Richard Arebelo

Richard Arebelo has always been a fan of charity work. When looking for a vehicle, he chose the 2012 Hyundai Genesis partly because of its body lines, which he says make it a great eye-catcher and conversation starter. Today, he works alongside the Make-A-Wish OCIE Chapter Charity, and attends as many charity car shows as he can. "My vehicle has been the perfect vessel to help spread awareness about charities to car enthusiasts everywhere." he writes.
