Congratulations to Amanda Burnsed of Claxton, Ga., who won Ward’s raffle for four NASCAR tickets to the Coke Zero 400 at Daytona International Speedway! We’re thrilled the raffle brought in $1,000 – and all proceeds will benefit Savannah’s MS Walk, which successfully drew thousands of participants to Daffin Park on Saturday. Thank you to Axalta Coating Systems and Finishmaster Automotive Paints for donating the tickets!
After outgrowing a smaller shop in Brooklet in about a year's time, Ward's Auto Painting & Bodyworks moved in January to a larger, established shop on U.S. Highway 301 South, next door to J.C. Lewis Ford in Statesboro. An open house event is scheduled for April 30. But according to Ward's Auto Painting & Bodyworks founder Robbie Ward, Statesboro can expect another grand opening from his company in 2017. When the former Ford body shop became available, Ward took the opportunity to lease it because the volume of work here required more space.
