Why is Patty Peck Honda So Generous in the Community?

January 19th, 2012 by

Patty Peck Honda isn’t your average car dealership. They go above and beyond when it comes to community involvement. Supporting the community has always been important for Patty Peck Honda, and their generosity is simply outstanding. This Jackson area car dealership and their employees are always giving back to the community.

For the past two years, Patty Peck Honda has been a proud sponsor of Marathon Makeover. This program is a 40-week, marathon-training, wellness program helping ordinary people do the extraordinary — train for and finish a marathon. Anyone is welcome to join this race whether you’re an advanced or beginner runner (or even a new or used car owner!) All registered participants were entered to win a 2010 Honda FIT from Patty Peck Honda. Last year, you may have seen the Patty Peck Prize Coupe zipping around the Jackson area. This bright, wrapped Honda CR-Z was all around town. Patty Peck Honda is looking forward to sponsoring Marathon Makeover in the Jackson, MS area again in 2012.

Patty Peck Honda Doo-Dah-Day Blue Car Giveaway

The Honda dealership also donated a new Honda Insight to Blair E. Batson Children’s Hospital during the Zippity Doo Dah® festivities in March 2011. Patty Peck Honda wants to help raise money for Mississippi’s only children’s hospital, and joined in the fundraising efforts to raffle off a new Honda Insight at this family-friendly event. The World Famous Sweet Potato Queens® were great to work with, as well!

Last April, Patty Peck Honda donated a new 2011 Honda Civic to the Diabetes Foundation of Mississippi. This raffle called “Car for a Cure” accepted donations and one lucky winner won a new Civic, courtesy of Patty Peck Honda. Car for a Cure helps save lives in Mississippi and Patty Peck Honda was exceptionally generous to donate such a large prize.

2012 Honda Accord Raffle

Christmas is the time of year for giving, and Patty Peck Honda gave away a big present! The Junior League of Jackson hosted the 31st Mistletoe Marketplace “Simply Sparkling” event, and Patty Peck Honda sponsored the 2012 Honda Accord Sedan Raffle. The Accord raffle tickets were just $20 each and supported over 30 community projects such as Blair E. Batson and the Mississippi Children’s Museum. They were pleased to be a part of this incredible annual community event and hope the money raised is continuing to change lives.

Patty Peck Honda gave another gift during the holidays; they were proud sponsor of Parents & Kids Magazine Christmas Fest, a gift from Patty Peck Honda. This family-friendly event welcomed families to walk around outdoors, see bright lights, hear some music and enjoy being together. Parents & Kids Magazine and Patty Peck Honda had the same vision: to create a Christmas experience. This gift to the community was simply about enjoying the Christmas spirit and spending quality time with family and friends.

The Mississippi Braves and Patty Peck Honda are big supporters of one another. In August 2011, the Mississippi Braves gave away a 2010 Patty Peck Honda Fit to a lucky MBraves fan. All fans that attended a 2011 MBraves game were able to fill out a form for a chance to win the Honda Fit; we hope the winner is enjoying her new Honda! The MBraves currently use a 2011 Honda Pilot and 2010 Honda Accord Crosstour for all of their needs such as global marketing and attending events throughout the Jackson Metro area. Patty Peck Honda is looking forward to partnering with the MBraves in the future.

Not only does Patty Peck give back to various organizations in the community, but also individuals in the community. Patty Peck Honda held a Facebook contest where fans uploaded a video of themselves showing their Honda and why it needed a makeover. One lucky winner won a full makeover of his Honda, courtesy of Patty Peck Honda! This exciting and fun contest brought members from all over the community to this event. The winner owned a 1994 Honda Civic that was in much need of help, and Patty Peck Honda graciously helped his Honda. Take a look at the before and after photos here.

Patty Peck Honda recently held a promotion on their Facebook called “All I Want for My Honda,” in which fans told them what they wanted for Christmas, and Santa Claus granted a few of those wishes! One of the gifts Santa and Patty Peck gave away was a set of tires to one of their customers — her 2006 Honda CR-V now has a new set of shoes, and she simply entered a fun giveaway on Facebook.

“Pack the Pickup” is WJTV’s annual food drive to benefit the Mississippi Food Network. The MFN’s vision is to eliminate poverty-related hunger and help feed needy families in the Jackson Metro area. Patty Peck Honda recently teamed up with WJTV to support “Pack the Pick Up” and provided Honda Ridgelines to transport donations. They helped spread the word about this organization and what they stand for.
Patty Peck Honda sponsored the Cure Sickle Cell Foundation and helped give a voice to sickle cell disease. September is Sickle Cell Awareness Month and last September, the foundation hosted their 5th Annual Sickle Cell Awareness Walk. By sponsoring this event, Patty Peck Honda supported efforts to help educate, advocate and raise awareness about this disease. All proceeds from the walk benefited Mississippi families that suffer from sickle cell disease. Patty Peck Honda encouraged others to walk a path toward a cure.

Patty Peck Honda has also supported the Special Olympics, Walk MS: National Multiple Sclerosis Society, the Salvation Army, and Stewpot Community Services. This is not your ordinary car dealership — it’s amazing how generous they are and how strongly they support the community. If you’re looking for a new or used Honda in the Jackson, MS area, choose Patty Peck Honda. They are #1 in customer service and always take care of their customers!
