McCarthy Auto Group, a family owned & operated business with 11 automotive dealerships in and around the Kansas City Metro area are proud to announce that they are now the Presenting Sponsor of the Thomas A. Simone Memorial Football Awards. To top off their participation as the Presenting Sponsor, the automotive group is awarding the award winner with a $5,000 college scholarship.

McCarthy Auto Group has been a long-time supporter of high school football programs and athletes in the Metro Area. McCarthy is a founding sponsor of PrepsKC, a media outlet for Kansas City high school football, as well as a patron for 23 $1,000 college scholarships at the annual Greater Kansas City Football Coaches Association Scholar Banquet. McCarthy’s commitment to investing in athletics and continuing education is what drew them to sponsor this year’s prestigious Simone Awards. The recipient of this award is selected by high school football coaches and select media members based on excellence on the playing field.

“Our goal is to grow and support the amazing tradition of the Simone awards on a 12-month basis,” says McCarthy Chief Marketing Officer, Karl A. Kramer. “Like the Simone Family, the McCarthy Auto Group believes in young student athletes and the amazing contributions they pour into our communities.”

The awards now have a new website and increased social media presence that will be updated with new content on former winners, the awards impact on the community and work done by the Simone/Fontana Foundation.

“On behalf of the Thomas A. Simone Awards and the Simone Family, we are pleased to announce a new partnership with the McCarthy Auto Group,” Charlie Simone said speaking for the family. “As an established automotive icon, The McCarthy Auto Group’s commitment to serving Kansas Citians for over 20 years promotes the foundation of the award: Love, Courage, Friendship, Champions.
