Test Drive Evansville Highlights New Charity Every Week

Test Drive Evansville - we donate to great area charities like It Takes A Village!

Here at Evansville Kia, we take immense pride in offering exceptional services and high-quality vehicles. But we know that even a great business is nothing without the support of the people around them. That’s why we love giving back to a community that’s done so much for us.

Recently, we had the wonderful opportunity to help raise money for It Takes a Village Canine Rescue, a hard-working, non-profit, no-kill shelter that has improved the lives of thousands of homeless dogs by finding them new, loving homes. It was an honor to help such a caring and productive organization right here in Evansville!

Over Labor Day weekend, we had a lot of fun hosting the people and puppies of It Takes a Village for a fundraising event that resulted in $2,100 for It Takes A Village to go toward a new vehicle for the shelter. A lot of great people came out, had a blast playing with the puppies, and donated to this organization making a difference in our community.

But we’re not done yet! Visit our Test Drive Evansville Facebook page to learn about a new charity every week and join Evansville Kia in supporting those who make Evansville such an amazing place to work and play!

Summer Road Trip
Road Trip Buddy

It’s hard to believe or accept, but summer is nearly drawing to a close, which means you’ve got one last chance for a summer road trip. Living here in Evansville gives us plenty of unique opportunities for short road trips, placing us in close proximity to things not just here in Indiana but also in Kentucky and in Illinois, as well as Ohio and Tennessee.

Here are just a few summer road trip ideas, courtesy of us at Evansville Kia:

Nashville, Tennessee

 Just a two-and-a-half-hour drive from Evansville, Nashville (also known as Music City) is the perfect place to get some great drinks and listen to music or explore some culture, like at the Parthenon. Nashville is also situated next to Percy Priest Lake if you want to spend your weekend hiking, kayaking, and swimming.

Mammoth Cave

Kentucky’s Mammoth Cave is just over two hours from Evansville and offers a unique chance to explore underground Kentucky up close and personal. While around the cave, you can enjoy a number of unique experiences, such as golf, horseback riding, and camping.

Holiday World, Kings Island & Cedar Point

 If you like amusement parks, you’re in a good spot. It’s just an hour drive to Holiday World, a three-and-a-half-hour drive to Kings Island, and a seven-hour drive to Cedar Point. While the last drive sounds outrageously long, Cedar Point is recognized as one of the world’s best amusement parks and is well worth the trip.

Chicago, Illinois

Take a five-hour trip up to the Windy City to explore fine dining, shopping, museums, and more. If you’re lucky, you might even be able to catch the Cubs hot off their winning streak at Wrigley Field.
