Heroes for Children - Thank You!
What an amazing morning at The Shops At Legacy in Plano, Texas. Boardwalk Auto Group was proud to sponsor Heroes for Children to support families with children who have cancer. 800 individuals participated in the race and most importantly, raised thousands for these special families. Thank you for supporting Heroes for Children in our dealerships throughout the month of September. Your support and generosity is changing lives.

My daughter Angelica Jones passed away on December 14 this past year. She was a beautiful girl who had a bright spirit to match her bright red hair. She was about to turn two when she passed away. She spent most of her second year of life at Children’s fighting AML and Leukemia Cutis. When you lose a child you try to hold on everything that you can. You have this fear that you might forget them. Because of Heroes for Children we were able to ordered her thumb print in gold. Thank you. Now I have a little piece of her next to my heart.
