Thompson Pledges to Drive Away the Cold
Together, we are warming hearts.
The Thompson Organization is proud to participate in the 2014 Driving Away the Cold effort! As a participating dealer in this program, we have agreed to donate a brand new winter coat to a local child in need each time a vehicle is sold at our store this month. Driving Away the Cold is a philanthropic program started in January of 2008 by the Auto Dealers CARing for Kids Foundation, of which we are a member. The program has one simple but very important mission-to provide new winter coats to underprivileged children living in the five-county region of Philadelphia.
Since 2008, the Foundation, along with its Dealer Members, has distributed nearly 80,000 new coats to area children who need them the most. This year, the program hopes to distribute its 100,000th coat collectively. If you would like to learn more about the Auto Dealers CARing for Kids Foundation and the difference we are making in our communities, please visit www.caringforkids.com. Spread the Warmth. Do a good deed today.
TWO BIG EVENTS | ONE HUGE WEEKEND September 13th & 14th
Together, the Thompson Bucks County Classic and the Doylestown Arts Festival will draw over 30,000 spectators to the bustling streets of downtown Doylestown throughout the weekend. There will be something for everyone - a wide variety of artisans and crafters, music and food, as well as children's bike races and professional cycling events for biking enthusiasts. Plan your weekend accordingly- with so much to see and do, you won't want to miss a thing!
3rd Annual Thompson Bucks County Classic
Saturday morning the competition starts with the Doylestown to New Hope Road Race. This is the true European road race experience for spectators. From the start in Doylestown to the action on the Carversville Circuit and the new finish in New Hope, this stunningly beautiful race is fast becoming a world classic.
This year celebrates the 12th annual Thompson Criterium of Doylestown, a spectacular race that encircles the Arts Festival to the cheers of thousands of spectators. The day kicks off at 8:30am with the Cyclosportif 100K, a recreational ride throughout the spectacular terrain of Upper Bucks County. It may be "recreational," but this 62-mile course is designed for serious cyclists looking for a challenge and to share in a pro-racing atmosphere.
Our first-ever Professional Women's race begins at 10:30am followed at 12pm by the ever-popular children's races where kids get the thrill of a lifetime by sprinting up to the same finish line as the pros.
Then the Grand Finale of the weekend....the Thompson Criterium of Doylestown starting at 1pm. This will be true, professional cycling at its very best, don't miss it.
23rd Annual Doylestown Arts Festival 10am-5pm
Hosted by Doylestown Business and Community Alliance and sponsored by The Thompson Organization, the festival closes down the streets, transforming the heart of Doylestown into this unique celebration of art, music, food and community.
