Freedom Honda is holding a contest in which a Colorado Springs park with the most votes will receive $10,000 for improvements.
The rules are easy:
First, go to Freedom Honda’s Facebook page by searching for FreedomHondaCS.
Second, hit “like.”
Then click on the “10K Park Makeover” tab.
Finally, vote for one of 15 pre-selected parks.
The park with the most votes will get the $10,000 makeover.
The contest starts today and runs through March 15.
The winner will be announced on Facebook on March 16.
Freedom Honda, which opened in early October 2011 and has 53 employees, is part of the Piercey Automotive Group family of dealerships. The 40,000-square-foot car dealership is located at 4955 New Car Drive in Powers Auto Park.
“They’ve come here not only to help our community with some really fine automobiles, but also they want to be a corporate citizen, and they certainly are that,” Mayor Steve Bach said Wednesday morning during a press conference at America the Beautiful Park.
“This really sets the pace for the business community,” Bach said. “I hope other businesses will look at this as an example of how companies can partner with the city of Colorado Springs and do great things.”
Amy Triandiflou of PR agency Vladimir Jones said Freedom Honda worked with the city’s Parks and Recreation Department to identify parks that needed some “TLC.”
“It’s based on traffic and need at the park,” she said. “As a pilot program, we launched this using their recommendation. And who knows? It will hopefully evolve in the future.”
