Picture this: you are told you will be given a car for 4 days to test drive and given money to shop at local shops for a good cause? Sound too good to be true? Well, it happened to me last week.
I was still a little awestruck when I was told I get to shop for Doernbecher Children's Hospital in a Chevrolet car. I was able to make "suggestions" on cars I might like, but nothing was guaranteed. Then the call came in......we will be delivering your Tahoe tomorrow. Whoop! I was excited. I knew my kids would be more excited. We have essentially driven in our smaller sedans forever now; they were excited about the space and the comfort.
I can't even begin to tell you how comfortable and dare I say luxurious the Chevy Tahoe LTZ was. You name it, it was on this car: DVD player, leather seats, navigation, air conditioned seats, and more. It was the perfect car to drive around in and collect items for a gift basket for a good cause.
That good cause is Doernbecher's Children's Hospital. Myself and 14 other local influencers are creating amazing gift baskets that will be auctioned off at the Chevy Shop Social event Thursday, May 21, 2015, presented by Chevy, Traveling Moms, and She Buys Cars. Raffle tickets are just $2 for a chance to win.
You will also be treated to food trucks, samplings of local beverages, live music, and more!
I had a lot of fun assembling my gift basket. The name that best describes my basket is "girly". From local wines, handmade jewelry, luxury soaps, delectable chocolate, and more, it's the perfect basket to get pampered with.
I hope to see you in Pioneer Courthouse Square on May 21!!!
