NGK and NTK Brands Help UAF ‘Pour It Forward’ At AAPEX

The Invitational supported the new UAF Coffee Club recurring donor campaign.

NGK Spark Plugs continued its commitment to the aftermarket industry and The University of the Aftermarket Foundation (UAF) at this year’s AAPEX Show with the inaugural Pour It Forward Invitational. The Invitational, hosted by NGK and NTK brands, supported the new UAF Coffee Club recurring donor campaign

Invited guests received a donation to the UAF Coffee Club in their company’s name for visiting the NGK/NTK booth. Invitees then had the opportunity to double the contribution by participating in an in-booth challenge game called the Cliff Hanger Challenge. In all, said a spokesperson, the event raised $2,500 for the campaign.

In addition to the $5 per month Americano level, the program features Cappuccino, Latte and Frappuccino levels of support. To join the club, visit, choose a level of recurring support and complete the form. All contributions are tax deductible to the extent provided by law.
