What’s Good in the Neighborhood: Free car for a good cause

Local News

ENTERPRISE, Ala. (WDHN) — Sam Boswell Honda in Enterprise is making dreams come true for residents right here in the Wiregrass. They are ‘making it rain’ on several charitable causes. 

At 10 o’clock Saturday morning, some lucky person will be able to drive off the lot of Sam Boswell Honda with a brand new 2019 Honda Accord — all without paying a dime. 

That’s because this is the sixth year the Enterprise car dealership has given away a free vehicle. It’s just one of many charitable donations the business does each year.

“I get excited about it,” said O’Neal Boswell, owner of Sam Boswell Honda. “You know it’s really cool to see somebody’s face light up when they realize because the person that wins it never expects to be the one who wins it. You know you very seldom do you ever see anybody who thinks ‘yeah, I’ve got this.’ It’s always a huge surprise and ironically it’s always typically someone who really needs it.”

Since October, the dealership has performed about 1,000 test drives, and for each test drive conducted, Sam Boswell Honda has donated $5 to help Hurricane Michael victims as well as the Wounded Warrior Veterans Committee at Fort Rucker to help build a floating dock at the Wounded Warrior Retreat by the lake.

“We’re in a great community, and our community supports us so it’s very easy to want to give back,” Boswell added. “I remember hearing a long time ago when I was very young that to whom much is given, much is expected, and we have definitely been given a lot. We’ve been blessed in a lot of ways so we are very fortunate and there’s so many worthy causes. The cabin is one, the hurricane victims; there’s always someone who needs help.”
 
But in addition to all of this, Sam Boswell Honda even helped donate a new band trailer recently to Zion Chapel School since their old was in desperate need of repair.
