Many of our employees grew up in Northwest Indiana and enjoy being involved in many different facets of what the community offers. Check out some of the fun things we like to do when we are not at the dealership. Even the Trunk Monkey gets around!!
Dave Arnell is active member in the Duneland Chamber, Tom TenHove (General Manager) is an active member in the Valpo Chamber, and Paul Pumroy (Commercial and Fleet Manager) is an active member in the Portage Chamber. We love connecting with local businesses and seeing familiar faces in the store!
In 2010, Dave started the Extreme Car Makeover. We asked Northwest Indiana residents to nominate someone deserving of a free car makeover. We have helped over 30 people the past 3 years who now have a vehicle to get them to and from the doctor, work, and school. Our service technicians voluteer their time and Dave covers the parts expense to help as many people as possible. A truly humbling experience!
Chris Dill, our Chevy Sales Manager, plays a big role in the American Greyhound Association. He is currently fostering 3 greyhounds until they find a forever home! Tom Ballestero, our Kia Sales Manager, was also fostering two greyhounds and decided that his home would be their forever home. You can see Chris and his wife at fundraising events, including the Polar Plunge. www.americangreyhound.org
Every quarter, we host an American Red Cross Blood Drive at the dealership. Many of our employees donate regularly, but it is open to the community! The reserve your donation time, call or email Rosalinda at 21-787-9200 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
