Olympia Auto Mall announces August food drive

By Melissa Renahan on August 20, 2012

Are you a big Major League Soccer fan, particularly when it comes to the Seattle Sounders FC? Do you want a limited edition piece of memorabilia for your collection plus a chance to get some free gas? Then get ready to make a donation for a good cause on Saturday, Aug. 18, when participating Olympia Auto Mall Dealerships will be giving away Kasey Keller bobbleheads to kick off their Ride With Kasey Keller contest.

Keller, a Lacey native and former Sounders goalkeeper who retired last October, is now a color commentator for the Seattle MLS club.

"We ask that you bring non-perishable food items for the drive and help support Thurston County Food Bank," said Alicia Nelson, executive manager for the Olympia Auto Mall Dealers Association. "At that time you can register for your collectable Kasey Keller numbered bobblehead."

The giveaway is limited to one booblehead per family and is only valid while supplies last. Participating dealerships include All Star Ford, Olympia Nissan, Olympia Chrysler Jeep, Capitol City Honda, Lincoln Mazda of Olympia, Hanson Motors, Topping Volvo and Toyota of Olympia.

Once you own a Keller bobblehead, the real contest is just beginning. Photograph or video your adventures with the bobblehead and then upload the photos or videos to the Olympia Auto Mall's Facebook page (www.facebook.com/pages/Olympia-Auto-Mall-Dealers-Association/161702763854538) to enter to win one of four $100 gas cards.

The contest will run from Aug. 18 until Sept. 30 and you must be 18 years old to enter. Entries will be judged on their creative and unique content and no inappropriate photos will be considered. Winners will be announced by Oct. 14.
