Community Events with Sliman's Sales & Service

Sharing Clothes

For the 5th year, Sliman's Sales & Service has been an integral part of Sharing Clothes, a community clothing drive for the needy locally and abroad. We provide vehicles for transporting the clothes and also serve as an extra storage and drop-off area where people can donate their gently used clothing to the less fortunate. This year, over 700 garbage bags full of clothing were collected and distributed to 15 local organizations and El Salvador!


Jeep Wrangler Give-Away

Sliman's Sales & Service is stepping up to help the Lorain County Blue Foundation, a non-profit for law enforcement who may be going through a difficult time. We will be partnering with LCBF for a Jeep Wrangler Raffle. For $50, you can have a chance to win a 2016 Jeep Wrangler Sport Edition 24 B Package! Tickets can be purchased online at the Lorain County Blue Foundation website or at Sliman's Sales & Service in Amherst. Only 1,000 tickets are being sold, so the changes of winning are pretty good! The winner of the raffle will be announced at the 7th Annual Pete Soto Chili Cook-Off. All proceeds from the raffle go directly to the Lorain County Blue Foundation. 


Partnership with Amherst Track and Field

We are proud to sponsor the incredibly successful Amherst Track and Field team. Both the boys' and girls' track teams won the Lorain County Championships while breaking 4 county records this year. Sliman's Sales & Service brings down Jeep and the prize wheel to Comet Relays, an annual event that brings in 53 different schools to compete in relay competitions. This spring marked the 61st Comet Relays!

Sliman's Sales & Service Diamond Softball Field

In 2000, Paul Sliman decided to start a softball organization. There was only one problem: there were no fields available for girls to play on. After searching and searching, he decided to take matters into his own hands. Paul and a small group of men and women built Sliman's Diamond on the dealership property. It quickly became the nicest softball field in Lorain County. Sliman's Diamond was home to the Amherst Comets Varsity Softball team, and also hosted the District and Regional tournament games. Due to expansion of inventory and the dealership itself, Sliman's Diamond was taken down in 2012 and all of the equipment was donated to different organizations. But the story of Sliman's Diamond doesn't end there.

Amherst Softball head coach Lacey Reichert, who coached for Sliman's Dodge Girls, and Paul Sliman decided to bring back Sliman's Diamond on the school property. In partnership with the Amherst School District, Sliman's Diamond is back. Paul also pitched in the sponsor the Amherst Baseball field as well, creating "Sliman's Diamonds" on Washington Ave.

 

Rockin' MS

Sliman's Sales & Service is excited to sponsor Rockin' MS on June 18, 2016 at the Amherst Eagles. Rockin' MS is a fundraiser for the MS Socity and Camp Connect to help individuals and families effected by Multiple Sclerosis. The event will have two bands: Eddie and the Edsels and Disco Inferno. There will be three food trucks at the event along with tons of raffle items. Tickets for this event can be purchased on the Rockin' MS website. 

Jeep Jam

The Jeep Jam is one of our favorite days of the year! We host all of the Amherst sports teams and clubs at the dealership to find out who can fit the most students into a Jeep Grand Cherokee. Words can't express the craziness and competitiveness of this event! We have three different brackets, boys' teams, girls' teams, and co-ed teams. There is a first and second place winner for each bracket as well as additional awards such as "Most Spirited Team." Check out the video of this year's Jeep Jam here!  


October Breast Cancer Awareness - Power 4 Pink

Every October, we support a local organization dedicated to helping people in our area with their battle with breast cancer. For every vehicle we sell in October, we donate $50 to Power 4 Pink. Power 4 Pink's mission is to "form a bond between residents of Lorain County and health care to ensure that residents receive the necessary testing and care to enjoy a healthy life." Help us Knock Out Cancer!
