Tuesday kicked off the five day extravaganza known as Car Wars: The Revolution. Our friends at the UVA Community Credit Union created this event, which features the four largest car dealers in the area: Battlefield Ford, Brown Auto, Colonial Auto and Jim Price Auto. They bring their inventories of new and used cars to the John Paul Jones Arena so that the public can come in and compare, test drive and get a great financing deal from the credit union, all in one location. No driving up and down Route 29 or Pantops trying out all the car models you are considering.
So what does this have to do with the United Way-Thomas Jefferson Area? We are the beneficiaries of the car sale. The more cars are sold, the bigger the donation we will receive at the end of the sale. So if you are in the market for a new or used car, come on down! You'll get a great deal and the community will get a helping hand.
We had a lot of fun with Chewbacca, Princess Leia and C-3PO, who will be making appearances at various times during the sale this week. Eric Pritchett of NBC29 did live interviews during the evening news, and Caroline Emerson, our Vice President and Campaign Director, had some fun with Chewbacca during her interview.
Enjoy the slide show!
