Ford Takes its Show on the Road in Ford Experience Tour

FETWe have some local Ford fans who like being around their favorite auto brand so much they consider the dealership a kind of hangout.  We understand, though, that not all Ford fans want to spend time in a sales environment when they’re not planning on buying in the immediate future.  All the more reason to check out the Ford Experience Tour now appearing at fairs and festivals across the country.  Ford describes the tour as a “caravan” of vehicles, games, social media opportunities, and free stuff.  The tour started in early August and runs through mid-November.  Here are the remaining dates and locations:

  • 8/23 – 8/24: Festival of Nations, St. Louis, MO
  • 8/29 – 9/1: Taste of Colorado, Denver, CO
  • 9/20 – 9/21: Bellmore Street Festival, Bellmore, NY
  • 9/19 – 9/21: Charlotte Festival In The Park, Charlotte, NC
  • 9/26 – 9/28: Neptune Festival Boardwalk Weekend, Virginia Beach, VA
  • 10/11 – 10/12: Bayou City Art Festival Downtown, Bayou City, TX
  • 10/18 – 10/19: Half Moon Bay Pumpkin & Art Fest, Half Moon Bay, CA
  • 11/14 – 11/16: Ford Championship Weekend, Homestead, FL

Butler Hyundai’s August 2014 Open House Biggest Yet!

IMG_7339Huge thanks to everyone who joined us last night for our biggest and best Butler Hyundai Open House yet! We started early, stayed late, and had nothing but fun in between! If we missed you stay tuned for information about the grand opening of the new showroom coming up next month. In the meantime, enjoy these snapshots from last night.

You’re Invited to FurnARTure!

If you don’t already have plans for Sunday, September 7th we’d like to invite you to one of the most unique events around.  It’s FurnARTure, the signature event to benefit The Studio at Living Opportunities. The afternoon fete involves the auctioning of dozens of masterpieces, everything from canvases to photography, jewelry to sculpture, to furniture that’s been turned into gorgeous, functional art.  The proceeds go to support The Studio which is part of Living Opportunities, a non-profit organization that supports those with developmental disabilities in living independently and meeting their employment potential (see video above).

Linda Butler is excited to be on the art selection committee for this year’s event.  Other employees are pitching in, too, doing everything from assisting the planning committee to volunteering to voice the radio and television advertisements, to gathering friends and family to attend the party with them.  Oh, and we’re helping sell tickets for the amazing   “Gallery of Travel” raffle (see details below)!

There will be music, food, art, artists, wine, good company, and the warm feeling that comes with knowing you’re making someone’s world better just by being there.  For more information or to purchase tickets visit





New and Old Friends at Butler Kia Open House

Butler owner, Linda Butler, and friend

We at Butler Auto always enjoy our customer appreciation events because they give us a chance to get to know you better. The more we know you the more we can meet and exceed your expectations which makes for a more fulfilling business relationship for everyone involved. Sometimes, though, a friendship emerges, too. That possibility is what makes our Open Houses so much fun! Our event at Butler Kia last night was much more like a gathering of buddies than a business affair. We caught up with old friends, made some new ones, and even got some spontaneous car repairs taken care of! Thanks to all who attended!
