Autotrader Donates Vehicle in Collaboration with Turner Sports During NBA All-Star
Autotrader has teamed up with Turner Sports and the National Basketball Association for the thirteenth consecutive year to alter the lives of a deserving family with the donation of a new vehicle, presented this year to a recipient of the Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA).
During the regular NBA season, hosts of the Emmy® Award-winning Inside the NBA studio team – Ernie Johnson, Shaquille O’Neal, Kenny Smith and Charles Barkley – faced off in the Autotrader All-Star Drive fantasy basketball challenge. During TNT NBA Tip-Off presented by Autotrader, hosts selected the player that they thought would be the top performer during that night’s TNT double-header with the winner receiving a donation of a new vehicle to the charity of his choice, courtesy of Autotrader.
This year’s winner, Ernie Johnson, was playing to benefit MDA, a non-profit organization committed to transforming the lives of people affected by muscular dystrophy, ALS and related neuromuscular diseases through innovations in science and care. Through searching for a cure and accelerating therapy discoveries, MDA creates a community, participating in educational conferences, events and materials for families and healthcare providers to aid those affected by neuromuscular diseases.
