Pontiacs With A Purpose Pontiac Celebration
The "Pontiacs With A Purpose" Pontiac Celebration event grew out of the minds of Rick Digiacomo and PontiacRegistry.com's Larry Kummer, as a way to bring Pontiac enthusiasts together to raise money for worthy charitable organizations, after Rick's grandson was diagnosed with cancer.
