Donnie’s own life story reads like a fiction novel, complete with divorced alcoholic parents, two marriages, two divorces, a daughter he didn’t know for years, a thriving business in the automotive industry and the list goes on. But, what’s most interesting is Donnie’s desire and determination to see kids at risk realize their dreams and live more fulfilling lives.
