Youth Villages receives new car from NBA’s Marc Gasol, Kia Defensive Player of the Year

October 3, 2013

Earlier this year the Memphis Grizzlies’ Marc Gasol on was named the recipient of the 2012-13 Kia NBA Defensive Player of the Year Award.

As part of the award, Kia Motors donated a 2014 Sorento to the charity of the recipient’s choice, and Gasol chose Youth Villages.

Youth Villages recently claimed the award from the Gossett Kia dealership in Memphis. On hand to accept the keys were Chief Human Resource & Information Officer Cliff Reyle and Food With Class Instructor Pia Mitchell, along with one of the students from the program that will use the vehicle.

The 2014 Sorento was presented by Gosset Kia General Sales Manager Robert Johnson and Sales Consultant Hanell Moore.

Youth Villages thanks Marc Gasol, the Memphis Grizzlies, the NBA, Kia Motors and Gosset Kia for this incredible gift.

We also want to congratulate Marc on another award he recently received. Last week the Memphis Flyer announced Gasol was voted Best Grizzlies Player in the weekly’s Best of Memphis poll. Great job, Marc!
