Capitol Chevrolet of Montgomery Drives For A Purpose
For the 6th year in a row Chevrolet & its dealers are teaming up with the American Cancer Society to take on breast cancer. This year everyone can show their support by simply telling us who they drive for with #iDriveFor campaign. Capitol Chevrolet of Montgomery began the campaign on 10/9 and has already seen an outpouring of support for this worthy cause, by visiting to dealership, posing with the iDriveFor frame & posting to their Instagram & Twitter accounts. For every post, Chevrolet will donate $5 to the American Cancer Society for Breast Cancer Awareness.
Proudly Supports Our Community
Capitol Chevrolet is proud to partner with numerous Montgomery & River Region community events. We want our customers to have the very best car buying experience possible all while treating our customers respectfully, honestly & fairly. We believe that the well-being of the communities in which they work directly relates to the success of our dealership.
Capitol Chevrolet of Montgomery, in partnership with the Capitol City Corvette Club, hosted the first annual Cruisin' the Boulevard car show. Benefiting Hospice of Montgomery, the day was filled with live entertainment, face painting, balloon art, refreshments, and, of course, awesome cars. On display were Corvettes, Camaros-even a 1971 Chevy SS. In total the day raised $1,900 for an organization dedicated to loving care in the community.
Every second Saturday in April through August, the entire city as well as visitors are invited to Riverfront Park for a family-friendly event. Capitol Chevrolet is honored to be a proud sponsor of 2nd Saturdays at the Riverfront. Be sure to stop by our tent and check outour vehicles by the Riverfront every second Saturday now through August.
Capitol Chevrolet had a 2nd Annual Easter Egg Hunt to support the March of Dimes. Kids of all ages had a wonderful time at this event all while helping babies. While the event was free to the public, everyone was encouraged to bring a $1 donation for the organization. We were pleased to have River Region's ambassador family, The Jones', in attendance this year.
Capitol Chevrolet was proud to sponsor Relay for Life of Montgomery this year. Relay for Life is the American Cancer Society's largest fundraiser. The funds raised at Relay for Life go toward grants and research -- research that will hopefully cure the disease that has touched and impacted us all. Nationwide, the Relay for Life movement raises $400 million every year.
Since 2005 the foundation has awarded 58 scholarships to high school seniors living in Central, AL. Capitol Chevrolet and Classic Buick GMC Cadillac were proud to be the exclusive automotive sponsors for their premier fundraiser, a golf tournament in its 8th year. Our two teams of golfers, comprised of technicians, service advisors & loyal customers really enjoyed themselves at the tournament as they golfed for a cause.
In honor of the American Heart Association, Capitol Chevrolet participated in the annual Go Red for Women movement. The first Friday in February, Capitol Chevrolet donned their fiercest red to draw attention to the fact that heart disease is not just a man's issue. Each year, 1 in 3 women die of heart disease and stroke. National Wear Red Day is a special day to bring attention to this staggering fact and bring realization to the fact that 80% of cardiac events can be prevented with education and lifestyle changes.
