Landon Peacock Named Open Your Heart Chair of the Southern Coast Heart Ball

Landon Peacock Named Open Your Heart Chair of the Southern Coast Heart Ball
The American Heart Association Celebrates 21st Annual Heart Ball

(JASPER CO.) The American Heart Association is proud to announce Landon Peacock will be the Open Your Heart Chair of the 21st annual Heart Ball of the Southern Coast. The Heart Ball is to be held on Saturday, February 3, 2018, at the Westin Hilton Head Island Resort & Spa.

In his role as Chair, Landon will work diligently to raise funds to fight cardiovascular disease and stroke in our community. This cause is very special to Landon because he experienced a traumatic cardiac event less than a decade ago. Seven years ago on Christmas morning, he was rushed to the hospital where a physician diagnosed him with a 90 percent blockage in his LAD artery. This blockage was later discovered to be caused by a blood clot that was formed through an autoimmune disease called Anti-Phospholipid Syndrome.

Although Landon has fully recovered, he wants to raise awareness that people in our community are at risk of developing heart issues and need the American Heart Association’s help. “The Open Your Heart campaign brings awareness and raises money for the fight against the nation’s No. 1 and No. 4 killers — heart disease and stroke. Any donation received will be used for the fight against such diseases. As someone who has experienced heart issues, I know firsthand that the crucial work done by the American Heart Association can have an impact toward saving lives and improving our community’s health. Together, we can help save the lives of many,” said Landon.

To find out how to make an Open Your Heart donation or to purchase tickets for next year’s Heart Ball, please contact Carla Raines at 843-540-6338, or visit our website at southerncoastheartball.heart.org.

The first 100 people to arrive at SubieStock with a pet supply or monetary donation for PAL will receive a free tie-dyed T shirt. The party is “BYOD” – Bring Your Dog – Guests are invited to bring their own dogs to the party, as Subaru of Hilton Head is a dog-friendly dealership.

“Subaru Loves Pets is more than a motto,” explains Jill Jauch, marketing manager at Peacock Automotive, which owns Subaru of Hilton Head. “Helping homeless animals really hits home with all of us here at Subaru of Hilton Head, as many of us have rescue pets of our own.

Peacock Automotive Rebrands New River Auto Mall to Peacock Auto Mall in Celebration of 15th Anniversary

The former New River Auto Mall, established in 2002, now will be doing business as “Peacock Auto Mall.”

“We were excited to celebrate our fifteenth anniversary this year and wanted to celebrate in a very special way,” said Warner Peacock, president and CEO of Peacock Automotive. “The rebranding of Peacock Auto Mall now associates the family name with the property along with showing the connections to our other dealerships.”

As part of the changeover, the company has changed the look associated with the brand, Peacock said.

“We softened up the logo and made some color modifications that better represent the current identity of our company,” he said. “We also added a silhouette of a car to evoke the sense of excitement you feel when test driving the inventory at our dealerships.”

Peacock Auto Mall covers 45 acres on U.S. 278, five miles east of Interstate 95 at Exit 8 in South Carolina. It employs approximately 330 people and features 13 brands, including Audi, Chrysler, Dodge, Fiat, Genesis, Hyundai, Jaguar, Jeep, Land Rover, Porsche, Ram, Subaru and Volkswagen.

Peacock Automotive Breaks Ground on Audi Dealership

Peacock Automotive Breaks Ground on Audi Dealership

(JASPER COUNTY, S.C.) Peacock Automotive has broken ground on its new 30,000-square-foot Audi dealership at the New River Auto Mall on U.S. 278.

Construction on the building will begin immediately and is expected to be completed in the spring of 2018.

The architecture firm contracted for this project was Hansen Architects, and Thompson-Turner is the contracted construction firm. Many local elected officials and organizations attended the event, which was held on Tuesday, Aug. 22, at the site of the new building.

The new dealership will be located two blocks down the street from the current Audi Hilton Head facility that is paired with Hilton Head Volkswagen. When it’s ready, Audi will move into the new building and the Volkswagen outlet will grow to occupy the vacated space. That facility then will be renovated according to current VW design standards.

“This expansion is made possible by the overwhelming demand for Audi and VW brands in our market,” said Warner Peacock, president and CEO of Peacock Automotive. “With this new facility, we are expecting to bring new inventory, new jobs and economic growth to one of the Southeast’s largest auto dealers in the South Carolina Lowcountry.”

The new Audi dealership will feature a state-of-the-art repair center along with convenient features such as a free coffee, beverage and snack bar. Audi Hilton Head will also be a dedicated Audi sport facility, which will expand its inventory of high-performance sport models and offer more sport factory parts and accessories.

“Our auto mall is a hub of quality vehicle brands at competitive prices,” said Peacock, “and this expansion puts every option and every service right at the fingertips of our valued customers.”
