Murray GM enjoys being active in the community of Fort St. John, whether by raising funds and awareness for charities, or sponsoring local events.
Here's an overview of Murray GM participation in events on a national and local level.
At Murray GM, hockey is a way of life! We're jazzed to be out on the ice in the Crystal Cup Pond Hockey Challenge on Charlie Lake!
The weekend of July 22-23 was a busy one for Fort St John! Both the 25th Annual Fort St John Airshow and the Fort St John Rodeo (back after a 12 year hiatus!) took place!
Murray GM was very proud to be a sponsor at both of the family events!
Murray GM in partnership with 100.1 FM The Moose hosted the Hands on for a Camaro contest! 40 contestants were selected to compete for the chance to drive away with a brand new 2017 Chevrolet Camaro!
The contestants were required to stand for 48 hours touching the car with nothing but the palms of their hands! In the end, there were 4 remaining contestants. A random key selection meant that Kristie Mayer drove away in her new ride!
The 55th Annual Fort St John Oilmen's Association Golf Tournament proved to be exciting for one golfer. Manny Gairdner of Fort Nelson hit a hole-in-one on hole 10 and won a $25,000 credit at Murray GM!

The Rotary Club of Fort St John held their 6th Annual Mother's Day Run & Walk. As usual, it was a smashing success, and we at Murray GM are so proud to have been a part of it! The fields were a little muddy, but that didn't stop anyone from showing up, running, and enjoying the beautiful sun that came out!
Along with Moose FM and other community sponsors, we hosted an event we called 'Hands on for a Cruze'! We selected 30 contestants to sit at the Mall for 2 days touching a brand new 2016 Cruze. Everyone who stopped touching the vehicle was eliminated and we were down to 5 people left at the end!
Together, the staff of Murray GM and the students of North Peace Secondary School hosted a Buick Test Drive For Your Students event that took place at our local high school on the 28th. For every person who came out to test drive a vehicle, Buick donated $20 to the Basketball Teams, Volleyball Team, and Avid class. We raised over $4,000!
We'd like to congratulate our hard working staff on receiving these 2015 General Motor Guild Awards! We're proud to have such dedicated staff in all departments of our dealership.
For the 3rd year in a row, Murray GM is proud to have hosted 'Love Your Pet Month'. Raising $785 and a truck full of items requested by the North Peace SPCA. We'd like to thank all our fantastic customers who helped us raise money for our local animals.
