It was great to see all the kids and their families for Trunk or Treat at our 5 stores last night. The costumes were inspired and from the looks on their faces everyone had fun. We gave out thousands of treats to hundreds of visitors. Trunk or Treat has become a tradition at Apple Autos. This year we added a 5th store, Apple Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram, to our Trunk or Treat lineup. We are happy to be able to provide a fun, safe halloween destination for the community. Thanks to everyone for turning out for this event. And, thanks to all the Apple Autos team members who made it a great day for all the ghosts and goblins who visited us.

Saturday, the Apple Valley Rotary Club in cooperation with Apple Ford Lincoln Apple Valley raffled off a 2016 Ford Focus. The winner was Jody Calhoon from, you guessed it, Winner, South Dakota. Jodi has been a long time supporter of Apple Valley Rotary and this year it paid off.
The 2016 Ford Focus raffle held at Apple Ford Lincoln Apple Valley raised over $37,000.
Proceeds from the raffle fund important Rotary projects including: College scholarships for Apple Valley High School students, Christmas gifts for military families, donations to 360 Communities, the Jamaica Dental Project, providing dictionaries for every 3rd grader in district 196, and more.
Congratulations to all the Rotarians and the local businesses who sponsored this important fund raiser.
We had a great time at the 3rd Annual Jeep Show for Epilepsy. The weather was beautiful and the turnout was great. As the Twin Cities newest Jeep dealer it fun for us to get involved with the community. Thanks for the warm welcome we received from many of you. Plus, it was all for a good cause: to raise money for Epilepsy research and treatment. We’ll be back next year for sure. In the meantime check out our Jeep specials.
We’re looking forward to our first year as a sponsor of the Jeep Show for Epilepsy. Jeep fans, we hope to see you there to help support this great cause and to talk about all things Jeep. We’ll have 5 Jeep Wranglers at the show plus the ultimate tow vehicle, a Ram 1500 Rebel.
Note: due to flooding the location has changed. The address of the new location is: 1607 Hartwell Dr, Carver, MN 55315
