Who will WIN A CAR? Find out at Tyler Automotive on Feb. 19!

Seven lucky finalists are set to compete in the United Way of Southwest Michigan Car Challenge with Tyler Automotive on Tuesday, February 19.


To help incentivize last year’s campaign, United Way of Southwest Michigan partnered with Tyler Automotive to provide a Car Challenge. Donors who gave $156 (or $3 per week) for a year were automatically entered into a drawing to be eligible to win a two-year lease on a sub-compact vehicle from Tyler Automotive. The finalist names were drawn and announced on February 7 on a Facebook Livestream.


One of those seven finalists will win at Tyler Automotive (4356 Red Arrow Highway, Stevensville) on Tuesday, February 19 from 5-6:30 p.m. The finalists will each be given a random key; one of those keys will start the car. The public is invited to attend.


“With this compelling incentive to contribute at least $3 a week, Tyler helps us create some exciting anticipation in the community,” said Anna Murphy, president of United Way of Southwest Michigan. “It’s a fun event, but most important, Tyler’s support of United Way leads to significant impact.”


A gift of $3 a week provides:


  • 34 meals for someone dealing with food insecurity

  • 2 months of support to help a young child learn to read

  • 1 free book for a child every month for 5 years

  • School supplies for 8 kids to start the school year

  • Support for 2 individuals to address their mental health

  • 1 year of a physical activity/nutrition program for a school-age youth


United Way of Southwest Michigan is thankful to all who donated last year for helping to make the campaign a big success and to Tyler Automotive for its generous support.
