Lakeland: Do you have your Jeepin’ with Judd tickets yet?

Jeepin’ with Judd may be right around the corner, but there’s still time for you to get your tickets for the Cheep Jeep! The annual event will start on February 22nd, and the drawing for the Cheep Jeep will be held at the Jeepin’ with Judd event on February 24th. You do not have to be present or registered for the rest of Jeepin’ with Judd to win.

Kelley Buick GMC is very proud to have once again donated the Jeep for the Cheep Jeep raffle. We can’t wait to see who ends up taking home this red, two door 2011 Jeep Wrangler JK Sport.

All four Polk County Kelley locations have Cheep Jeep tickets, and you can also get them online. Tickets are only $20.00, and there’s no limit on how many you can buy!

The proceeds from all donations (after expenses) will go to the Polk Sheriff’s Charities, Inc. which does amazing work in our community.

Formed in 2006, Polk Sheriff’s Charities, Inc. has provided monetary support to their members who have experienced tragic events. The charity also supports other community endeavors, such as buying Christmas presents for children in need in Polk County communities and supporting organizations that aid domestic violence victims.

The 501(c)(3) organization also supports the agency’s K-9 unit and the memorial in front of the CSO Sheriff’s Operation Center in Winter Haven. Additionally, it provides scholarships to eligible high school seniors. Polk Sheriff’s Charities, Inc. was formed in 2006 after Deputy Matt Williams and his K-9 partner DiOGi were killed in the line of duty.

Jeepin’ with Judd began in 2014, and is a family-friendly Jeep-only event. It’s guaranteed to be a blast whether you win the Cheep Jeep or not. Even better, you can still go even if you don’t have a Jeep–spectators are free and more than welcome! Bounce houses will be provided for the kids, and vendors will be on site selling food and other merchandise.

The great folks behind the Polk County Youth Fair have been supporting Polk Country agriculture youth since 1944, when building planning began. It has no commercial vendors, and instead showcases the hard work of local F.F.A., F.H.A., and 4-H members, and other high school leaders. The Polk County Youth Fair has been one of the largest youth fairs in the entire Southeast since 1948.

The 2019 Polk County Youth Fair will start on January 26th and run through February 1st. Raffle tickets are only $20, and the drawing will take place on February 1, 2019 at 6:50 p.m. live at Kelley Buick GMC in Bartow. The winner will be announced on 97.5 WPCV.

You can purchase raffle tickets by visiting any Kelley location in Polk County (Kelley Buick GMC in Bartow, Kelley Used Truck Supercenter in Lakeland, Kelley’s Used Cars in Auburndale, and Kelley of Winter Haven). You can also call (863) 534-1561 and buy a ticket over the phone!

We only have a limited number of tickets available, and they are going fast, so give us a call today to buy your ticket!


Buy A Used Truck And Raise Money for Breast Cancer Research

Since 2014, Kelley Lakeland Used Truck Superstore has donated a percentage of our October proceeds to support breast cancer research. Last year, we donated more than $4,000 to the American Cancer Society, all thanks to every person who came in to buy a used truck from us in the month of October.

With one in eight women in the United States is diagnosed with breast cancer in her lifetime, breast cancer is the most commonly diagnosed form of cancer in women. Each year, over a quarter million women are diagnosed with breast cancer, and men aren’t immune either! While the number diagnosed is far less, almost 2,500 men are still diagnosed with breast cancer each year.

While death rates from breast cancer have been slowly declining since around 1990, more than 40,000 people still die from breast cancer each year. It doesn’t have to be that way! With studies currently going on to learn more about the causes of breast cancer, and to find better forms of both diagnosis and treatment, there is hope that we can make death from breast cancer a thing of the past.

When you come in to buy this October, you don’t have to do anything special to make sure your purchase helps support breast cancer research—we’re donating a percentage of all proceeds, no matter what.  And with access to a hundred trucks on this lot—and hundreds of other vehicles through our family of dealerships—you can find the best selection of trucks at the best value, all while helping raise money for a good cause.

If you want buy a used truck to help us raise money for breast cancer research this October, check out our selection of used trucks, and then give us a call at (877) 535-5394 to set up your appointment today!

Test Your Skills For a Chance to Win a Custom 2018 Ford F-150!

This fall, we’re teaming up with All Saints Academy to give their fans a chance to win a truck! And we don’t mean we’ll customize a truck you already own—we mean we’re giving fans a shot to win a custom 2018 Ford F-150 Crew Cab 4×4.

This truck is lifted, and it’s got custom tires and wheels, and Katzin leather, and it could be yours … if you’re an All Saints fan. Starting on 8/24 and ending 10/19, we’re hosting a raffle to give away a cooler at each home game (your game ticket is your raffle ticket!).

You’ll have 5 chances to win a cooler, and those coolers come with a chance to take home a lifted Ford truck at half-time during their rivalry game against Santa Fe on 10/19! You must be present at the 10/19 game to take your chance (and please read the full rules here), and hopefully you’ll be lucky enough to take home your very own lifted F-150!

Check back to see which custom truck you can win!

All Saints won their second consecutive Sunshine State Athletic Conference Football Championship last season, and we’re more than happy to make their rivalry game even more exciting than it was already going to be.

Want to go to a game? Home games start at 7:00 p.m. at All Saints Academy (map), and tickets are available at the gate. Don’t forget to keep an eye out for Kelley Lakeland. We’ll have custom trucks on display, and we’ll be making an entrance at half-time to give away some goodies, including a cooler that comes with a chance to win a 2018 Ford F-150!

You’ll also want to keep an eye on this blog—because we’ll be giving you a look at the truck that’s up for grabs in the weeks to come!
