CHICAGO A Toyota executive took time out of the busy 2014 Chicago Auto Show to praise the company's charity-minded dealers.

Two of Toyota's local dealers were cited for their work by Bob Carter, Toyota Motor Sales, U.S.A. senior vice president of automotive operations, in a speech to the Midwest Automotive Media Association.

"Let's not forget our outstanding dealer partners, who are some of the biggest contributors to charities in their communities," Carter said.

Randy and Kim Wolf of Lexus of Naperville, Illinois, along with Randy's father, Dan Wolf, Sr., and his brother, Dan Wolf, Jr., of Toyota of Naperville, were cited for founding Turning Point Autism Foundation.

The foundation provides education programs, career preparation and specialized communication training to families and individuals living and learning with autism. The foundation raises money by sponsoring test-drive programs to benefit individuals with autism. Participating dealers donated $20 for each test drive. The 2013 event raised $146,133.

Ronnie Colosimo, dealer principal at Oak Lawn Toyota, was named for his work with Restoration Ministries.

Colosimo founded Restoration Ministries, which helps individuals who struggle with addictions. Services include free residential treatment, along with after-school and performing arts education programs.

Edmunds says: Well-deserved praise for two of Toyota's community-minded dealers.
