Park Place Motors Pledges $250K to LeMay - AMERICA'S CAR MUSEUM

Jan 4, 2008

(Tacoma, WA)  – LeMay - AMERICA'S CAR MUSEUM® is pleased to announce the pledge of $250,000 from The Bingham Family and Park Place Motors of Bellevue, Washington.  The gift, in support of the "Drive for America's Car Museum" campaign, was presented to the Museum by David Bingham, Chairman and CEO, Park Place Ltd.  In recognition for the gift, Mr. Bingham will select a room to be named for Park Place Motors in the new Museum.  Plans are to break ground in 2008 and open to the public by 2010.


"Park Place Motors joins the ranks of other key companies and organizations in the automotive industry that sponsor the Museum and we're delighted at this generous gift given to help us complete the first stage of the campaign," said David Madeira, President and CEO of LeMay - AMERICA'S CAR MUSEUM.  "Park Place – the West Coast's largest luxury, sports and special interest automobile dealership – features new marks such as Aston Martin, Spyker, Shelby and Lotus along with pre-owned Porsches, exotic and collector cars.  Their customers comprise a vital component of our growing audience within the collector and enthusiast communities."   


This multi-year commitment to the Museum will also grant Park Place Motors "official provider" status and their experience with prominent auctions will make them a valuable partner with the Museum in developing a LeMay - AMERICA'S CAR MUSEUM auction.  In addition, Park Place takes community involvement seriously and supports organizations such as Children's Hospital & Regional Medical Center, both through direct contributions and through Team Seattle and SOVREN, two groups of Northwest racecar drivers.
