Car Wars Benefits the United Way

CarWars We had a lot of fun as the beneficiary of the gigantic Car Wars event last March at the John Paul Jones Arena. UVA Community Credit Union and four area car dealerships hosted Car Wars, Charlottesville's largest auto event in history, at the John Paul Jones Arena in March. The event was a huge success for the community, attracting thousands of people to the family-oriented, four-day event that featured great deals on new & used autos of 21 makes and models with a portion of every sale devoted to helping the central Virginia community through a donation to United Way-Thomas Jefferson Area.

Yesterday, representatives from the dealerships and the credit union came to our office to present us with a check for $3,500, which we will put to good work helping those with the greatest needs or at the greatest risk in our community.

Thank you to the wonderful folks at the UVA Community Credit Union for organizing everything, and for including us as the beneficiary. And thank you to Jim Price Automotive, Brown Automotive, the Colonial Auto Group and Battlefield Ford for working together for the common good.
