Chevy Youth Baseball Returns

April 23, 2013
It’s been seven years and counting! Chevy Youth Baseball is a grassroots initiative that establishes a relationship with our local Chevy Dealers and the community. Baseball leagues from around the city are chosen by each Dealership to participate in unique clinics, on-field opportunities, educational clinics, and more. It is a great way for the Chevy Dealers to give back in a fun way by supporting athletics in Kansas City. This year, McCarthy has chosen two leagues to sponsor and encourage throughout their season. McCarthy-Morse Chevrolet has teamed up with the Paul Henson YMCA, and McCarthy Chevrolet has paired with Blue Valley Recreation. Each league receives baseball equipment, courtesy of Chevrolet. They also receive tickets to games, instructional clinics at the K, and opportunities to meet players and be a part of the Royals experience. Stay tuned for more pictures and stories from our kids here in Kansas City. Go Royals!

We have a winner!!!

November 20, 2012
My father always said, “It’s in the giving that you receive.” We saw that in action yesterday! Vicki Place of Shawnee, Kansas drove off the set of BetterKC Monday morning, in her brand spankin’ new  2013 Hyundai Elantra from McCarthy. All three finalists gathered in the studio, family and friends in hand, in hopes of becoming the winner! Each  woman shared their stories and NEED for a new ride. It’s such a cool deal! To simply have the opportunity to do something for someone here in Kansas City, and  possibly change their life. That’s what it’s about for us. Thank you to my friend Kelly Jones, BetterKC and the three finalists for being a part of our Thanksgiving car  giveaway!

Toyota joins McCarthy

November 5, 2012
It’s official! McCarthy has adopted a new brand to our family: Toyota. Last Tuesday, McCarthy Auto Group finalized the purchase of  longtime Sedalia car dealership, Town and Country Motors. Dad and I visited the store last Saturday. We shook hands, checked out the grounds, and focused on what needs to be done to improve the dealership. It may take a lot of work, but nonetheless, it’s an exciting new adventure for us. I asked dad, “Why this store?” His answer was simple. “It’s Toyota.” So, for all you Tundra, Corolla or Camry lovers out there … I’m here to help you!

Make strides for those you love!

My Auntie Maribeth

I remember getting the call from my mother when we found out that her sister, my auntie Maribeth, was diagnosed with breast cancer. This is a woman who draws attention when she walks in a room, has the pipes of an opera singer, and can’t help but make you giggle. Years later, she is still struggling with reoccurring lymph nodes, tests, and follow-up procedures. But, let me remind you, this is a woman who not only continues to make you giggle, but has the faith of a saint. She will never give up. And I am so proud of her.

Kansas City Chevy Dealers are joining forces with the American Cancer Society in Making Strides Against Breast Cancer. On Saturday, October 27 at 9 a.m., we will start walking from Liberty Memorial — dressed in PINK — to bring awareness and hope to those who are affected by this awful disease.

Come walk, run, jog or skip … and join the McCarthy  Team! Feel free to donate or sign up to help make strides against the fight of breast cancer.

Walk it off!

strike a pose!

We know how to have fun! 🙂 Click to join us!

Hosmer & Moustakas on the fields of OP!

June 5, 2012
This morning, Eric Hosmer and Mike Moustakas drove a “Royals” wrapped Chevy Silverado on the fields of Blue Valley Recreation. I could hear the sighs and excitement of these 10-year old boys from the bleachers. Hosmer and Moustakas spent several hours teaching, throwing, and catching with these kids; all in support of Chevy Youth Baseball. What a great partnership Chevrolet and the Royals have made!?!
