Baum Chevrolet Buick has found a unique purpose for one of its pre-owned vehicles: Autism awareness. The dealership recently donated a 2000 Buick Regal to the family of Tyler Auten, a five-year-old Autistic boy from Bloomington, who is trying to raise $13,000 to purchase a special service dog.
The Regal will be turned into a giant chalkboard for kids and adults to draw or write inspirational messages in support of Tyler. Family friend and parent of an Autistic child, Ryan Abbott, plans to feature the Buick at several car shows in Bloomington throughout the summer in hopes of generating additional donations.
