Three local families shared in the $10,000 Christmas on Us giveaway from O’Connor Chrysler Dec. 21. The dealership also gave away $10,000 to the Chilliwack Children’s Foundation.

Christmas comes early for Chilliwack families

Local dealership gives back in a big way!

Christmas came early for three Fraser Valley families, and many local children!

On Dec. 21, Chilliwack’s O’Connor Chrysler team hosted its Christmas On Us celebration.

“We wanted to put together an event solely for the children – it was our way of saying thank you to the community, because we couldn’t do it without you,” says Carson Grant, O’Connor Chrysler general manager.

So not only did the dealership host a community Christmas party, but they also gave away $20,000!

Anyone who had purchased a new or pre-owned vehicle from Oct. 1 to Dec. 15 had a chance to win a $10,000 cash – just in time for Christmas.

Not only that, but the longstanding local dealership also committed to donating another $10,000 to the Chilliwack Children’s Foundation, which provides medical, dental, education and wellness necessities for children in need.

It all came together in one amazing party!

The community was invited to join the fun with seasonal celebrations, a visit from Santa, presents for the children and of course, to watch the reverse draw live!

And then there were three…

When only three families were left and the $10,000 still hadn’t been won, the dealership offered the remaining families the chance to split the amount evenly … if all agreed.

They did, and each went home with an amazing holiday gift of $3,333!

Following the draw, Grant was also thrilled to present $10,000 to the Chilliwack Children’s Foundation. “We knew the money would let us help children in need right here in our community,” he says.

The need was made all the more real with the visit from a local family whose three-year-old was coping with a leukemia diagnosis, as they shared the impact the Foundation had made on their lives.

That opportunity to make a difference is all part of the O’Connor Chrysler vision. “We’re a family-run business and we take pride in our city, and we want to be that leader – not only in our customer service, but also in the community,” Grant explains.

More to come in 2019

While the holiday give-away topped off an amazing year for O’Connor Chrysler, Grant is excited about the year ahead. Last year also saw a donation of $6,500 to the BC Cancer Foundation, and similar initiative is expected this year, in addition to more support for local families.

More community events are also in the works, including their second annual summer car show – expected to be even bigger and better this year!
