Arnold Motor, Partners Raise $40,000 For Tori’s Angels

Tori's Angels is a foundation helping children with life-threatening medical challenges.

Arnold Motor Supply and several aftermarket channel partners raised $40,000 leading up to the company’s 32nd golf and leisure event.

Proceeds from the fundraiser have been donated to Tori’s Angels, a foundation helping children with life-threatening medical challenges.

”Tori’s Angels changes the lives of children and families across Iowa and beyond,” said Eric Johnson, managing partner at Arnold Motor Supply. “The son of one of our team members was accepted as the foundation’s 89th sponsored child. Alongside our valued channel partners, we were able to raise enough to help approximately eight more families.”

Tori’s Angels pays for all medical and travel expenses not covered by insurance. Each child is supported from the date of acceptance until his/her 19th birthday. 

Channel Partners Recognized

Arnold Motor Supply also recognized key channel partners during its annual event.

BBB Industries received the Vendor of the Year award for the outstanding value BBB brings to the stores and distribution centers.

“We partnered with BBB on a new category this year and saw immediate results,” said Brad Edwardson, vice president of business development at Arnold Motor Supply. “Once inventory was in place, the BBB team kicked off extensive training and forty-two scheduled days of fieldwork. We couldn’t ask for anything more from a partner.”

The company named Brian Bouwkamp and Craig Johnson of The Heartland Group as Reps of the Year. The Heartland Group represents Rotary wheel-service products and related automotive and industrial equipment.

“Our sales pros have the utmost confidence in Brian and Craig,” Edwardson said. “Their customer service on the selling and support side is why we’ve seen triple-digit growth in that category.”

Arnold Motor Supply created a new award this year to recognize partners working alongside the company as it expands its store locations and distribution points. Arnold named Russ Wilshusen of Schnair Sales the Agency Partner of the Year for always going above and beyond, including helping with new-store setups.

“It doesn’t matter the job, Russ jumps in to help,” Johnson said. “He’s everywhere we need him to be and we appreciate his constant dedication to our company.”
