Our dealership has always been somewhat active in our local community events. We have always supported local charities. we made a decision a year ago to continue this and actually ramp it up. We also decided that every event that the dealership supported should have one of our staff members present. we purchased a tent and lots of swag to give away! We also decided to make sure that we play this up in social media.

 We feel that our efforts have been a success. This is however extremely hard to measure! Our Facebook audience has grown a lot but I can only tell you of a few people that we have sold cars too that we met at an event.

 This a link to a landing page that we created to hilite some of the  events that our Hyundai store has been involved with.
