The Greater New York Automobile Dealers Association

has brought its dedication to community service to East Side House Settlement for more than two decades by opening the doors of the New York International Auto Show for an annual Gala Preview benefit. The GNYADA partnership with East Side House is one of a number of initiatives that demonstrates the collective commitment to the community of auto dealers across our area. Families still own a large percentage of dealerships and they want to make a positive difference in the communities where they live and work.

The New York International Auto Show

is North America’s first and largest-attended auto show. It showcases the incredible automotive technological advances taking place in the industry and celebrates the latest cars, trucks, SUVs, sports cars and cross-over vehicles available at dealerships today. The Show also includes a huge collection of concept cars, elegant classics and exciting exotic vehicles, aftermarket accessories, music, celebrities, family activities and entertainment for all.
