The numbers are in and we are so happy to announce that, thanks to all our amazing customers, we were able to raise $10,000 for Bosom Buddies during Breast Cancer Awareness Month!
If you didn’t already know, Bosom Buddies is a local organization that helps women fight breast cancer a couple different ways. First, they assist families who simply cannot afford proper treatment for breast cancer. But Bosom Buddies also holds educational clinics and support groups that help women during this trying time in their life.
According to Joetta Abbazio, the President of Bosom Buddies, “We service men and women in Collier County and Bonita Springs and we help them with the diagnosis and treatment of breast cancer. All the money that we raise stays here,” Abbazio said at the check-awarding ceremony. “We also run a support group that meets twice a month in the evenings; we council over the phone as well.”
The bottom line is Bosom Buddies is an incredible organization and it was our pleasure to present them with this money. If you’re interested in learning more about Bosom Buddies, feel free to check out their website!
Thanks to our amazing customers, we were pleased to present this check to Bosom Buddies after partnering with them for Breast Cancer Awareness Month!

We think you’ll be pleasantly surprised once you see how much Buick has stepped up its game, and even more surprised when you see the price tag. But don’t wait too long- these offers expire December 2nd!
Just about a week ago we did a blog on the available safety features in the new Buick Enclave. We talked mostly about the rear view camera, which allows the driver to see where he or she normally would not be able to, and the Blind Spot Alert System, which, as the name suggests, alerts the driver of people in the blind spot.
Well today we would like to talk with you a little more about safety features, only this time we’re going to switch our focus to an SUV that’s a little bit bigger than the Enclave: the new 2015 GMC Yukon XL Denali.
We’re most excited about the forward collision alert system in Yukon Denali. Essentially there are sensors in the front that can detect when the you’re getting too close to an object in front of you. So if the person you’re following unexpectedly slams on the brake, the Yukon Denali will alert you via audible sounds or seat vibrations.
For a more in-depth look at the safety features in the new 2015 GMC Yukon Denali, please check out the video below:
If you have any questions about this, or any other Buick or GMC model, please feel free to stop by DeVoe Buick GMC anytime!
Let’s face the facts. Driving can be very dangerous! You never know when someone is going to be hanging out in your blind spot, or when somebody left their bike right in the middle of the driveway. That’s why the engineers over at Buick have developed several safety features that help you, well, see things you wouldn’t normally be able to see.
The blind spot is the perfect example. You simply cannot see your blind spot (hence the name). So that’s why the new Buick Enclave has a blind-spot indicator that will warn you when someone is in that area next to your car.
The rear vision camera is another feature on the Enclave that allows you to see where you normally would not be able to.
Check out the video below to see how the Buick Enclave is smart, made beautiful:
“The 2014 Buick Regal Turbo AWD combines the elegance of a luxury car with the power of a sports car in one beautiful package. This is not the Buick your Father drove. It’s much better.”
That’s what The Fast Lane Car had to say about the new 2014 Buick Regal Turbo AWD after taking it for a test drive. Pretty cool, right? Gone are the days of thinking that Buick is the brand exclusively reserved for old-folks. Buick has moved on from those days and is now a real competitor among performance and luxury cars!
Check out the video below to see some of the awesome features that are either included or available on the 2014 Buick Regal GS:
Want to take one of these bad boys for a test drive? Stop by DeVoe Buick GMC in Naples! We have the 2014 Buick Regal GS in stock and would love to answer any questions you may have about it. We’re located one mile south of Pine Ridge Road and we hope to see you soon!
Well today is the first day of November. Do you know what that means? It means Breast Cancer Awareness month is officially over, and thus, so is the special we were running during October where we made a donation to Bosom Buddies for every car sold, leased or serviced.
And we just want to say, thank you so so very much to everyone who came in last month to show their support! Whether you purchased a new car or got an oil change, you helped make a difference in someones life who is dealing with something very difficult.
But just because Breast Cancer Awareness month is over doesn’t mean we can just forget about it until next October! Bosom Buddies is just an awesome local non-profit that could always use some help in the form of financial assistance or volunteers. If you feel like that may be something you’re interested in doing, please feel free to visit the Bosom Buddies website or give them a call at 239-417-4600.
GM literally cannot wait to release the 2015 GMC Yukon—that’s how excited they are about their commitment to the full-size SUV segment. The 2015 GMC Yukon, expected to hit dealers as early as February 2014, will come in three grades: the Yukon, Yukon XL, and Denali. The 2015 models see extensive and significant upgrades to many areas of the SUV, including fuel efficiency, power, safety, and technology.
“We’ve engineered the Yukon and Yukon XL from the ground up,” Tony DiSalle, vice president of GMC Marketing, said in a press release, “building on a strong legacy of capability to take them to the top of the segment with exceptional refinement and purposeful technology. And when it comes to the tasks people rely on a full-size SUV for, they do it better than ever—and with more style.” A definite full-size SUV, the Yukon delivers roominess, storage space, and towing capacity at segment-leading levels packaged in a sleek exterior, especially for such a large vehicle.
The 2015 Yukon gets a big boost from GMC’s new EcoTec3 engine—the Yukon and Yukon XL come with a 5.3L engine while the Denali bumps it up to a 6.2L engine. You can either wait till February to check out this graceful beast for yourself, or you can come down to DeVoe Buick GMC in Naples, Florida today and check out the Yukon and Yukon Denali today.
Most people know that October is breast cancer awareness month; but what you may not know is what DeVoe Buick GMC is doing this month to make a difference in the aid in the fight(hint: the title of this blog is a dead giveaway). All of us here at DeVoe Buick GMC are proud to announce that we have partnered up with Bosom Buddies of Collier County to raise money for men and women in the area who are currently in the fight against breast cancer.
In a nutshell, Bosom Buddies is a local non-profit organization, based out of Naples, that “raises money for the men and women who are uninsured or underinsured and facing the diagnosis of breast cancer.”
So in an effort to help out Bosom Buddies during this breast cancer awareness month, we’ve decided to make a donation to Bosom Buddies for every purchase, lease, or service on any new or pre-owned vehicle at DeVoe Auto. We’ve made a lot of progress so far, but there’s still 10 more days in the month, and a lot more money that can be raised!
So with that said, won’t you consider checking out that car you’ve been eyeing, or finally changing the oil on your car? Every dollar counts. Stop by DeVoe Auto today!
DeVoe Auto is proud to support Bosom Buddies this Breast Cancer Awareness Month!
Seriously! If you’re looking for a luxury car that is fun-to-drive and packs a little punch under the hood, look no further.

Just because our local trees don’t turn into a rainbow of colors in the autumn, that doesn’t mean we can’t enjoy this beautiful season. Autumn brings cooler temperatures and less humidity making outdoor activities increasingly pleasant. It is the perfect time of years for festivals and fall festivities are in no short supply in southern Florida.
October is just around the corner and the month is filled with fun. Here are a handful of festivals and activities we recommend taking of advantage of this year.
Movies on the Lawn at Mercato – This family-friendly event will show the movie Hotel Transylvania. It is free, so bring a blanket or some chairs and relax under the stars. The show starts October 15 at 7:30 PM and is located across from The Pub in Naples.
Stone Crab Festival – This festival held October 25-27 is on the historical Old Naples Waterfront. It features live music, art, vendors, family activities, and, of course, locally harvested stone crab claws, fish, and other shellfish. The event is free and open to the public.
American Musical Heritage Lectures: Fall Series – If music history is your passion, attend this series of lectures beginning at the end of October. The series will present topics relating to music history and choreography. Call 239-597-0670 for details.
Swamp Buggy Races – The Budweiser Fall Classic Swamp Buggy Races is a thrilling event. You’re sure to get a little dirty as this is known as the world’s muddiest races. This year, this event will be held November 2-3 at the Florida Sports Park.
Have a favorite local fall event you love to attend? Give us the details in the comments below.
