When the Make-A-Wish Foundation learned of Aaron's dream of refurbishing the 1990 Integra, they contacted several suburban Minneapolis automobile-related businesses. One of those called upon was Frank Govekar, General Manager of ABRA Auto Body & Glass-Woodbury, MN. "We've repaired and refinished the whole vehicle," stated Govekar.
Govekar was especially grateful to his team members that donated their time to work on this project. "This is the first time we've ever done something like this," Govekar continued. "I was surprised that all the men wanted to jump in like they did on their own time and repair this car for him. All of their work was volunteered time."
In addition to the work done by ABRA Auto Body & Glass, White Bear Acura performed all of the mechanical repairs. The repaired Integra was presented to Aaron and his family on Thursday, September 29, 2005 by the staff of ABRA-Woodbury and White Bear Acura.
