On October 3, 2009 the GACC South held our Annual Gala, complete with a raffle featuring a 13 month lease of a 2009 Mercedes ML450 Hybrid, courtesy of Mercedes-Benz. The winner was Mr. Gerald Toledo, CEO & President of Global Industrial Components, Inc.
Mercedes’ expansion into Hybrid vehicles makes the ML “the first vehicle in the world to offer gasoline, diesel, and hybrid alternatives. The new ML model, built in Tuscaloosa, Alabama, is fitted with the Two-Mode Hybrid system jointly developed by General Motors, Daimler, Chrysler, and BMW.” (hybridcars.com)
The car offers the classic Mercedes-Benz style and power, but with much greener technology inside. Because of the impressively new technology developed for the car, it actually just became available and Mr. Toledo was able to pick up his car recently at Mercedes-Benz of Nashville.
We would like to thank Mercedes-Benz for supporting our raffle in 2009, the proceeds of which went to SOS Children’s Villages USA.
Congratulations again, Mr. Toledo!
