A few reminders for the rest of March

As we have skated to the other half of March, a tough time of year weather wise, those of us at the Toyota of Naperville Blog thought it would be a good idea to throw out a couple of reminders of some cool things going on at the dealership and in Toyota’s world in general. First, we would like to remind you that we are just a little under two weeks away from the start of the annual Test Drives for Autism Fundraiser. This is a big opportunity for the organization, we partner with the rest of the dealerships under the Dan Wolf Automotive Group umbrella and others in the area. For every test drive we take with a customer, our dealership will donate money to Turning Pointe Autism Foundation. (more…)

The Naperville Test Track is a perfect place for the Test Drives for Autism event to happen.

Test Drives for Autism

It’s the beginning of another April here at Toyota of Naperville, and that means it’s time to kickoff the fourth annual Test Drives for Autism campaign. The goal is to raise $130,000 for Turning Pointe Autism Foundation. Starting today and running through the end of the month, for every person (one donation per household) that test drives any vehicle in the Toyota of Naperville inventory, Toyota of Naperville will donate $20 to Turning Pointe Autism Foundation. Certainly, you must be thinking there is some kind of catch. There is none. It doesn’t matter if you choose to take out a brand new 2014 Toyota Camry with the sport package with the V-6 engine or the 2001 Camry we have in our pre-owned inventory; both will get this deserving outfit one step closer to our goal.
