LIGHTBULB MOMENT OF THE MONTH

Bowman Chevrolet


Bowman Chevrolet and Bowman Auto Center had their Classic Car Show & Easter Seals Raffle, a bi-annual event to benefit the Easter Seals and get the community out to support!

Easter Seals sold 55,000 raffle tickets that were entered to win a 2017 Corvette and $50,000! Justin Abdelkader from the Detroit Red Wings even came out to the event to be a guest celebrity judge.

This event saw approximately 300 people and was a success for the Easter Seals and Bowman Chevrolet as they work to support the Clarkston Community.
