Lake Wales CDJR to Host Televised Agriculture Event

Local Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram Dealership Selected to Represent Southeast Region

The Certified Agriculture Dealer (CAD) Program, and their partner RFD-TV, have selected Lake Wales Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram among eight Certified Agriculture Dealer locations as hosts of a March 21 broadcast to help bring a local flavor to the Washington D.C. events scheduled to celebrate National Agriculture Day.

"This is AgRally's third year as America's only national springtime agriculture event. From calves dropping everywhere between both coasts, to the season's first seeds hitting the soil in the south, THIS is the beginning of our new year," notes CEO Patrick Driscoll, "and just like Dick Clark's Rockin' New Years Eve celebrates the new year, we are the celebration of Agriculture's New Year!"

"Through dozens of local AgRally host sites, this national event ... complete with new product reveals, product updates and deep dives into emerging technologies ... becomes very local. By placing live cameras at a handful of these local events, they become part of the national celebration," Driscoll added.

The local Florida celebration will be hosted at Lake Wales CDJR, which is a Low Payment King /Mahalak Auto Group dealership. This is the third year that the Lake Wales dealership has been chosen as an AG Rally site for National Agriculture Day at their locations. Join us at Lake Wales CDJR which is a participating Certified Agriculture Dealership to be part of the National AG Rally.
