Jeff Gordon Chevrolet Launches Campaign In Support of Autism Awareness for Fourth Year

April 2nd was World Autism Awareness Day – a day where monuments and landmarks around the globe are lit up blue in support of the cause. Even though Jeff Gordon’s award-winning dealership in Wilmington is not (yet) considered a historic landmark, it will be joining the rest and lighting it up blue with its puzzle piece display, now up near South College Road! JGC Dealership 4-8-2019 Every night throughout the month of April, these pieces will be illuminated to show support for Autism Awareness and get the word out for the dealership’s annual fundraising campaign. If you’re local to the Chevy dealership and see the display, snap a pic (only if it’s safe!) and post it with the hashtag #JGCFamily so we can see it!

Jeff Gordon Chevy’s Annual Fundraising Campaign

For the fourth consecutive year, Jeff Gordon Chevrolet has pledged to donate $25 for every new and pre-owned vehicle sold throughout the month of April to Oasis NC – A local non-profit here in Wilmington, NC dedicated to providing Outstanding Autism Support & Instructional Services for individuals with autism spectrum disorder and their families.

Oasis NC use evidence-based practices and highly individualized services & support to target a broad range of educational, behavioral, social, and communication needs. Funds raised through Jeff Gordon Chevy’s Autism Awareness campaign will go towards supporting all of these helpful practices to its students.

Help Us Support Oasis NC!

Jeff Gordon Chevy is calling on the community to help spread the word on this campaign throughout the month and there are several ways to do that:

  1. Make a purchase! If you’ve been considering upgrading or getting an additional vehicle, now is a great time to explore your options; Not just because of this campaign either – There are some really great incentives available right now, and plenty of selection!
  2. We understand that you may not be in the market now, or even for some time. But maybe you know someone that is… Tell them to at least come by and shop around with us! If they do purchase with us, that will mean money in your pocket for the referral as well (just make sure they mention you sent them.)
  3. Share the Facebook Event on your Facebook profile or Twitter feed to help get the word out about the campaign! Or, just hit the “Interested” button – Every little bit helps!
  4. Make a donation to Oasis NC directly on their website at OasisNC.org/Donate.
  5. Buy stuff on Amazon! When you make a purchase via Oasis NC’s Amazon Smile account, Amazon will donate 0.5% of your purchase totals directly to them. Follow their link on OasisNC.org or log in with your existing Amazon account at smile.amazon.com and search Oasis NC to add them as your charity to support and make sure you always start on smile.amazon.com to make sure your purchases count.

Jeff Gordon Chevy is eagerly awaiting a visit at the dealership from the awesome kids and faculty of Oasis NC later this month. In the meantime, check out their visit from last year below! Feel free follow us on FacebookTwitter, and Instagram for updates on their upcoming appearance and more throughout the month! And of course, make sure to follow and keep up with Oasis on Facebook and Twitter for regular updates on the school and all the fun videos starring the students themselves.

OASIS NC is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization committed to providing Outstanding Autism Support and Instructional Services for individuals with autism spectrum disorder and their families in southeastern North Carolina.

5 Reasons to Spend This Valentine’s Day Weekend in Wilmington

This is a guest post by Allison Donovan of Coldwell Banker – Sea Coast Advantage.

Want to plan something a little different this Valentine’s Day?  The coastal town of Wilmington, NC boasts a variety of experiences you can gift your sweetheart with in any price range.  From foodies to athletes to artsy-types, you are sure to wow even the most difficult to please with everything this charming town has to offer. As a resident of this city for over a decade, here are the top 5 things about the Port City that I’m sure will tug at your heart-strings during your visit…

The Beach

Even off season, we Wilmingtonians love our beaches. You can’t go too far in the Wilmington area without stumbling upon a beach… From Topsail Beach just north of Wilmington, to Wrightsville Beach in the middle and Carolina/Kure beaches just south, we have you covered.  Who doesn’t love a day at the beach? Off season we are lucky to still have beautiful weather most of the year.  I love taking my dog to the beach at this time of the year so he can chase the waves (and an occasional seagull or two).  Nothing makes me happier than to see the smile on his sweet face after a day at the beach.

Historic Downtown

 

Downtown Wilmington is absolutely gorgeous. From the cobblestone streets to the sky filled with a view of unbelievable architecture, you won’t want to miss stopping downtown while in Wilmington.  One of my favorite things to do is to head downtown on a weekend morning, grab a coffee from one of the local coffee shops, and just see where the day takes me.  I usually end up at the Farmer’s Market, buying some fresh flowers for the house, some fresh vegetables, and locally baked goodies. From there I may stop in at one of my favorite boutiques, or meet up with friends for Saturday brunch.

The Food Scene

Speaking of brunch- the food scene in Wilmington is unreal.  Whether it is fresh seafood you are craving or a good home-style southern meal, you will find it here!  If it’s sweets you are after, grab some homemade fudge, ice cream, or a cupcake! We even have restaurant tours to give you a taste of Wilmington where you can go in and meet the chefs of a few area restaurants and bakeries and sample their goods! Is anyone else getting hungry?

The Culture

Enchanted Airlie Gardens
Airlie Gardens | PC: wilmingtonandbeaches.com

Wilmington is splitting at the seams with culture. Take a day and tour one of our many historic antebellum homes, or one of our many museums.  Check out the campus of UNCW or attend a play at the historic Thalian Hall.  I love Cape Fear Community College’s Humanities and Fine Arts Center.  Opened at the end of 2015- they are proving to us that the Wilmington arts scene will continue to get better and better.

The People

love is bald
The Wilmington-Based Non-Profit Organization – Love is Bald – regularly hosts fun events around the area to help raise funds to assist local cancer patients and their families. 

Wilmington residents are second to none.  I love how laid back and friendly everyone is.  It’s rare to pass someone here without receiving a head nod or a smile and a “hello”.  Wilmington is a very active city.  You can find our residents kayaking in the marshes, stand-up paddle boarding the Intracoastal Waterway, and surfing the waves of the ocean.  We love to be out in the sunshine.  Wilmington has a lifestyle unlike no other.  Check us out- I don’t think you will want to leave either!
