On Sunday we gathered to honor the nine finalist in our Vehicles for Vets promotion and award one of them a brand new car from The Basil Family of Dealerships. All summer long, nearly 800 nominations were received from family and friends for veterans and active military members who deserved a new vehicle from Basil!

While we wish we could give them all a car, the lucky winner was Nicholas Green! Nicholas was a member of the USMC and was nominated by his wife Stephanie.

While we couldn't give every finalist a car, they did walk away with a $500 American Express prepaid gift card. Thank you to everyone who nominated a veteran or active serving military member through this promotion.

Thanks to your generosity, The Basil Family of Dealerships helped raise over $50,000 for our local veterans and active military! Special thanks to The Veterans One Stop Center of Western New York, and Ebenezer Ale House!
