Sponsorships & Upcoming Events

Sprucing up the Neighborhood

This year, we decided to start a new Subaru Loves the Earth tradition!

One of Subaru’s Love Promises is Subaru Loves the Earth – and we couldn’t think of a better way to honor that Promise than by planting trees in our very own community. Which is why we chose to team up with Tree Trust, a local non profit with a mission of inspiring people to plant trees & make our community a greener, healthier place to live. 🌳

Our group was able to plant over 40 trees – helping to mitigate carbon emissions, filter air and water + provide shade on summer days for years to come!

All FORE a Good Cause

One of our summer favorites!

The 45th Annual Swing Your Birdie Golf Classic – A shining gem in Rochester’s legacy of community events and the longest running golf tournament in our city – this event is more than just a game, it’s a powerful tradition at the Ronald McDonald House, fostering unity and support. In every swing, putt, and chip, we’re reaching out to families navigating difficult and trying times.
We couldn’t ask for a better way to spend a summer day – community, connection, and the game we all love, all while supporting a heartwarming cause. 🏌️‍♂️⛳️

We Love Wednesday’s on Broadway

One Wednesday each month throughout the summer, Wednesdays on Broadway in Spring Valley invites local area businesses & organizations out to celebrate what make the town so extraordinary.

Live music, food vendors, shopping & arts and crafts come together for a pleasant summer night. 😎🍉

This time around – Tyler, Eric & Claire spent the evening showing off the sweet Chevy Trax, inviting the community to the upcoming grand opening party, and getting to know our new neighborhood.
