2023 Top Chevrolet Salesman: Donny Abboud


As we navigated the madness of March, Jeff Belzer’s made sure that the community was top of mind. Giving back to our beloved communities has always been a necessity, as we would not be the business we are today without their support. This month, we will highlight the amazing opportunity that the Lakeville South Marching Band had along with the annual Twin Cities Auto Show. In addition, we will celebrate the 2023 Chevrolet awards that we were proud to accept.


Chevrolet Accolades 

March 28, 2024 marked the annual Chevrolet Minneapolis Sales Recognition Meeting. Here, Jeff Belzer’s Chevrolet was honored to be named Minnesota’s #1 Volume Chevrolet Dealership. We have earned this award for the past numerous years, and we are humbled to have received it again. In addition, our very own Donny Abboud won top salesman of the year in Minnesota, with 226 sales. Congratulations, Donny! Jeff Belzer’s Chevrolet has much to be proud of, and we want to thank all of you for your continued support.

We also had the privilege of listening to guest speaker John Kriesel. John is a veteran who served in the Iraq War and lost both legs, and multiple comrades, in an explosion. His storytelling ability is unmatched and undoubtedly moves all who listen. His message is one of positivity, optimism, and attitude. The mantra that he has since lived by is “Life is good. Life is so darn good.” His message helps put things into perspective, and helps us be grateful for what we have. We highly recommend you support him by visiting his website, purchasing his book, “Still Standing: The Story of SSG John Kriesel,” or following him on Facebook to hear his inspiring words. From all of at Jeff Belzer’s, thank you for your service, John. 


Lakeville South High School Band Lakeville South Band

This year, the Lakeville South High School Marching Band had the incredible opportunity to go to Ireland. The students marched in the St. Patrick’s Day parade in Dublin, showcasing their talent. All of their hard work and training over the past several months had culminated to this: a once in a lifetime opportunity to play in front of an international audience. We have no doubt that this trip was one that they will never forget. Jeff Belzer’s helped cover some of the busing expense to support this amazing opportunity. We hope it was a fantastic trip – great work, Lakeville South Band! Fox 9 did a story highlighting the trip: check it out here 



Twin Cities Auto Show 

This year’s Auto Show took place at the Minneapolis Convention Center from March 30 – April 7. This event is geared towards the general public and showcases hundreds of vehicles. This allows you to look at all sorts of makes and models without having to drive around to different dealerships. You will see luxury vehicles as well as more affordable, family cars. Attendees can even get behind the wheel and take it for a drive around a course. You will also learn about the technological advancements and get sneak peeks into the new models and prototypes. There is no other event like this in the Twin Cities area. Jeff Belzer’s sent out some of our sales consultants to represent Stellantis this year. Although the event has come and gone, make sure to get the 2025 Twin Cities Auto Show on your calendar!
