Lucky the rain from Hurricane Florence held off, and we had a great day for golf! Everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves on the course. Our morning round of golfers were competing for the opportunity to win a trip to Pebble Beach to play in their tournament, and the women were competing for the chance to win a trip to Boars Head Resort in Charlottesville.
The course at Independence had 4 opportunities for hole-in-one with the prize being a paid for 2 year lease on a new Lexus! During the afternoon round, we had two Belle Isle tents set up on the course for our participants. The evening wrapped up with some snacks and refreshments during the award ceremony.

On Tuesday, June 12, Lexus of Richmond held our event “A Night In Tokyo” at Independence Golf Club. A Night In Tokyo was a celebration of all things Lexus. The evening was inspired by the Lexus and Japanese craftsmanship, perfection, and amazing experiences.
Throughout the night, we had several vehicles on the lawn at Independence. There were several LS 500’s as well as a RX 350 and a ES 350. We were even lucky enough to have a structural blue LC 500. There were only 300 structural blue LCs put into production, so we were honored to have one at Lexus of Richmond and our event.

Overall it was a great day out enjoyed by all, and we enjoyed mingling in the crowd and having a excellent time with everyone.
We would like to thank BB&T for putting on this wonderful event held on April 20, 2017 at The Country Club of Virginia on Saint Andrews Lane in Richmond, Virginia. Lexus of Richmond was proud to be invited and be a part of such a fun afternoon with terrific company.
The lawn was filled with numerous vehicles from dealerships throughout the RVA area. We displayed our top of the line 2017 LS sedan as well as our 2017 RC coupe.
Lexus provided the pace car for the event, a beautiful 2017 Lexus GX 460 pictured above! The event consisted of performances from River Dancers and musicians. The 5k race kicked off at 9AM and in just under 16 minutes the 1st racer crossed the finish line. Shortly after the kids 1K got started. The Chick-Fil-A cows even made an appearance in their Shamrock 5K gear. The day was filled with food, giveaways, running, and great Irish spirit by all in attendance!
We were able to showcase a 2017 Lexus NX 200t F Sport outside the stadium. Inside we let fans enter our contest to win an all expenses paid weekend in New York City. The lucky winner will receive transportation, hotel accommodations, a gift card for dinner, and tickets to a Knicks game for themselves and a guest.
During the game, the Rams continuously fought off Davidson to come out on top 74-60. This win marked the 6th win in a row for the Rams. We are pleased to sponsor this great team and be a part of RamNation!
The VA Home for Boys and Girls was founded in 1846 in Church Hill. It relocated to it’s current location in 1957. Originally a male only organization, in 2004, the home decided to start housing females as well.
The children here can come from the Department of Social Justice, Juvenile Justice, social service organizations, and even parents/guardians of the children. When possible the children return to their families and homes, but some move into independent living or possibly adoptive/foster homes. The VHBG facilities are located on 30+ acres and include: residential homes, an alternative school, a counseling clinic, a chapel, dining areas, a gym, and multiple sports fields.

On Friday, November 18, Lexus of Richmond was in full force at Westchester Commons for their Tree Lighting ceremony. The evening was full of fun and excitement for children and adults alike!
There was live music from the School of Rock, a hot chocolate bar, marshmallow roasting and many other activities for the kids. Of course the night would not be complete without an appearance from Santa himself!
Santa upgraded his sleigh this year. He was not brought in by his reindeer, but instead a red Lexus IS 250 convertible! Once Santa made his way through the crowd, he had the kids help light the tree with him. After a few “snow flurries” the kids lined up to meet Santa and take pictures.
It was truly a great night had by all! Lexus of Richmond is honored to have been a part of such a wonderful family night!
