About the Sponsor

YOUR LOCAL CHEVROLET DEALERS, representing dealers in the Philadelphia area, Delaware and Southern New Jersey, are proud to be the sponsor of this Awards program. Their involvement with Awards of Valor is just one example of the Philly Chevy Dealers Group’s commitment to their communities, and their activities underscore the belief that there are everyday heroes all around us.  These heroes can be found in the local youth baseball and youth soccer leagues that the dealer group sponsors, or at the Hunting Park Football Field in Philadelphia, where the dealers mobilized to restore the park and create a positive place for youth in the neighborhoods of Hunting Park, Nicetown/Tioga and Logan.
