“We are proud to present Wounded Warrior Project with this donation to honor them on Veteran’s Day and humbled by the service they provide to the men and women in our military. Tommy Davis, the vice president of our service centers spearheaded the sponsorship initiative of this and did a wonderful job,” said Steve Allen, AMBEST president. “He worked with our network of operators and vendor partners to achieve our goal of $30,000.00. These fine businessmen and women donated dozens items for auction and thousands to help. This donation would not have been possible without them,” says Steve Allen.” 

Including this donation, AMBEST has given over $82,000.00 to Wounded Warrior Project throughout the past three years, Allen said.
