HYUNDAI WITH HEART A Dealership That Makes a Difference PHOTOS SIMPLE SHOTS BY JACKIE
hen Ron Kaban established Yorkton Hyundai almost four years ago, no one could have expected the success that was to come. Since opening, Yorkton Hyundai has solidified a spot as one of the top 10 Hyundai dealerships in Canada. Considering that there are more than 200 dealerships in the country, this ranking is a major feat. In 2012, Yorkton Hyundai was awarded the President’s Award — it was a great accomplishment for a dealership in Saskatchewan, signalling excellence in community and customer service as well as sales momentum and growth. The awards
and accomplishments indicate that Yorkton Hyundai is on the right path to proving they are a strong dealership with heart and community spirit in spades. A huge supporter of the local community, Yorkton Hyundai is always willing to support and lend a hand to local organizations. “We are supported by our community, so we consider it a privilege to give back,” says dealer principal Ron Kaban. Hyundai for Habitat has been an amazing partnership, beginning with the donation of a new 2013 Hyundai vehicle sponsored by Hyundai Auto Canada
and Yorkton Hyundai. Last year, Habitat for Humanity raised $25,000 through vehicle ticket sales. This year, the target is $50,000. “Our long-term goal is to support a Hyundai for Habitat house, right here in Yorkton,” says Kaban. Kidsport has also been the recipient of this dealership’s huge giving heart. With a donation of $5020 in 2012, this year the dealership has raised $13,265 through Hyundai Hockey Helpers. Kidsport takes those donations and helps to suit up and pay fees for children who otherwise wouldn’t be able to play the game.
