Fun and Sun and great BBQ!

Tinley Park, July 22, 2014 – Apple Chevrolet, one of 59 Chevrolet dealers from the Chicago area that partnered with local youth baseball leagues for the 2014 baseball program, has concluded a successful season with Tinley Park Bobcats Little League. Apple Chevrolet provided Tinley Park Bobcats Little League with new equipment, a monetary contribution and an opportunity for community members to raise funds for the league via a Test Drive fundraiser.

“We’re glad we were able to extend Chevrolet’s commitment to spreading joyful play to the members of our community,” said Chet Palumbo, Finance Manager for Apple Chevrolet.

Apple Chevrolet partnered with the Tinley Park Bobcats Little League because of the league’s proximity to the dealership. Equipment donated by Apple Chevy included items such as bags, batting tees, catcher’s gear, water bottles and Chevrolet Youth Baseball T-shirts. The sponsorship also included youth clinics featuring current and former MLB/MiLB players and coaches, and instructors from Ripken Baseball and the Major League Baseball Players Alumni Association.

“We truly enjoyed being involved with Tinley Park Bobcats Little League this year,” said Palumbo. “This partnership gave us the opportunity to support the love of the game and we are thrilled to have achieved such positive results for the community.”

In 2014, more than 1,600 Chevrolet dealers participated in Chevy Youth Baseball. Since the program began in 2006, Chevrolet has made a positive impact on more than 3.6 million children by bringing a unique experience to their community.

We’re BBQing for the Troops Again – Join Us!

BBQ for the Troops

On Saturday, July 19th, 2014, Tinley Park dealership, Apple Chevy, will host its second annual USO Barbecue for the Troops fundraising event from 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m., as part of the Chicago Automobile Trade Association (CATA). The goal of the event is to raise awareness and funds for local troops, as well as their families.

Absolutely one hundred percent of the proceeds raised during the barbecue will support troops both deployed and at home, as well as military families; wounded, ill, and injured troops; and families of the fallen.

“It is an honor and a pleasure to be hosting this barbecue for the second year in a row on behalf of the Chicago Automobile Trade Association and the USO,” said Tom Gorham, Internet Sales & Marketing Manager, Apple Chevy. “The USO is often our troops’ ‘home away from home’ in foreign countries and serves our sons and daughters, brothers and sisters, fathers and mothers in uniform. We had a lot of fun and raised substantial funds for the USO last year. We hope that all who know us in our community will join us again this year.”

During the event, guests can enjoy hot dogs, brats, chips, drinks, and other typical barbecue foods. There will also be games, prizes, an inflatable obstacle course. The local Cub Scouts will offer a car wash. Visitors will also have the opportunity to win a $200 Gas Card by purchasing raffle tickets.

All donations will go to the USO (United Services Organization). A DJ will be playing “patriotic music” during the event, and the posting of the flag will be held at 12:30 p.m. along with a 21 gun salute.

In addition, for every car sold that day, Apple Chevy will donate $25 to the USO. Featured vehicles at the event include the all-new 2014 Chevrolet Impala, the 2015 Chevrolet Tahoe, and the 2014 Chevrolet Silverado High Country.

For more information, please contact Tom Gorham at (708) 429-3000 or by emailing him at tgorham@applechevy.com. If you wish to donate online, please visit www.teamuso.org/barbecueforthetroops/apple_chevrolet.

The Mary Kay team at Apple Chevrolet

Mary Kay offers cosmetics in over 35 countries through more than 3 million Independent Beauty Consultants and has a legacy of giving back to their community. Beauty Consultants (salespeople) are offered incentives and can earn the use of a new car for one year. The cars are presented at the dealership where the vehicle has been leased and the local Mary Kay team turns the delivery into a presentation. The presentations are often inspiring for both the recipient and the team.

Apple Chevrolet was fortunate to be host this past week for the presentation of a new 2014 Chevrolet Equinox to Beauty Consultant Christelle Kazotin who had her own inspiring story to tell. The entire team of representatives were both fun-loving and professional and a good time was had by all. Thank you Mary Kay for choosing Apple Chevrolet. We look forward to doing it again!
