This year marks the 12th that Ajax Tire has supported the Motor City Car Club’s Autofest event.

Despite the event taking place in Oshawa, owner Carmen Ardente says they are strong supporters of Grandview Children’s Centre.

The reason we’ve always supported it is because of Grandview Children’s Centre. We put all our backing behind this event for the one reason,” Ardente says.

The staff at Ajax Tire has had the opportunity to tour Grandview.

“It’s phenomenal what they do there,” Ardente says.

Autofest marks its 25th anniversary at Lakeview Park in Oshawa on Aug. 25 and Aug. 26. As part of the celebrations, Ajax Tire will be giving away two sets of Bridgestone tires during the event.
