CARSTAR 76, located in Grand Rapids, MI, found a new way to connect with their local community this fall – helping a local family set sail in a CARSTAR-branded kayak.
They partnered with the Byron Center Chamber of Commerce for its annual Community Expo, but added a unique twist for a kayak giveaway – a popular sport in the Great Lakes region. Through a Facebook promotion, CARSTAR 76 enlisted contestants, and the winners -- Stephen and Andrea Shepherd – were drawn at random.
“The winning family visited us at CARSTAR 76. They were extremely grateful and very happy to win,” said Laurie Ryba-Williams, Marketing Manager of CARSTAR 76. “Stephen told us his parents have kayaks and live on a lake. Now, their children can’t wait to kayak with their grandparents. It’s great to meet folks in our community and help them have fun and create memories with their families.”
CARSTAR 76 is located at 174 76th St SW, in Grand Rapids, MI. They were named CARSTAR Franchisee of the Year in 2016.
