Car Show Still Shines

It was a heavy decision, back in March of this year, that the annual BOYD Father’s Day Charity Car Show would not be taking place for 2020.  COVID changed everything for everyone.  But, with challenge and chaos also comes opportunity and tends to bring out the best in people.

We are so fortunate to have such a strong connection with our community here in Kelowna & the Okanagan Valley, both on a personal / family level and our business partners too.  Through the generous support of numerous key sponsors, vendors and attending display car owners, BOYD Autobody & Glass was able to generate a donation to the Kelowna Children’s Advocacy Centre of $11,050.

This was a combination of direct cash and retained sponsorship from organizations like Lordco, PPG, Enterprise Car Rentals, Westjet, Doak Shirreff, MJ Custom T’s, Area 27 and KMS Tools to name a few.  Though we at BOYD were humble in our offering, Ginny Becker, Executive Director for the Children’s Advocacy Centre enlightened us, that in today’s current situation, every dollar carries the equivalent of $3 and goes directly to benefiting those needing to utilize the services of the CAC.

Thank you Kelowna.  Thank you to the whole Okanagan Valley and beyond, for almost 20 years of ongoing support and love.  Though somber and surreal, as we head into Father’s Day weekend without the hustle, organizing, volunteers and attendees heading for Kelowna’s City Park on Sunday.  But, remember, opportunity shines through.  Look for us to return in 2021, with some great new surprises, bigger & better displays, old favourites, families, friends – all to celebrate together.

Happy Father’s Day from all of us at BOYD Autobody & Glass

A Clear Win for 2019 Headlight Restoration

Methal & Tony, so happy to present Gail with the Headlight Restoration Benefits!

Kicking off at the beginning of October, all 5 BOYD Autobody & Glass locations began the annual Headlight Restoration & Car Wash campaign, to help everyone get ready for the dark, winter days ahead. With the added bonus of a $20 Groupon deal, so many people took advantage of this terrific (typically $65 retail) offer to improve their visibility. The real benefit however, is we hit our commitment of $2500 donated directly to Cops for Kids. The Cops for Kids program benefits families throughout the central British Columbia area, from Merrit & the Nicola Valley, through the Okanagan, into the West & East Kootenays who have children affected by sickness and injury, helping to offset the sometimes overwhelming costs. Thank you to everyone who came through each of our BOYD locations to help with this tremendous cause. So many even donated a little extra to ensure the Cops for Kids continue to get the help they need.


Boyd “gives a puck” about community!

June 27, 2019 (Kelowna) – Boyd Autobody and Glass presented a cheque to the United Way team for $10,000 as their sponsorship contribution to the first annual “Average Players Who Give a Puck” charity hockey tournament held this spring. Boyd Autobody, long-time supporters of community initiatives, ran a marketing campaign in April and May with $50 from windshield replacements & $20 from chip repairs going to the event and ultimately to United Way Southern Interior BC.
The final tally for the 2 day event was $15,600! The fundraiser which was the brainchild of Rick Maddison of Tempest Media included a draft night & auction, courtesy of Freddy’s Brew Pub, an early morning golf tournament and then an intense afternoon of 3 on 3 hockey games at the Ultimate Hockey Centre.
