Event Report

We had a great turn out for our first EV cars and coffee event. There were a couple dozen members who brought their vehicles. Representatives from Power Auto Group, Skyline Ford and Mercedes-Benz and Acura of Salem were on hand to provide new buying options. We had two drawings participants could enter. We had a drawing for a new ChargePoint Homeflex level 2 charger (valued at $599) as well as a $50 bill credit drawing. There were giveaways for adults and children alike. Coffee, donuts and Matchbox EVs were really a big hit!
