Free Car Friday: Chevy Spark Giveaway

On Friday July 6, 2018 Payne Weslaco Chevrolet held their annual Free Car Friday event. Customers were encouraged throughout the week of July 4 through social media and radio to enter their name for a chance to win a Chevy Spark. Perspective winners filed into the event around 5 p.m. to enter their last-minute entries and tour their potential new car.

At 6 p.m. sharp the contest began. Jackie Cervantes, the emcee of the event and General Sales Manager of the store, asked the crowd for a volunteer to pull out the name of the lucky winner. A young volunteer by the name of Emily stepped up and pulled out the name of Jocelyn Gomez. Stunned and surprised, Ms. Gomez approached Jackie to claim her new car. To add to Ms. Gomez’s luck, she said she found out about the contest through Snapchat and decided to enter due to her own car being totaled a few weeks earlier.

The Chevy Spark is the perfect family car, with safety features such as brake assist, rear vision camera, 10 total airbags; entertainment features such as Sirius XM, Bluetooth capabilities, voice command, Apple and Android play compatible, two USB data ports and contains a 6 speaker sound system for amazing surround sound and is WIFI compatible for up to seven devices at a time.

Congratulations to Jocelyn Gomez and her family for their Chevy Spark!

We are so grateful to aid our community members in their time of need.  Being able to help Jocelyn and her new family is what we do best at Payne Motors and we wish her and her family all the best!

Thank you to everyone who attended our Free Car Friday event!

Celebrating the Border Patrol!

The Payne Auto Group Street Team joined other businesses Saturday for the 2018 Border Patrol Picnic.

Held at Mercedes Livestock Show Grounds, the event gives support for the organization, and shows appreciation for local agents.

Hosted by the RGV Sector and the Weslaco Border Patrols Officer’s Association Braggin’ Rights Cook-Off, participants at the event were given prizes for completing a number of activities. These included scavenger hunts, baking competitions and other festival games.

The 2018 Picnic

The 2018 picnic included live music from Chris Marshall of the Payne Street Team, as well as other performers.

Additionally, members of various sectors squared off for a barbecue cook-off. Correspondingly, local members of the community judged cooked meats like fajita, and chicken to see which team earned first place.

“It’s such a wonderful experience,” said Donna Shawhan, Creative Director for the Payne Auto Group. “We are so happy that we get to be out here, and contribute to the support of these men and women.”

The Payne Street Team Attends Chris Young Concert

By Niana Gutierrez | Posted in Community on Monday, April 9th, 2018 at 2:42 PM

The Concert

The State Farm Arena was the place to be Friday night. The excited crowd of country music fans from across the Rio Grande Valley mingled with one another as they waited for Chris Young to take the stage in his third concert in the RGV.

Chris Marshall, along with the Payne Street Team, participated at the concert. Marshall performed in the Beer Garden, located outside the arena, before Young started, and after having completed his set-list. Attendees listened to Marshall’s acoustic covers of “Right or Wrong” and “When You Say Nothing At All” while filling up on beer and tacos. Additionally, vehicles such as the Alfa Romeo Stelvio were on hand so that conert-goes could get an up-close and personal look.

“It’s fun to kind of pre-amp up the people here,” Marshall said. “They get off from work and are just looking for something that will soothe them which makes these type of events, and musicians necessary.”

 

Up Front & Center

The Alfa Romeo Stelvio & Giulia as well as the Volkswagen Atlas on site!
