Event Details

UVA Community Credit Union and four of Charlottesville’s largest automotive dealers will sponsor The Big Auto Roundup, a five-day automotive selling event, from April 16 - 20 at John Paul Jones Arena in Charlottesville. The event is free and open to the public.

The Big Auto Roundup will features thousands of new and used cars and trucks at special show prices from Battlefield Ford, Brown Automotive, Colonial Automotive and Jim Price Automotive. Attendees can find cars to fit every budget, starting as low as $3,995.00. UVA Community Credit Union will have on-the-spot financing as low as 1.99%APR.

Thousands of area households will receive a Big Auto Roundup postcard in the mail. Attendees who present their postcard at the event will have a chance to crack the six-digit code on the cash vault to win $25,000 in cash. Additional postcards are available at participating dealers and all credit union branch locations.

“The Big Auto Roundup is a wonderful opportunity to browse thousands of makes and models in one place and find a great deal on a new or used vehicle,” said Tom Lincoln, vice-president of lending for UVA Community Credit Union. “The chance to play our cash vault game and win $25,000 adds even more excitement.”

A portion of The Big Auto Roundup proceeds will benefit AHIP: Home Repair Non-Profit. In 2012, the four auto dealerships and the credit union donated both labor and money for materials to construct a wheelchair ramp at the home of an area resident.

“We are very pleased to be a beneficiary of The Big Auto Roundup,” said Ravi Respeto, development and marketing director for AHIP, “The needs for emergency home repair, housing rehab and affordable housing in our area is greater than ever. We look forward to once again partnering with Battlefield Ford, Brown Automotive, Colonial Auto Center, Jim Price Automotive and UVA Community Credit Union to help improve the lives of area residents.”

The Big Auto Roundup begins with a special preview for credit union members and invited guests on April 16 from 3 p.m. – 8 p.m. The event continues for four additional days, April 17, 18, 19, 9 a.m. – 8 p.m. and April 20 from 9 a.m. – 6 p.m. For more information including dealer inventory, financing and loan pre-approval, and details about the chance to win $25,000, visit
