We are participating in some delicious fundraisers to help local charities!
The Barley House Burgerfest starts June 14th and goes until June 22nd and donates money to CHAD and Fred’s Fund. Each burger is sponsored by a local patron, and for every one of those burgers sold during the event, the sponsor donates $1 or $2 dollars to Fred’s Fund and CHaD. In addition, New Hampshire Distributors designate certain beverages on the Barley House menu and donates $1 for every one sold. Check out The Classic Patty Melt, which is the Grappone sponsored burger!
Uno’s Dough Raiser is on June 17th. When you order food that day make sure to mention The Prouty Dough Raiser and 20% of your bill will be donated to The Prouty Cancer Fund.
Everyone wins at these fundraisers! You get to eat some great food and charities will benefit from it =]

Live and Let Live Farm, Inc. is an animal shelter that rescues abused and unwanted animals, mainly horses, and provides them either a temporary or permanent safe place to interact with people. They strive to rehabilitate and or retrain animals, leading to increased confidence and self-esteem, and relationships that benefit both animals and people. When applicable, they will try to find appropriate homes for rehabilitated animals. Those animals that are considered un-adoptable will be given lifetime care at their farm.
If you know Grappone then you know we are a little different. Not only are we different from other car dealers but other companies in general. Our mission is to build lifelong relationships with our team members, guests and community by serving with integrity, kindness and respect. This statement is what we live by, and to accomplish it we created the Grappone Advisory Council. This council is made up with real people of all ages with good and bad experiences. The members meet with Grappone on a regular basis to discuss various items and ways we can constantly improve our guests experiences. As of January 1st, 2013 we rolled out our first Advisory Council unanimously approved new rewards program. Any vehicle bought at Grappone this year comes with free New Hampshire state inspections for the life of the vehicle. There’s even more great things to come, and our next meeting is June 13th at the Grappone Toyota Community Learning Center. If you would like to join the Advisory Council and make real changes contact James at Jedge@grappone.com.
