Chevrolet Youth Baseball: VanDevere & West Akron Baseball League

This year, VanDevere is partnering with Chevrolet to sponsor the West Akron Baseball League (W.A.B.L). This sponsorship includes almost $2,000 worth of baseball equipment and a check in the amount of $500. This June 17th, we will also be hosting a Test Drive event at the W.A.B.L fields from 10am – 2pm to help raise an additional $500. Good luck this season and be sure to show up June 17th to test drive a Chevy.

Thrive & Drive: Akron Soap Box Derby Participant

Adding to the list of 2016 VanDevere Thrive & Drive program participants is the Akron Soap Box Derby. This great community organization is selling raffle tickets to raise money for their own cause. These tickets are then entered into a drawing with other participating Thrive & Drive community organizations giving a lucky ticketed individual a chance to win a brand new car from VanDevere. Just another way VanDevere gives back to a supporting community since 1946.

Thrive & Drive Participants: Tallmadge Force / Fury Softball / Baseball

Participating this year in VanDevere’s Thrive & Drive program is Tallmadge Force and Tallmadge Fury Baseball and Softball teams. These teams will be selling tickets with all of our other 2016 Thrive & Drive participants in efforts to raise money for their teams. All money from raffle tickets goes to the teams themselves. All tickets from participating organizations are them pooled together in a drawing for CHEVY CRUZE donated by The VanDevere Bunch.


Thrive & Drive: 2015 Chevrolet Cruze Pickup – Archbishop Hoban High School
