Delaware Cadillac Supports Nemours/Alfred I. DuPont Hospital for Children's 2020 Help Our Kids Radiothon

Earlier in 2020, we were very much looking forward to the 15th annual "A Night at Nemours" to repeat our transportation of guests as we have done the last two years during the Gala Fund Raising Event. Unfortunately, we had to participate virtually in 2020. But we were just as happy to contribute to Nemours/Alfred I. DuPont Hospital for Children's Help Our Kids Radiothon in October of 2020. Delaware Cadillac's $10,000 donation went toward the combined total raised of $227,000. These funds will be used toward vital resources for patients and families through child life, creative arts therapy, school programs, pastoral care, and palliative care. Delaware Cadillac is proud to support our local community and Nemours/Alfred I. DuPont Hospital for Children.

Kia of Wilmington & AutoTeam Delaware's Delaware Subaru breaks records with Pet Adoption Event!

In early October 2020, in participation with Subaru Loves Pets Month, Kia of Wilmington & AutoTeam Delaware's Delaware Subaru hosted an outdoor Pet Adoption event along with the Brandywine Valley SPCA.  In partnership with Subaru of America, Delaware Subaru was able to secure a Grant valued at $5,000 for the Brandywine Valley SPCA.  The Brandywine Valley SPCA, in turn, opted to put this grant toward the Pet Adoption Event so that ALL Adoption fees were waived!  Several days prior to the event, we posted the event to our Facebook Page, #DelawareSubaru, and received such an overwhelming response (225 people responded as "attending," with 1,200 additional responses of "interested") that the day prior to the event, Delaware Subaru committed an Additional $3,100 toward Adoption Fees! The day of the event turned the Facebook response to a reality with over 200 people lined up at the dealership for the 9 am Adoption Event, with those at the front of the line indicating that they arrived prior to 6:30 am!!!  (We appreciate everyone wearing a mask.) The Brandywine Valley SPCA was able to process 36 total adoptions, 6 cats and 30 dogs - including a senior German Shepard with poor vision!  In addition, realizing that there would not be enough Pets for all of the people in line, Delaware Subaru provided Additional coupons good toward future Adoption fees to the many attendees who were unable to adopt a pet during the event. The event would not have been possible without the gracious volunteers of the Brandywine Valley SPCA. We thank all who attended, and we wish all new pet owners the best with their new furry friends!

Kia of Wilmington & AutoTeam Delaware Supports the United Way of Delaware

Year 8! This year, as with the last eight (yes, 8!!!!) years, United Way of Delaware campaign donors were entered into an annual drawing to win their choice of a 2020 Kia Forte GT-Line Sedan Lease OR $8,500 in cash - the equivalent to the total lease term payments. This year's winner, David Spritzer, donated to the United Way of Delaware through the workplace campaign his employer, DuPont, has in place. David opted to go with the $8,500 cash payout, and just like the 2019 winner, elected to contribute a portion of those winnings BACK to the United Way of Delaware as additional donation! Congratulations to David, and thank you for your contributions!

As always, all the donations from the raffle benefit the United Way's Community Impact Fund that addresses early childhood reading, education, income, and health. Kia of Wilmington is proud to support our local community, and we are proud to partner with the United Way of Delaware!

Kia of Wilmington & AutoTeam Delaware Supports the United Way of Delaware

2019 marks the 7th year in a row that our Kia of Wilmington store has partnered with the United Way of Delaware in their fund raising campaigns to select a winner of a New vehicle. For the last 7 years, United Way campaign donors have been entered into the annual drawing to win either a brand new vehicle or cash by contributing to the United Way's annual fund raising Campaigns. This incentive for donors to contribute has helped the United Way of Delaware raise hundreds of thousands of dollars for charitable use. In 2019, the winner of the drawing elected to go with the cash offering and gave back a portion of the proceeds to the United Way of Delaware! All the donations from the raffle benefit United Way's Community Impact Fund that addresses early childhood reading, education, income, and health. We are proud to continue to partner with and support the United Way of Delaware.

Kia of Wilmington's AutoTeam Delaware Supports the Nemours Fund for Children's Health

In 2019 for the second year in a row, Kia of Wilmington's AutoTeam Delaware, along with financial support from the Tri-State Philadelphia Cadillac Dealers, supported the Nemours/Alfred I. DuPont Hospital for Children's 14th Annual "A Night at Nemours" in June of 2019. We were able to assist with the transportation of over 800 guests from the parking area to the event area - which allowed guests to interact with the Cadillac product. Our $10,000 contribution as a Gold Sponsor supports pediatric cardiac research this year. Proceeds went towards an endowment, which provides perpetual funding to improve clinical care and research to help families who face medical issues far into the future. The world-class clinical teams will incorporate cutting-edge research and treatment protocols to give every child the best chance at happiness and success. To learn more, please visit We are proud to support Nemours, and look forward to future years of support!

AutoTeam Delaware's Delaware Subaru Supports Christiana Care Health Organization

Our AutoTeam Delaware Subaru brand store, Delaware Subaru, presented an annual gift of $13,645 to ChristianaCare in Summer of 2020 to support the special needs of babies in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) and their parents. Over the past five years, Delaware Subaru has given Christiana Care more than $65,000 as part of our effort to "Share the Love," which designates funds from every Subaru sold between November and January to select nonprofits. "ChristianaCare provides world-class care to the youngest, most fragile patients," said Michael Uffner, president at Delaware Subaru and Auto Team Delaware. "Delaware Subaru is honored to support the work they do and give back to our neighbors and friends in the community." ChristianaCare opened its new Center for Women's & Children's Health at Christiana Hospital in April. One of the most significant features of the new Center is a state-of-the-art NICU, featuring 76 private rooms with sleep-in space for families. ChristianaCare has one of the only hospitals in the United States to provide "couplet care" in the NICU, keeping the mother and baby together even if they both require medical care. "When ChristianaCare announced plans in 2015 to transform care for women and infants in the greater Delaware region through a new Center for Women's & Children's Health, no one imagined that the new facility would be opening in the midst of a pandemic," said David Paul, M.D., chair of Pediatrics (pictured). "Generous financial and moral support from partners like Delaware Subaru, especially during this time, gives us strength and hope for what's ahead. We truly are grateful for their ongoing support."
