The Greater Lehigh Valley Auto Dealers Association gave $12,500 apiece to Good Shepherd Pediatrics and Northampton Community College at the May 10 regional meeting of the Pennsylvania Automotive Association at Best Western Lehigh Valley Hotel & Conference Center in Hanover Township, Northampton County. Annually, GLVADA donates proceeds from the preview gala for its auto show, but the gala was canceled this year because of a snowstorm. Regardless, the association’s directors donated $25,000 to the charities.
