AskPatty Certified Female Friendly Carnival for November 2014
November has lots of stuff going on! It's the month we raise awareness of Child Safety Protection and Drowsy Driving Prevention, and attend SEMA and AAPEX in Las Vegas early in the month, and the Connected Car Expo and Los Angeles Auto Show later in the month. It's a good time to enjoy football tailgating and prepare our cars for Winter before it gets too cold.
Let's not forget "Go for a Ride" day on November 22, and Thanksgiving on the 27th. "Movember" also brings facial hair beneath the noses of the men we know and love as they commit to growing and supporting moustaches to raise funds and awareness for men's health. We'll also be ushering in the holiday season and gift guides at month's end.

They continued their charitable efforts throughout October and into November with a holiday coloring contest in which five entrants could win a gift card for themselves and a donation to their school. How cool is that?
