Tour De Livingston Kickoff Ride 2017

The Tour De Livingston Kick-off Ride was a huge success last month! There was a great turn-out and perfect weather for the free ride! Brighton Ford can't wait for the real deal on October 8th...this year is going to be the best yet!

The 10th Annual Howell Rotary Club’s Tour de Livingston provides an opportunity for our riders to enjoy outstanding fall colors during the peak color season in southeast Michigan. This fully supported ride includes hospitality tents, a full breakfast, snacks and, when your ride is over, a hearty meal prepared by the chef at Mt. Brighton. The event has grown each year and now includes more than 750 riders participating. All proceeds from this event benefit the Livingston County United Way basic need programs addressing hunger, homelessness, children, and unemployment issues. Since its start in 2008, the Tour de Livingston has raised well over $250,000 to address the community’s most critical needs!

Brighton Ford Sponsors Taste of Brighton 2017

Brighton Ford was proud to sponsor yet another amazing year of A Taste of Brighton in downtown Brighton, Michigan this past weekend!  The streets were filled for the annual street festival that brings local shops, restaurants and entertainment to Downtown Brighton for all to enjoy.  The event, which evolved five years ago to enhance the traditional retail sidewalk sales event, offered food selections from local restaurants, as well as shopping, a rock wall, a bounce house and more entertainment for children and adults.  The weather was perfect and we were able to give away a Family Fun Game Basket ($140 value) to one lucky winner!  We can’t wait for next year’s event to connect with everyone in Downtown Brighton again!

My name is Prudence. I am a very loving, 2 year old white with gray short hair (spayed) female with beautiful soft green eyes.
