When Bill Woodman, CEO of SpaceFitters, attended a Klingberg Vintage Motorcar event in the fall of 2014, he had no idea Klingberg Family Centers would become such a big part of his life. Woodman said later that he “was touched by [Klingberg’s] work and wondered how [he] could help.”
Woodman had bid on a 1971 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray on a whim some time ago, and when he woke up the next morning, he had won the car. When the Klingberg Vintage Motorcar Festival came around in 2015, he donated the car to the Klingberg Auto Restoration Program, where high-school students at Klingberg’s Raymond Hill School learn the art of auto restoration and small-engine repairs, so that students could learn about cars while also restoring this iconic vehicle. When a student asked why he would donate such a nice car, he answered, “I did it for you.” Earlier this year, after finishing its restoration, Klingberg auctioned off the Stingray via Barrett-Jackson for $50,000.
SpaceFitters has continued to support Klingberg, sponsoring our car shows since 2015 and Bill Woodman joined our Board of Trustees in 2016. SpaceFitters has also donated furniture for the Children’s Advocacy Center, Raymond Hill School, and our ever-changing furniture needs.
“SpaceFitters has been a great supporter of our work these past few years,” said Mark Johnson, Vice President at Klingberg Family Centers. “We are grateful for connections like these that help us give hope and healing to children and families.”
