“If you talk to anyone in the Aftermarket, they’ll tell you how lucky they feel to be in this industry,” said Cotter Collins, Central Regional Manager, Standard Motor Products, Inc. and YANG Chair. “We’re a group of people who truly care for one another and give back when we can. YANG members agree that it’s important to give back to a community that has provided us with so much; and we’re happy to do it in a fun way. Last year’s YANG TopGolf Fundraiser was a great success as we raised over $12,000 that was donated directly to the Automotive Aftermarket Charitable Foundation. We hope to continue to lead the pack in giving back for years to come.”
