Join Jeff Gordon Chevrolet in Support of Oasis NC for Autism Awareness Month

Wilmington NC Dealership to Donate $25 for Every Sale, School for Children with Autism Hold Art Auction

In honor of Autism Awareness Month, the team at Jeff Gordon Chevrolet is working hard to help our local non-profit day school for children with autism, Oasis NC. Our General Manager has made a promise to donate $25 for every new and pre-owned vehicle we sell throughout the month of April to contribute to the school’s scholarship fund.

To help spread the word, the amazing kids of Oasis NC took time out of their very busy schedules last week, before they went on Spring Break, to stop by the dealership to check out some new Chevrolets, meet some of the dealership staff, and tell us a little more about their school. Check it out here:

Jeff Gordon Chevrolet also ran a Malibu Giveaway for all donors to Oasis’ campaign.  For every $50 an individual donated, they would get a chance to win a 2016 Chevy Malibu.  Unfortunately, our winning donor didn’t win the Malibu in the final game, but she did get two tickets to this year’s Coca Cola 600! And, we got some great photos!

Background
For Leap Year 2016, Jeff Gordon Chevrolet, along with Enterprise Rent-A-Car and the Wilmington Hammerheads gave the students of Oasis NC a day of fun and soccer at the Capelli Sports Center in Wilmington, NC.

Our #DayItForward efforts were part of Oasis NC‘s “Buy the Bus” Campaign – A fundraiser to help the school get a bus or van to allow them to transport the students to and from activities around Wilmington without having to take multiple trips by having to use their personal vehicles. We look forward to seeing what they pick out and watch them grow in the near future! Visit their website or Facebook Page for additional details on how you can get involved.
