Ricky and Dianne Benton received the 2015 Tire Business Tire Dealer Humanitarian Award. Dianne Benton — the first woman to receive the award — and Ricky were presented the award Nov. 2 at the Tire Industry Association’s annual Tire Industry Honors event during the 2015 Specialty Equipment Market Association Show in Las Vegas. As part of their recognition, the Bentons also received a special medal symbolizing their efforts in giving back, and Tire Business donated $2,500 to the Lake Waccamaw, N.C.-based Boys & Girls Home of North Carolina., the Bentons’ designated charity. "There is an old saying that those who are blessed are supposed to bless others. We just feel like we are supposed to give back, especially in the community in which we live.” -Dianne Benton
