On December 10, 2007, Col-Met Spray Booths hosted a special event at its facility in Rockwall, TX, during which it presented the Wounded Warrior Project with a $10,000 check - the result of fundraising activities that took place around NACE. Juan Arredondo, Sergeant U.S. Army (retired), was there on behalf of the Wounded Warrior Project to accept the donation check.

Sean McEndree, a driver whose truck Ryno (from Trick My Truck on CMT) painted, drove his "tribute truck" to Rockwall to be a part of this event. McEndree's truck honors fallen and wounded soldiers by displaying an Arlington Cemetery scene, a Purple Heart and an American flag. He was a specialist in the 96th Transportation Company in Iraq. Jeff Burke, from Paintline Products Inc., also attended to receive Ryno’s tricked-out go-kart that he won at NACE.
