During Honda’s “Really Big Thing Sales Event,” Potamkin Honda in North Miami Beach was the venue for one of the most exciting Aventura Marketing Council networking receptions featuring a gala grand prize drawing event for a 2010 Honda Fit.
The “really big” occasion marked the culmination of the second charity raffle sponsored by Potamkin Honda, raising thousands for 28 non-profit organizations belonging to the AMC. Response was phenomenal as thousands of $20 raffle tickets were sold, with 100% of the proceeds going towards supporting those less fortunate, education, medical research, cultural arts and many more worthy causes.
A “really big” turnout of business and community leaders attending the event enjoyed entertainment courtesy of ImageSound Americas and Joanie Edwards’ Little Theatre School of Performing Arts in Aventura featuring talented performers Evan Fuerst, Lesley B. and Robin Avery accompanied by Paul Banyan.
Sharing the winning spirit of Potamkin Honda, dedicated to “making every customer a friend,” Barry Frieder, president and COO, extended a “really big” warm welcome to guests. “The Potamkin family believes in giving back to the community,” he said. “The Potamkin Foundation has donated over $12 million to charities since its inception. Given the current economy’s effect on charitable contributions, we felt it would be fitting to donate a 2010 Honda Fit for the charity raffle.”
With models like the Fit, Accord, Civic, Element, Ridgeline, CR-V and S2000, Potamkin Honda “has something for every taste, and every need.” The showroom, conveniently located on Northeast 163rd Street and Dixie Highway, also offers preowned cars, repairs performed by expert mechanics and the “Potamkin Preferred Customer Program” -a no-cost VIP discount program for local businesses and organizations offering employee benefits such as vehicles for just 1% over dealer invoice; savings on service, parts and accessories, free car washes; priority service appointments plus many more special perks.
Even more “really big” news is the Honda Fit was named to Edmunds.com’s “Top 10 Most Noteworthy Vehicles of the Decade”; for the fourth year in a row, the Fit has been named one of the “10 Best Cars” by Car and Driver magazine; and the Fit has also been named a “Top Recommended Vehicle” by Edmunds.com in its 2010 New Car Sedan Buying Guide.
The “really big” moment at the networking reception came when cheers rang out for raffle winner Shay Taoz, parent of a student at the Aventura City of Excellence School, who was thrilled to get behind the wheel of his new Honda Fit – heralded for easy styling, hyper usability and design inspiring everyone who drives it to feel like they can conquer the world!
