Lindsay Auto Group is helping to support a critical nonprofit organization in the Washington, D.C. metro area in a big way—by offering up a brand-new Lexus RX350 as the top prize for this year’s Sweetheart Benefit Raffle.

 

The raffle, the proceeds of which will benefit Youth for Tomorrow, will be drawn during the Heart 2 Heart Gala on Februrary 9. Hopeful winners have from now until DATE to enter the raffle for the chance to win the RX350, valued at $42,175, as well as a number of other prizes.

 

“Lindsay Auto Group has always been dedicated to our local community, and this is another way in which we can contribute to an outstanding cause,” said Michael Lindsay, president. “Youth for Tomorrow is one of our region’s most important organizations, in my opinion. Anything we can do to help this group raise funds and continue to operate is a worthwhile effort, as their work makes our community a better place in which to live, work and do business.”

 

Youth for Tomorrow, based in Bristow, provides safe and healthy residences for children ages 12-18. The organization offers children and teens a secondary education, along with counseling with licenced therapists. By going through the program, youth reduce the risk factors in their lives and benefit from strong support systems.

 

The black tie-optional Heart 2 Heart Gala is an annual event that helps Youth for Tomorrow raise valuable funds for its important work. With only 2,000 raffle tickets available, the chances of winning the top prize are better than average, and winners have the option of taking home $25,000 in cash if they already have a vehicle they love. Raffle tickets are being sold for $100 each, or six for $500.

 

“The Heart 2 Heart Gala and Sweetheart Ball are great events each year, and we’re always very proud to take part,” Lindsay said. “We encourage people in our community to come out and support this amazing organization, while potentially driving away in a brand-new Lexus. I can’t think of a better way to kick off Valentine’s Day than winning a Lexus RX350.”

 

This year’s Heart 2 Heart Gala is February 9 at the Ritz-Carlton Tysons Corners in McLean.

It will begin with a reception at 6 p.m., followed by a gourmet dinner and comedy show featuring Jeff Foxworthy. Attendees will close out the night with dancing to the high-energy Spectrum Band.

No matter your level of comfort with technology, you’ve probably heard of the world’s leading search engine Google. Internet searches can be indicative of general market saturation, and so we were quite pleased at Lindsay Ford of Wheaton to hear that Ford is in fact the “Most Searched” auto brand of 2012. This is big news for current and potential new Ford owners in the Wheaton, Gaithersburg, Columbia, Silver Spring and Laurel MD areas.

In terms of actual numbers, an incredible 1.2 trillion Ford searches in 146 nations across the world were analyzed by Google this past year. In this annual global trends report, Ford ranked first, even surpassing several automakers with more offerings on the global scale.

The results include findings on specific models as well. They determined that the Ford Fusion Hybrid Sedan and Ford C-MAX Hybrid topped the list of queries in the hybrid/electric vehicle segment.

They’re certainly some of the most impressive models currently on offer here at 11250 Veirs Mill Road Wheaton, MD 20902. The C-MAX boasts a long list of technology options, along with an impressive 47 mpg city and highway rating. And though it isn’t quite as new, the Ford Fusion Hybrid provides a similar efficiency rating, along with a high performance output.

When you’re ready to start talking about owning a Ford vehicle of your own, come talk to one of our associates. We’re on hand to help you out with Ford finance options, or to set you up with a test drive.

inaugurationcadillac2013

In a few days, a fully loaded Cadillac STS limousine will carry President Barack Obama to his inauguration ceremony for his second term as commander in chief. While our current president has made history in a number of ways on his own, Cadillac is also celebrating the fact that it has served as the trusted transportation of U.S. presidents for more than a century.

 

The inauguration of the president has changed significantly throughout the years. Back before the invention of the automobile, presidents would ride in open horse-drawn carriages on their way to the swearing-in ceremony. While William McKinley was the first president to ride in an automobile period, it wasn’t until Warren G. Harding 1921 that a car was used to transport a president to his inauguration instead of a carriage.

 

Throughout the country and across the globe, Cadillac stands for exceptional performance, advanced technology and the best in comfort and style. In short, the company has set the standard for true American quality. This year, the team at Lindsay Cadillac of Alexandria will be watching with pride as the president once again rides to the Capitol for the inauguration event in a Cadillac limousine.

 

Since the days of President Harry S. Truman, Lindsay Cadillac has been delivering outstanding selection and exceptional quality to individuals and families searching for the perfect luxury vehicle. The auto dealership offers both new and used cars and SUVs, including the brand-new 2013 Cadillac ATC, CTS, CTS-V, XTS, SRX and Escalade.

 

Perhaps even more importantly, Lindsay Cadillac has developed a strong reputation for its focus on customer service. Its team remains helpful and informative throughout the purchasing process, giving customers peace of mind as they make their decisions. This high level of service is based on the dealership’s goal of giving all of its customers a better experience each and every time they walk through the doors or visit the lot.
