Vermont – The Voltage no stranger to working in the community with our youth and now they will be able to do even more with their new partnership with Carbone Auto. “Carbone Auto Group, founded in 1929, is a large automobile dealer group with fourteen dealerships located in Utica and Troy, New York, and Bennington, Vermont. Franchises represented include GMC, Buick, Cadillac, Chevrolet, Nissan, Dodge, Chrysler, Ram, Jeep, Honda, Hyundai, Subaru, Toyota, and Harley-Davidson. Carbone Auto Group is a 2013 Ward’s automotive top 100 megadealer. The group is committed to giving back to the communities it serves through its partnerships with numerous charitable organizations.
Arriving along with all the new Voltage players and the new partnership between the Vermont Voltage and Carbone Auto comes a new shoot-out contest to take place at the end of the Voltage season. Carbone Auto will be giving all fans that attend the Voltage home games a chance to enter a drawing to win a brand new car of their choice at the end of the season. Along with that, there will be countless half time promotions, prizes, and give-a-ways at all voltage games.Bo Vuckovic, GM of the Vermont Voltage and owner of the Bennington Sports Center is very happy and thankful for the opportunity to have a great partnership with Carbone Auto. “We are privileged to be able to work together and give more opportunities to young people across Vermont.” The Voltage strives to be able to help make many sports not just soccer a part of everyone’s lives. They want to promote a healthy life style for all in the community starting from the 3-5 year olds that participate in the Mini Volts programs to adults that play in our Men’s and CoEd soccer leagues with almost 80 players, and their CoEd outdoor beach volleyball league with almost 75 players; to the winter indoor soccer leagues has over 1500 participants. With Partners like Carbone Auto, the Vermont Voltage/Bennington Sports Center were able to improve its Monument Soccer Club which involves 7 youth teams; U-8 Coed, u10 boys, u12 boys & girls, u14 girls, and u18 boys & girls.
The partnership the Voltage and Carbone Auto has made the Voltages first team able to affect the lives of young people all over Vermont through their PDL league as well as their summer camps. “Everything we do at Voltage is to be a bigger part of community, and they (Carbone Auto) support all these programs and more.” Said Bo. This country is trying to stress to our youth how important it is to have a healthy life style and the Vermont Voltage is doing the same in our community. Voltages teaches Vermont’s youth not make better life choices through sports and exercise and sports; in hope that less of our children will be involved in the drugs and crime taking over our communities. Not only trying to educate our youth but also giving them role models is an important part of setting the correct example. The Voltage first team regularly works with kids to make them better athletes, but what you don’t see is the conversations they have with the kids they coach about the important choices that are needed to be made in order to have a good and healthy life. All this does not only affect the kids in our communities but other in the surrounding area also. Children from Northern Vermont, Western Mass, and Eastern New York also have been attracted to the programs provided by the Vermont Voltage/Bennington Sports Center with the help of Carbone Auto.
