February 2013 - This year's Southeastern Wildlife Expo was another amazing event showcasing a number of Charleston-area venues, as well as the demonstrations, art displays, speakers, and presentations themselves.  A great event every year, and one that outdoor and animal lovers should not miss.  Best described on the event's web page, here is a bit of background on the 2013 event: 

"Now in its 30th year, the Southeastern Wildlife Exposition has grown to be the largest event of its kind in the nation, attracting over 500 artists and exhibitors from around the globe who present their offerings to over 40,000 attendees. A 3-day celebration of nature that has earned a reputation for excellence, SEWE now hosts the world's foremost experts in wildlife and nature art, as well as conservation research and environmental education. 

Established in 1982, the first Southeastern Wildlife Exposition took place in February of 1983, with approximately 100 exhibitors and 5,000 people in attendance. Its goal was, and is, to produce an event which contributes significantly to the economy while promoting the conservation and preservation of nature and wildlife through its educational outreach programs and its focus on the visual arts. 

The Southeastern Wildlife Exposition is a critical part of the South Carolina and Charleston calendar. Run with the utmost professionalism and pride, an effort that began as a small winter diversion has now become the largest annual event to take place in South Carolina and one of the most popular and successful events in the country." 

And as we said before - the dogs are our favorite, and they did not disappoint this year!

2012 Crews Share The Love Events - The Charleston Animal Society


Share The Love 2012 - Crews Subaru kicked off another great Share The Love Event with our long time partner, The Charleston Animal Society!  On Saturday, December 1st, from 11 AM to 3 PM, we had a ton of Subaru pet lovers stop by Crews Subaru of Charleston, on 8261 Rivers Ave, for a day of pet fun and support. 

Animals from the Charleston Animal Society were onsite and available for adoption, Alton and Aaron the wonder dogs who survived being neglected and almost drowned were with us and everyone saw their amazing progress and recovery, numerous pets came to get their picture taken with Santa Paws from 11 AM to 3 PM, and we had a great number of people drop off a gift for the animals at the shelter.  Our wish list for the animals included (and we will still accept any donations):

  • Kong Toys, Treats, and Towels
  • Canned cat and dog food
  • Cat Litter
  • Office Supplies like pens and copy paper
For a little local slant on how the Share the Love event has helped...
Subaru funded the ASPCA Project Orange pilot cities to the tune of $250,000 each, and Charleston was one of those cities. The recipients locally were the Charleston Animal Society and Pet Helpers. Project Orange was the original name of the Spay and Neuter program. ASPCA directed funds to Charleston from Subaru: $384,000 over 4 years!  So come on out to Crews Subaru to help keep this great funding flowing!

By the end of the Share The Love Event, Subaru will have donated nearly $25 million to charities. When you buy a new Subaru, we will donate $250 in your name to one of 5 designated charities. For 2012: ASPCA, USO, Alzheimer Association, Meals on Wheels, and Make A Wish. This year, we are once again teaming up with the Charleston Animal Society and East Cooper Meals on Wheels!



2012 Crews Share The Love Events - East Cooper Meals on Wheels

Share The Love 2012 - We are once again kicking off the Share the Love campaign with our friends at East Cooper Meals on Wheels! Last year, East
 Cooper received an amazing grant from Subaru of America, Inc. for their efforts during the Share the Love Event! And this year, we are going for more of the same to help our Lowcountry seniors. Recently, Ken, Summer, and Carrie Ann got us started by helping out with one of the East Cooper delivery routes, and we have more on tap!

Now through December 31st - To help out East Cooper Meals on Wheels even more this year during the Share The Love Event, we are kicking off a "Stuff The Trunk" event this Saturday (Dec. 1st) at the showroom.  Stop in and bring a non-perishable breakfast item to help us "Stuff the Trunk" and beat hunger for Lowcountry Seniors.  We will keep stuffing the trunk until December 31st, when we deliver everything we have accumulated to East Cooper Meals on Wheels!  Items needed include healthy cereal, instant oatmeal, instant grits, granola bars, protein bars, and juice. And when you drop off any of these non-perishable breakfast items, Crews Subaru of Charleston will give you 15% off an oil change or 10% off all other services (cannot be combined with other offers).  Helping each other is how we like the holidays to be a Crews Subaru!

December 12th - On December 12th we were back out at East Cooper Meals on Wheels to help pack meals and take on two different delivery routes. East Cooper is always looking for help, so check out their volunteer activities - they are always happy to have more hands helping.

December 31st - December 31st is when we head out to East Cooper to deliver everything we gathered from the Stuff The Trunk effort, and we will once again be helping pack and deliver meals with East Cooper staff!  After this event, watch for another great post that showcases everything we have done with East Cooper to date - it will be exciting to see the final "product" and see how East Cooper is once again making a huge difference beating hunger with the seniors in our area.

By the end of the Share The Love Event, Subaru will have donated nearly $25 million to charities. When you buy a new Subaru, we will donate $250 in your name to one of 5 designated charities.

2012 Crews Event - 12th Annual Bocce Bash


May 2012 - What do you get when you combine 32 Bocce courts, 32 sets of Boche balls, 128 teams of four, and they all come together on the Charleston Battery Soccer field on Daniel Island this May 19th? The 12th Annual Bocce Bash - a great Lowcountry event that generates needed funds for the South Carolina Special Olympics.  The tournament is a bracket-style competition, held with 32 courts, and 4 teams per court. The morning competition is round-robin play with the highest scoring teams returning after lunch for single-elimination play.  Lunch will be provided to players from a truck rodeo that will include Taco Boy, Daniel Island Grill, and Hubee Dee's.  We had a great time at the event and BOTH of the Crews Subaru teams made it to the "Sweet 16" of the tournament!  Thanks to everyone that came out, and we hope to see you next year for an even bigger and better event for Special Olympics!

May 2012 -
 We had a great time at the Charleston Dragon Boat Festival and we were proud to be a sponsor of this year's event. This year's event raised more than $100K for cancer survivors!  Amazing!  If you have never seen a dragon boat race, you have to come out and watch next year - it is like nothing you have seen before.  From the Charleston Dragon Boat website, "Is this fun, or what?  Dragon Boat Charleston is South Carolina's FIRST dragonboat team.  Dragon Boat Charleston offers recreational, cancer survivor and community paddling.  As we like to say, "there is a boat for everyone."  Hope to see you next year to help contribute to a great cause.  Crews Subaru will be there again gettin' our dragon on!
