Vehicles for Vets Finalist #1: David Zobrist – Army
Once again, the Basil Family of Dealerships has partnered with the Veterans One Stop Center of Western New York to launch “Vehicles for Vets”, a summer-long promotion in which a veteran or active serving military member can win a new vehicle.
Every week, one nomination will be chosen and their story highlighted on Wednesday morning. During the final week, the nine finalists who were selected will be invited to Buffalo Riverworks on Friday, August 18th for the revealing of the grand prize winner!
There will be a final random selection for the winner of the vehicle. Winner chooses from one of six brand new cars or $21,000 in Basil Bucks towards a used vehicle. The person who nominates the winner will receive $1,000 cash!
The first finalist is David Zobrist, and he was nominated by his wife Abigail Zobrist. Abigail writes:
This veteran is a devoted father, friend and son! He’s gone through a lot of obstacles throughout his life as a child and after his time serving. He currently has no vehicle and struggles to be motivated to continue with what makes him happy the most. He was diagnosed with PTSD just this year, for him to rely on others to have his time to get away hinders a lot of his healthy. A new vehicle would bless him and his family greatly. A vehicle would allow him to continue with what makes him happy, but also to help him be able to stay in touch with his family and keep up with his appointments at the VA.
