Thornhill Auto Group Christmas in July

On Tuesday, July 30, 2013 WVOW's Dave Allen and Ernie Shaw broadcast live from the Thornhill Auto Group's Christmas in July event.  Over 1,000 letters to Santa were received over a two week period describing how a car would change the life of the writer or someone they were nominating.  An independent panel of judges was assembled to read all the letters and choose the twenty most deserving finalists.  Last year, Thornhill Auto Group gave away one pre-owned car.  This year they bested themselves by giving away two pre-owned cars.  The winners were Clay Norris of Charleston and Kathy Martin of Logan.  Clay was nominated by his Charleston Newspapers co-worker, Renee Daly.  Kathy was nominated by her pastor, Ron Chambers of New Covenant Fellowship.  Both winners were very appreciative of their nominations and subsequent wins.  The remaining 18 finalists didn't leave empty-handed either.  They were each presented with gift bags containing gift cards and prizes.  The Thornhill Ford Lincoln location was decked out in red and green and everyone was treated to cookies and milk, WiseGuys pizza, and a visit from Santa fresh in from his beach vacation.  Tune in next year to see what Santa and the Thornhill Auto Group do to top themselves.  If you're in the market for a new or pre-owned vehicle make sure to check out Thornhill Auto Group at
