About Us

For the 2015 holiday season, The Basil Family of Dealerships is partnering with The Marine Corps, WNY Holiday Partnership, and WKBW Channel 7 to collect and distribute toys for children in the WNY community who might otherwise not receive anything for Christmas.  Since 2004, Basil’s Operation Santa Claus has contributed over 50,000 toys to Toys for Tots.

From November 27th (Black Friday) through Wednesday, December 16th participants can enter to win a brand new vehicle just for stopping by one of Basil’s eleven locations, including the newest Basil Ford of Niagara Falls.  It is encouraged that each person brings a new, unwrapped toy when entering to win the $21,000 towards a new or used vehicle from the Basil Family of Dealerships.

Operation Santa Claus this year will also include a full day Toy Drive on December 16th at area toy stores including Toys R Us locations, Vidler’s 5&10 in East Aurora, and Clayton’s Toys locations. 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.”

The winner will be determined live on the air on WKBW-TV on Friday, December 18th at Basil Volkswagen, located on South Transit road in Lockport.  Ten finalists will randomly choose key fobs; one of which will start a predetermined vehicle’s alarm. Whoever has the winning key wins the $21,000 in Basil Bucks towards a new or used vehicle.
