|Time:||10am - 2pm|
|Location:||Whole Foods Market - Columbia
702 Cross Hill Road
Columbia, SC 29205
Whole Foods hosted our event and we blocked off a section of their parking lot. A 20' x 40' tent provided shade for 10 vendors and community service groups (Sunrun Solar, Keep the Midlands Beautiful, ICE engine vs electric motor, National Association of Black Engineers, high school robotics team, event insurance provider, Whole Foods snack table, Nissan Leaf giveaways). Dealers that participated: Dick Dyer Volvo, Audi of Columbia, BMW of Columbia (main sponsor), McDaniels Porsche. Chevy was supposed to attend but declined even after contacting Megan at GM Corporate. Cars ranged from BMW i8 to Teslas to Mitsubishi i-MiEV. Tesla and Leaf owners provided test rides and drives. Weather was perfect!
