Patriot of the Year Award



Source Interlink Media is recognized for fundraising effort on behalf of the Armed Forces Foundation.


Washington D.C., April 6, 2011—Super Chevy Magazine, a Source Interlink Media publication, was rewarded for its charitable efforts on behalf of the Armed Forces Foundation when it was presented with the Sheldon and Dr. Miriam Adelson Patriot Of The Year Award for 2011.
The Patriot of the Year award is the Armed Forces Foundation’s highest honor for a group or organization. Editor Jim Campisano and Publisher Jim Foos accepted the award for SIM at the Armed Forces Foundation’s seventh-annual Congressional Gala at the Ronald Reagan Building.


Super Chevy Magazine conceived and spearheaded the effort to build a trio of classic automobiles that were sold at Barrett-Jackson Collector Car auctions between 2007 and 2010 and raised a total of $880,000 for the AFF.  Construction of Project American Heroes IV, a 1970 Camaro, is scheduled to begin this summer.


Super Chevy Magazine is the largest all-Chevy publication in the world and has been published for over 40 years. The Armed Forces Foundation’s mission is stated as “serving those who serve” and “to promote the morale, welfare and quality of life of those within the United States Armed Forces community.”
