ARIES Jeep Build to Benefit Folds of Honor & Gold Star Teen Adventures
In 2015, ARIES Automotive, a fast-paced marketer and innovator of truck, Jeep, SUV and CUV accessories, had the privilege of being involved in the NSF1 Jeep build, partnering with The AAM Group to benefit the Navy SEAL Foundation. This year, ARIES has partnered with Starwood Customs and KEG Media for a very special Jeep build, benefiting Folds of Honor and Gold Star Teen Adventures (GSTA).
In 2004, during Operation Iraqi Freedom, Army SPC Stephen P. Downing II, assigned to 2nd Battalion, 17th Field Artillery, was killed by enemy fire while conducting combat operations in Ramadi, Iraq. SPC Downing left behind his wife Leann and his two children Taylor and Stephen. The Downing family has directly benefited from the help and support provided by Folds of Honor and Gold Star Teen Adventures, and they will be using the Jeep to bring awareness to both charities.
The Folds of Honor and Gold Star Teen Adventures Jeep build features a number of unique ARIES products, including:
ARIES Jeep one-piece bumpers
ARIES Jeep hood and roof LED mounting brackets
ARIES Jeep inner fender liners
ARIES Jeep heavy-duty spare tire carrier
Michael L. Daggett, president of Folds of Honor Indiana said about the Jeep build, "Folds of Honor is doing amazing work to honor the sacrifice and educate the legacy of our nation's most respected heroes, but the need is still great. Our greatest challenge continues to be our ability to connect more donors to the mission as the pool of applicants continues to grow. This visual reminder will have a tremendous impact on our ability to raise awareness to the need and beautifully spread the word."
Kent Solheim, founder of Gold Star Teen Adventures, had this to say: "Gold Star Teen Adventures is extremely appreciative for the tremendous support we have received from ARIES Automotive. It is through efforts like this that we can continue to provide programs for the children of fallen service members. This Jeep will help raise awareness of Gold Star Teen Adventures' mission of making a difference in the lives of the surviving youth of our nation's fallen service members."
On October 31 at the 2016 SEMA Show in Las Vegas, NV, the Jeep will be unveiled at the ARIES SEMA booth preview event (booth #34031). Click here for a preview video! Stay tuned to ARIES Facebook and Instagram for live updates on what’s new for 2017.
