This holiday season, The Basil Family Dealerships, WKBW, Entercom, The WNY Holiday Partnership, The Marine Corps and Time Warner cable are teaming up once again to provide toys for children in the WNY Community who might otherwise not receive anything for Christmas. Operation Santa Claus has contributed over 50,000 toys to Toys for Tots since its inception in 2004.

Operation Santa Claus this year will include 4 full day toy drives at area toy stores.  Basil will be collecting toys and allowing people to enter to win vehicles on November 17th at Clayton’s Toys, December 5th at all area Toys R Us locations, December 9th at Vidlers, and December 14th at the Tree House.  As always, people can drop off toys and enter during the entire length of the promotion at any Basil Dealership as well. 

“We’re thrilled to take this year’s promotion to new levels,” explained Mike Basil, of Basil Toyota, “We want every home this season to be filled with joy and happiness and we’re committed to doing what we can to help as many families as possible.”

From November 1st until Tuesday December 16th participants can enter to win a brand new vehicle just for stopping by one of Basil’s ten locations.  They can win a new Ford Fusion , a new Chevy Malibu, a new Toyota Camry, a new Buick Verano, a new VW Passat, Cadillac in Orchard Park; or, $21,000 in Basil Bucks toward the purchase of any pre-owned vehicle from Basil.

The winner will be determined live on the air on WKBW-TV on Thursday, December 18th at Basil Resale Delaware.  Ten finalists will be given keys, one of which will start a vehicle. Whoever has the winning key can pick one of five vehicles or $21,000 in Basil Bucks toward the purchase of a pre-owned vehicle of their choice.
