The Jim Click Automotive Team Charity Of Choice Program

Nick Scalpone at Jim Click Ford is prepared to offer a payment of $250 as a referral contribution to the Community Food Bank when any affiliated member or their family and friends purchase a new or used vehicle through this program. This program is only offered through representatives Nick Scalpone at 520. 909. 6369 and John Numetko by prior appointment. In order for your referral contribution to be paid, notice of program participation must be given prior to any vehicle sale.

Other vehicle purchase programs and incentives such as lifetime Oil and Filter maintenance on used cars will still be offered. All factory incentives will be fully passed on. Trades will be fairly assessed as usual. There is no current time limit to this program; however, we reserve the right to cancel this program at any time. Some restrictions may apply. The Jim Click Ford representative  Nick Scalpone can offer new and used vehicles from many dealerships including  Ford-Lincoln-Mercury, Chrysler-Jeep, Dodge, Nissan, Mazda, Hyundai, Kia and Mitsubishi.

We all eventually need to purchase a vehicle at some time or at least know someone who does. Why not get red carpet treatment in the purchasing process and get $250 contributed to your favorite non-profit organization at the same time!

Additional information and forms are available on the Jim Click Automotive Business Preferred Network web site http://www.jimclickbpn.com/ or call  Nick or John.
