On September 16th, Miami chic ruled the evening at the Crest Hollow Country Club for the “Pet Peeves” 2015 South Beach Soiree— “Unleashed at the Beach”— benefitting one of Long Island’s premier pet-rescue fundraisers. Pet Peeves is a volunteer-driven, nonprofit organization that raises funds and creates awareness for the work of numerous local animal shelters and rescue groups in both Nassau and Suffolk.

The 12th annual Ford Neighborhood Awards were last weekend, August 8-10, in Atlanta. The awards seek to recognize people and businesses that make a difference in their community.
Award categories included Best High School Coach, Nail Salon, School Teacher, Car Wash/Detail Shop, Church Choir, Soul Food Place, Barber Shop, High School, Barbecue Place, Beauty Salon, Church, and Community Leader.
These people/businesses were nominated by their peers, and four finalists were selected in each category. Voting was then opened to the public to select the winner in each category.
A star-studded cast of celebrities presented the awards, and the event was hosted by Steve Harvey, comedian and host of the popular TV show Family Feud.
As the title sponsor of the awards, Ford gave the winner for Best Community Leader $30,000 to donate to his charity of choice. The winner was Stan Richards of Washington, DC.
“The Ford Neighborhood Awards continues to represent a mainstay within the African American community,” said Shawn Thompson, manager of Ford multicultural marketing. “Each year this show gets bigger, and Ford is excited to be able to present the Community Leader of the Year Award recipient with a check for $30,000 to ultimately give back to the local community.”

Breaking a world record is quite the feat and something that a lot of people have on their bucket list. And well, now Subaru can check that one off the list! Earlier this month 371 Subaru owners got together in the village of Itasca, Illinois and broke the record for “Largest Parade of Subaru Cars.” Sure, it’s a little bit of a wacky record, but they did it!
According to a recent press release by Subaru, “On Saturday, July 13, 2013, 371 Subaru owners from nine states broke the GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS™ record for the “Largest Parade of Subaru Cars” in the world. In addition to breaking the record, Subaru and parade participants supported two very worthy charities — PAWS Chicago and Salute, Inc. Both organizations received $5,000 to support their individual areas of philanthropy.”
So basically it was just a great day for everyone. Money was raised for two great causes, and a world record was broken. How cool is that?
If you’re interested in buying a Subaru so that you can take part in the next parade (if they ever want to raise the bar), stop by Hassett Automotive! We have lots of Subaru’s in stock and we would love to help you find the right one for you.
We hope to see you soon!
