INFINITI is once again sponsoring the "INFINITI Coaches' Charity Challenge" as part of its partnership with the National Association of Basketball Coaches (NABC), the NCAA® and ESPN. Now in its seventh year, the program consists of 48 NCAA® Division I men's basketball coaches competing for fan votes in a four-round contest that raises money for charities of the coaches' choice.
INFINITI believes moving forward means making room for the new. So with respect to time-honored holiday traditions passed down through generations, the brand is empowering drivers to start their own legacy. This season of giving, INFINITI is partnering with the Arbor Day Foundation to plant 35,000 new trees on behalf of our drivers.
This year, Infiniti donated more than $1 million to a variety of coaches' charities as part of the brand's ongoing corporate partnership with NCAA® and the National Association of Basketball Coaches (NABC). Allyson Witherspoon, director Marketing Communications and Media, Infiniti USA, presented the checks to the winners at Infiniti Americas Headquarters in Tennessee.
