CLEAR LAKE, IA – A local company is celebrating its 100th birthday today.

The Pritchard Family Auto Stores hosted a party in Clear Lake in honor of this milestone

William Pritchard, the former owner of The Pritchard Family Auto Stores said, “we’re just throwing a big celebration in appreciation to all of our customers.”

The Pritchard’s raised over $100,000 to donate to 13 different charities in north Iowa and one of their ways of saying thank you to the community was by giving away a new car at the event.

Last year the event had two thousand people in attendance and this year they planned for an extra one thousand people to come out and celebrate their big day.
