New Prague High School presentation


Spring is in full bloom, and so is our commitment to making a positive impact within the community. In the April edition of Belzer in the Community, we will share our initiatives of promoting automotive financial literacy within the schools and our support of a comedy show and school gala. We will also share information about an upcoming event and donation drive. Join Jeff Belzer’s as we work to educate, inspire, and celebrate our beloved community.


New Prague High School Activation 

April is financial literacy month, which means that Jeff Belzer’s took to the schools to educate students on automotive financial literacy. A finance manager from New Prague went to New Prague High School and gave a presentation on all things automotive. Topics included interest rates, loan terms, warranties, new vs. used, and the car-buying process in general. The students were engaged in Q&A sessions and had lots of great questions for us. We had a wonderful time and look forward to continuing these initiatives next school year. Educating young adults on the complex topic of buying a vehicle is something that is important to us, and we are excited to grow our reach next year. Thank you to New Prague High School for having us!

Providence Academy Gala 

Jeff Belzer’s was a Silver Sponsor of the Providence Academy Gala this past month. Located in Plymouth, Minnesota, Providence Academy is a nonprofit, co-educational Roman Catholic school that serves students from Pre-K to 12th grade. This year, it with the 23rd Annual Gala and the theme was Kentucky Derby. It was a wonderful night of celebration and raising funds for the school, which was a record-setting year. Congratulations to Providence Academy for a successful night — we are happy that we were a part of it! 


New Prague Comedy Night Chevy Equinox on site at event

KCHK, beloved radio station based in New Prague, hosted the Ingstad Comedy Tour at the Park Ballroom in April. There were five entertainers in total with two headliners: Fred Bevill and Jon Stringer. These performers were traveling throughout the Midwest for their shows and landed in New Prague, Minnesota! There were many references and jokes about the small-town feel, which we definitely found amusing. Throughout the whole night, no one stopped laughing, and there is no doubt that most people’s cheeks were hurting from smiling so much. This was a truly memorable night! Jeff Belzer’s was a sponsor of this wonderful event, and we were happy to invite some of our employees out to enjoy the night. Thank you again to KCHK for hosting! 



Upcoming Events 

Youth Fishing Day 

Mark your calendars for Wednesday, June 19th from 4:00 – 7:00 pm! Glenn Walker, pro fisherman, will be at our New Prague location (1181 280th Street West, New Prague, Minnesota 56071) for a youth fishing day. He will teach his expertise to the kids through knot tying, casting practice, and overall fishing information. There will be prizes and a tackle box for every person to take home with them! It will be a great summer family event that you won’t want to miss. We will see you there!  


JP4 Foundation Water and Baseball Glove Drive 

Jeff Belzer’s is excited to announce that we will be hosting a water and baseball glove drive from Monday, May 27th to Friday, June 7th. This will benefit the JP4 Foundation, whose mission is to enrich the lives of youth in underserved communities. They accomplish this through summer-long camps and the “Diamond Club”, an after-school program designed to create meaningful relationships between students and a young adult mentor. This organization was initially created to honor the life of Johnny Price IV and improve the lives of youth through baseball, the sport that Johnny loved. They have expanded from this initial mission, but baseball is still an important part of their programming. 

Every summer, they go through more than 3,000 bottles of water and are always in need of gently used baseball gloves. Jeff Belzer’s is hosting a donation drive to collect baseball gloves and bottled water. If you are able, we encourage you to drop off these items at any of our locations: Lakeville, New Prague, and Roseville, Minnesota. We truly appreciate your generosity and support of the JP4 Foundation.
