  • Larry H. Miller dealerships:
  • Twelve of the Tucson- and Phoenix-based dealerships were represented as part of the Larry H. Miller Golf Classic, which raised $400,000 for charities. The funds will be distributed by Larry H. Miller Charities, the charitable arm of the dealerships. The organization focuses donations on groups and programs benefiting women and children in the areas of health and education. “The proceeds from the Larry H. Miller Golf Classic make a monumental difference in allowing us to give back in the communities where we do business,” said Jay Francis, executive vice president, corporate affairs and Miller Family Philanthropy.
