Loving the environment means more than loving the great outdoors. It means working to preserve it.
It’s our goal to make the pursuit of knowledge available to as many minds as possible.
In a perfect world, hunger would be history and hope would be commonplace. We believe a perfect world is possible.
We should all have a chance to lead a healthy life. We’re aiming to give as many people that chance as we can.
Over the years, Prestige Subaru has maintained an active role in the vibrant community of Asheville, supporting the many organizations that help make our town so great. Prestige has been family owned and operated in Asheville since 1967, and could not imagine a better place to do business and ultimately call home. Asheville boasts a compassionate community network aimed at achieving the best for its residents, always ready with a helping hand. Groups such as the Asheville Humane Society, Riverlink, the Eblen Foundation, and the WNC AIDS Project are just a few of the conscientious organizations at work in western North Carolina that Prestige Subaru is proud to support in making Asheville one of the most pleasant places to live in the country. As we continue on toward new horizons, our commitment to the Asheville community remains resolute -- this is our Love Promise.
We would like to thank our customers for participating in our E Waste Recycling event during the month of April. With your help, we were able to prevent 4,180 lbs of carbon emissions from polluting the atmosphere. This is equivalent to saving 161 trees, 711 gallons of gasoline, 6,060 plastic bottles, and 27,871 aluminum cans. Thank you for helping strengthen the Subaru Love Promise!
It all started with a wish, a simple wish to ride a school bus. For 7 year old Olivia Landreth, those 7 years haven't been exactly easy. On her 7th birthday, she received her 2nd heart transplant, that's right, 2nd. After complications from her first transplant in 2009, Olivia spent much of her time in and out of Duke University Hospital, which kept her from riding the school bus like most kids. So when Make-A-Wish asked what her wish would be, she replied with the simple wish to ride a school bus. Tony Pelle of Prestige Subaru was watching when Olivia's story aired on the local news. Tony and a crew from Prestige set out to create for Olivia her very own school bus that she could ride at will. Having spent her actual 7th birthday in the hospital, Olivia's birthday party would occur in the following weeks once she had some time to recover from her procedure. Finally, the day for Olivia's birthday celebration had arrived. The Prestige crew set out in the bus toward the celebration to be meet little Olivia. When she came out of the building, upon seeing her bus with her name down the side for the first time, her spirited face beamed, and without missing a beat she exclaimed, "Let's Ride!" Olivia is currently doing great! Her mother says she gets in the bus almost every day, and "loves to show it off." She even has some of her therapies in it, and her teachers use it as her classroom.
Throughout the month of April, we are hosting an E-Waste Recycling Event in our store to collect unwanted electronics. We've arranged to work with a company who will responsibly collect, re-purpose, and recycle your electronic waste. Help us protect our environment. Just show up with your E-Waste and we'll do the rest! The first 50 customers who contribute will receive a complementary environmental badge of ownership. We will accept: LCD Monitors, Cell Phones, Laptops, Tablets, CRTs up to 40", Video Games/Consoles, Fax Machines, DVD/VCR Players, Printers, Computer Peripherals, Switches/Routers, Cords and Wires.
Taste of Compassion proved to be another great success in support of the Asheville Humane Society, and the amazing work they do here in Western North Carolina! It was a phenomenal event once again filled with good people, good music, and goodwill united under one roof in support of a truly great organization. We really believe in the passionate work of AHS and are excited to see the continued support and growing success of Taste of Compassion! The Live Auction of our 2015 Lapis Blue Outback closed at $29,000, with all proceeds going to the Asheville Humane Society. (*Love Bonus*) In the wake of winning his new Subaru and after some reflection, our Charitable Winner decided to double down on goodwill. A name had popped into his mind earlier that night - that name was Quita - and while the Asheville Humane Society received the proceeds from the auctioned Subaru, Quita Mazzina of Humane Alliance Spay/Neuter Clinic here in Asheville is now a proud new Subaru owner, joining the family in a 2015 Outback! Our Charitable Winner had heard of their need for a new capable vehicle, and in an amazing philanthropic win-win, filled that need at Taste of Compassion. Under Quita's stewardship, Humane Alliance has become a national leader in spay/neuter programs and initiatives. We wish you many happy miles in your new Subaru as you continue to make a positive difference in our community! We'd like to extend our thanks and gratitude to the anonymous philanthropist.
