Gaudin Motor 100 Year PSA


LAS VEGAS (March 1, 2022) – In honor of its historic 100 Year Anniversary, Gaudin Motor Company has pledged to donate $100 for every new and pre-owned car sold throughout the month of March to the Grant a Gift Autism Foundation Ackerman Center. Beginning Tuesday, March 1 through Thursday, March 31, $100 per each vehicle purchased at any of the three Gaudin dealerships, Gaudin Ford, Ford Country and Gaudin Porsche, will go towards furthering The Ackerman Center’s mission to help families master living with Autism.

30 years ago, Ackerman’s son was diagnosed with Autism, catapulting his lifelong mission to provide better resources and care for those affected by Autism in Southern Nevada and beyond. Through several years of hard work, research and dedication, Ackerman alongside a team of exceptional doctors, specialists and supporters, the UNLV School of Medicine launched the Grant a Gift Autism Foundation Ackerman Center. Named after Gary’s son, Andrew Ackerman, the Center is a local organization that aims to help families master living with Autism by providing a multidisciplinary team of physicians, psychologists and behavior specialists who help develop a diagnosis, treatment plan and support services for children with Autism.
Since opening five years ago, The Ackerman Center has assisted over 5,000 families by providing them with medical research, diagnostics, clinical care, speech occupational behavior therapy, family support and education. However, with at least 10,000 individuals in Nevada currently diagnosed with Autism and a staggering statistic of 1 in 44 children in America being born on the spectrum, their work is far from over.
“My family’s life was turned upside down when our son was diagnosed with Autism. We were shocked by the lack of locally available resources to help us navigate this diagnosis,” said Gary Ackerman, Owner of Gaudin Motor Company. “We are thrilled to be able to better serve the local community through The Ackerman Center. However, this care comes at a cost and with thousands of families on the waitlist, charitable contributions are imperative to expand our services.”

Maintaining dedicated to its mission coined by founder George Gaudin over a century ago, “Serving our clients and our communities is more than what we do, it is who we are,” owner Gary Ackerman remains steadfast in leveraging Gaudin Motor Company’s influence to improving the Las Vegas community. A testament to this mission, Gaudin is committed to helping children, youth and their fights fight Autism through programs and services needed in order to live as independent adults with functioning roles in the community.
