The Competition Auto Group’s yearly tradition of turkey giving is one that always starts off the holiday season with such excitement! Every year, the Buzzetta family gives out a turkey to each employee so that every family gets to enjoy an amazing Thanksgiving meal with their loved ones. We are so incredibly blessed to work for such a thoughtful and caring company! Let the holiday festivities begin!

Holiday Food, Toy and Clothing Drives

For the 2023 holiday season, Competition Auto Group was honored to continue to partner with various organizations around Long Island to help our local community. All of our dealerships hosted their own Food Drive with Long Island Cares, to help families facing food insecurity, and Hope House Ministries, to collect new, gently used and/or clean coats/jackets and blankets to help those in need stay warm during the cold months ahead. Across all of our dealerships, Competition Auto Group was able to humbly donate 1,248 lbs of non-perishable donations!

Competition Auto Group was also wordlessly proud to support both EJ’S PJs and Angels of Long Island for the third holiday season in a row. Thank you so much to everyone who had helped us gift the gift of the holiday season by donating food, new pajamas, new and unwrapped toys, electronics, dolls, and gift cards for children of all ages! We are so fortunate to be able to have the selfless opportunity to give back to the community that we are so proud to be a part of!

Thank you so much to everyone who has whole-heartedly gotten involved in our philanthropic fun and stopped by St. James to donate! As we accept a plethora of new toys and cozy pajamas of all sizes for young Long Islanders, we would love to emphasize how grateful we are for our Competition Auto Family!
