Briggs Auto Group Thanks Military & First Responders KS

Briggs Hero Appreciation WeekTwo little words, “thank you”, don’t seem like enough when it comes to telling our military and 1st responders how much we appreciate their dedication to people across our nation. All of us from the Briggs Auto group, as a collective whole, want to demonstrate our gratitude by giving away $50 Dinner Cards to all of these American Heroes.

A thank you doesn’t come with strings attached, so all you have to do is just stop in at one of our dealerships listed below and say hello. Simple enough because all of you already do enough to protect and serve our friends and families. The following Briggs dealerships across Kansas: Nissan (Manhattan), Buick GMC, Dodge, KIA, Subaru (Topeka), and Briggs Super Center are doing this as a collaborative effort  with Thanks-A-Bunch for Keeping Us Safe, a “non-profit 501c3 charity.” Read the rest of this entry »
