry, and we are honored to once again sponsor this year’s gala. MPA’s focus is aligned with CAWA’s direction in supporting students and our future leaders,” said Selwyn Joffe, chairman, president and chief executive officer of Motorcar Parts of America. “Education of the next generation of technicians and automotive professionals is important to the future of the automotive industry both in the west and across the United States.”

All proceeds from the event will benefit the CAWA Memorial Scholarship Fund, which promotes quality and high standards through education within the auto care industry. According to CAWA, the highlight will be the winner of the Mort Schwartz Award. This is the highest award granted by CAWA and was named after the program’s founder and former chairman of the board. All of these scholarships are awarded to students in a curriculum leading to a degree or certificate in an accredited college, university or technical institute.
