Pine Belt Chevrolet Joins Chevrolet Dealers Nationwide to Fight Breast Cancer!
October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month and Chevrolet Dealers nationwide are celebrating the brand’s 100th birthday by joining with the American Cancer Society to help create a world with Less Cancer, a world with More Birthdays.
Pine Belt Chevrolet of Eatontown is proud to join Making Strides Against Breast Cancer. Pine Belt employees have joined the team and will participate in the Making Strides walk in Point Pleasant Beach on October 16th and will be asking their friends and family to help support this effort by making online donations to the American Cancer Society – Donate Today
Breast Cancer is expected to take the lives of nearly 40,000 women in 2011 and nearly a quarter of a million new cases are estimated to be found. Even men can get breast cancer. While far less common than for women, more than 2000 men are diagnosed each year with breast cancer. Making Strides Against Breast Cancer helps support the American Cancer Society and its efforts to find better treatments, earlier diagnoses, and programs to support Breast Cancer survivors and their families.
Chevrolet is joining the Society to help support Making Strides and the American Cancer Society. As part of its 100th Birthday Celebration Chevrolet will be offering special programs and discounts, including service rebates, which we will encourage customers to donate the American Cancer Society.
No one is untouched by cancer and Breast Cancer in particular. We all know someone who has lost a loved one to Breast Cancer. Early diagnosis and early treatment can help survival rates. Scientists and doctors continue to find new ways to fight these diseases and more and more women are surviving, but so much work remains. We at Pine Belt wholeheartedly support the American Cancer Society and ask you to help too! Support the American Cancer Society and Making Strides Against Breast Cancer. For 100 years Chevrolet has been part of life’s journeys – even the detours. With your help we can all find a smoother road for those people who have heard the words “You Have Breast Cancer”.

Chevrolet models make the grade
Every Chevrolet is built to be safe. We’d like to say we do it to win awards, but the truth is, we just think about safety – a lot. Some would even call us safety fanatics. Thankfully, according to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, that isn’t a bad thing.
In a recent evaluation by the IIHS, the 2011 Chevrolet Equinox and Traverse received the highest possible rating of “good” in a rollover test assessing vehicle roof strength. Just one rigorous test among four, these high marks carried over and, in the end, resulted in the Institute’s Top Safety Pick award for every 2011 Equinox model and 2011 Traverse models built after January 2011.
The 2011 Traverse is a great example of Chevrolet’s commitment to safety – before, during and after a crash.
To help drivers avoid accidents, Chevrolet added safety features like StabiliTrak Electronic Stability Control, Traction Control, and antilock brakes.
Rollover sensing, six standard air bags, front-seat safety belt pretensioners and load limiters help protect occupants during an accident. And afterwards, OnStar’s Automatic Crash Response, which is standard for six months alerts first responders, allowing medical assistance to arrive as quickly as possible.
The IIHS Top Safety Pick award reinforces what Chevrolet already knew about Traverse and Equinox.
Naming agreement will help school district upgrade educational technology
After a tumultuous year for the Toms River School District with events surrounding the investigation and arrest of former Superintendent Michael Ritacco, things are starting to turn around for the district plagued by the fallout from the alleged circumstances of Ritacco’s tenure. Two weeks ago, the district announced at the monthly school board meeting the naming rights for the Arena that had beared Ritacco’s name, prior to its removal in October of 2010, were sold to regional automotive leaders, Pine Belt. Today, the district announced the new name of the center will be the Pine Belt Center, replacing the existing contract with Poland Springs.
Pine Belt Auto Group has agreed to pay $100,000.00 per year for the next five years. Superintendent of Schools Frank Roselli states, “The district is very excited to enter a partnership for the arena with a business group who has a proven record of supporting students, families, and the community for many years. Pine Belt Auto Group’s purchase of the naming rights will allow us to provide updated technology to our 17,300 students from K-12 on a continuing basis.”
Vice President Rob Sickel of Pine Belt in Lakewood details, “The Pine Belt Auto Group understands that the future of our community is in the schools. The children that attend Toms River Regional will grow to be the future leaders, business owners, and parents of the Toms River community. We are proud to be the supporters of technology that will allow our students access to new equipment and be able to keep up with technology that is ever changing.” After initially reporting that no bids were received in a prior RFP, the Pine Belt deal will continue to provide the school district with a source of revenue from the agreement for the next 5 years.
Mike Trebino of Pine Belt in Toms River states, “I have four daughters that have grown up in the digital world. We at the Pine Belt Auto Group understand how quickly technology changes and the importance of students having the tools and connectivity to access the newest information, software, and computers. Pine Belt Auto Group values education and the community. This partnership is a perfect mix of both”.
Frank Roselli continues, “School funding is always a balance of what the student s need and what the taxpayers can afford. Alternate school funding allows us to keep the tax rate and the per pupil costs one of the lowest in the K-12 3500+ students category. We are looking forward to a successful partnership whose main goal is proving technology resources for students.” The newly-named Pine Belt Arena opened in June of 2003 and has since hosted hundreds of concerts, basketball and wresting championship games, veteran events, student assemblies, intermediate and high school graduations and many different community events. Gym classes are held in the arena during the school year.
Some big names have graced the stage of the arena through the years including The Beach Boys, Kelly Clarkson, Kenny Rogers and The Moody Blues. The arena is the annual host to the NJSIAA high school basketball and wrestling regional championship matches each spring as well as the popular WOBM season opening basketball tournaments. It has become the Jersey Shore’s premier high school indoor sports venue since its opening in 2003.
With the past now firmly behind the Ritacco Center and the uncertainty of the sponsorship of the center no longer a concern, District officials are looking forward to the many future opportunities the arena and the new agreement will bring. “We are excited for the opportunities this gives to kids.” said Tammi Millar, the District’s Communications Coordinator.

THE ALL NEW 2011 CRUZE
Cruze challenges conventional compact wisdom with one simple word: more. Its cavernous, quiet interior and beautifully sculpted exterior feel like luxury. Cruze is filled with performance, safety and technology features you won’t believe come in a compact.
Cruze Eco Has the Best Highway Mileage of Any Gas Engine in America
Introducing Cruze Eco with amazing highway fuel economy at 42 MPG that doesn’t sacrifice the sculpted exterior design that sets Cruze apart from the competition. Learn more about America’s best conventional gasoline car.
Get Used to More: Cruze offers upscale presence with the fuel economy and price tag of a compact. And with its sculpted exterior and refined interior, it feels more like a sanctuary than a car when you’re behind the wheel. Looks like you’ll have to get used to more. More Safety: The Cruze is designed to offer continuous protection to you and your precious cargo. It’s more safety than you’re used to, but you’ll adjust. More Performance: With the fuel economy of a compact car and the amenities of a midsize, Cruze gives you the best of two worlds. Making a choice can be difficult, so don’t. More Features: With all its upscale amenities and features like available navigation and refined interior finishes, Cruze offers a premium driving experience.
EXTERIOR: Raising the Bar and Turning Heads: Cruze has a distinct look — one you won’t see in other cars in its class. Its beveled hood, sharp angles and sculpted fenders are details generally reserved for luxury vehicles — but not anymore.
INTERIOR: Cruze only seems like a compact from the outside. Inside, it’s a different story. The cavernous interior of Cruze not only has more passenger room than Honda Civic and Toyota Corolla, but it also has more cargo space too. That’s something to brag about, but Cruze chooses to go about things quietly in the interior. It’s designed with 30 distinct acoustical treatments — including a triple-sealed, acoustic-laminated glass windshield — to create a serene interior. With a package so complete, it’s easy to see why Cruze is Vincentric’s Best Value in America as well as one of Ward’s 10 Best Interiors of 2011.
“This is a pretty darn good little car that’s suitable for most of the occasions of everyday life. It’s decent-looking, has a nice interior, generally sips fuel yet still has a hint of punch from the turbo and is a significant step forward for Chevrolet.” – Auto Week
Cruze has solutions most compacts don’t offer. Its standard 6-speed transmissions, like the manual in Cruze LS, help offer 26 MPG city and 36 MPG highway(2). Cruze LT and LTZ have a 6-speed automatic transmission and the 1.4L turbocharged engine – a performance increase that helps Cruze offer 36 MPG highway. And Cruze Eco offers 42 MPG highway – that’s better standard highway fuel economy than what a comparably equipped 2012 Ford Focus, 2011 Honda Civic and Toyota Corolla offer.
When we wanted to test handling and braking, where better than on the ice and snow of Scandinavia? Cruze proved itself in some hostile environments: continuous driving in the heat of the Arabian Desert, high-altitude in the Alps, intense moisture in Thailand and more. Then it was put through the paces on some of the best test tracks in the world, including the famed Nürburgring in Germany. Cruze is one of the most tested vehicles in Chevrolet history, and that’s why we guarantee the quality with a 100,000 mile/5-year Powertrain Warranty.
Cruze engineers applied the same philosophy to safety that they did to everything else — more. And when you add more safety features, you’d better make room on the mantle for more accolades.
The Cruze is an IIHS “2011 Top Safety Pick” and received a 5-star overall vehicle score for safety from the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration (NHTSA)(17). And not to toot our own horn, but we earned that 5-star rating even after NHTSA instituted a stricter grading scale and more challenging evaluations.
It comes as no surprise when you think of all the safety features packed into Cruze. There are 10 standard air bags(18) to help protect heads, chests and knees, and it’s designed with a high-strength steel safety cage and roof-crush resistance that outperforms the requirements. Even better, every Cruze comes protected and connected by OnStar(11) with Directions & Connections® Plan — including Automatic Crash Response — standard for the first six months.
