Key Hyundai Pays for A’s in Milford

Platt Tech, Foran & Law High School students can earn big bucks from Key Hyundai of Milford!

Didja hear? Key Hyundai is getting quite popular in high school!

Key Hyundai is launching Pays for A’s, rewarding Milford high school students from Platt, Foran and Law with cold, hard, gift cards for each academic A received on their report card.

That’s right. $$ for good grades for Key Hyundai of Milford.

We’re just another automotive sponsor supporting our local schools; but this time we’re putting our money where the hard work is: in the students’ grades.

There’s much controversy over paying for grades, but this is strictly a business decision, the brainstorm of my fabulouso General Sales Manager Sal Sinardi. When asked to purchase an advertisement in Milford’s Foran High School’s athletic program, he didn’t opt for the same ol’, same ol’.

Sal wanted something different. Something to excite the kids, get the parents into the dealership, and create a little fanfare. And Key Hyundai Pays for A’s was born.

Foran, Law and Platt Tech students get MORE for good grades from Key Hyundai of Milford

We’re forking over a $10 Westfield CT Post Mall gift cards for each A. But there’s a glitch: the gift cards only come in $20 denominations.

Key Hyundai Rounds UP to bring Milford High School students MORE for their hard work!

So one A will net a student a $20 gift card. Two A’s: same. Three A’s = $40 in gift cards. Fuzzy math, but the kids end up winning!

Platt Tech, Joseph A. Foran High, and Jonathan Law High School students are all eligible to participate. They need only earn the A’s, then bring in their report card, student ID, and a parent to receive payment.

What’s in it for us?

It’s simple really. We get high achieving students with their parents walking through our showroom. Hopefully eyeballing some cars, perhaps taking a test drive. Perhaps not – but now Key Hyundai is on their radar, and will see with their own eyes what we have to offer.

It’s a pilot program. We’re learning as we go too. If all goes well, we’ll roll out to Manchester/Vernon as well. But for now, Milford students are the guinea pigs. Get to work kids, study hard, and come on in to collect!

Key Hyundai Proud Supporter of H’Art of Art in West Hartford, Connecticut

H'Art of Art & Connecticut Children's Medical Center & Key Hyundai

H'Art of Art Saturday, October 15

This Saturday, October 15, is really one of my all time favorite events – EV-AH! Key Hyundai jumped at the chance to support this phenomenal cause: supporting a grassroots effort, a world-class children’s hospital, and a hometown event.

The talented Olivia Hanzel, owner and artist extraordinaire at Bumblebug Art is sponsoring H’Art of Art, a day of fun, art, and compassion right in West Hartford.

H’art of Art is Saturday, October 15, rain or shine, and everyone at Key Hyundai has fingers crossed for lots of sunshine!

It’s a day of creativity for you and your kids; where you can have a fabulous day right in downtown West Hartford, and support a great cause: Connecticut Children’s Foundation, dedicated to improving the health of children through family-centered care, research, education and advocacy.

Connecticut Children’s Medical Center is filled with amazing physicians, nurses, and health care providers and support that selflessly give to CT children, their families, and caregivers.

And H’Art of Art is a way to celebrate the creativity alive in all children.

Much thanks to my hometown of West Hartford, and my good friend Olivia, for supporting this all-time favorite hospital of mine.

Come on down to Bumblebug Art, 970 Farmington Avenue, West Hartford Center, rain or shine this Saturday. Together, we can make a little art, raise awareness, create masterpieces, and make a little magic.
