June is here and so is this month’s “Dealership Spotlight.” The dealership featured this month is one of our newest dealerships, having joined the Butter Braid® family in 2017. Big Sky Fundraising is owned by Chris and Joy Skovira. The Skoviras put a lot of heart into their fundraisers because they care so much about the causes and groups they serve, and that extra care is why groups love to work with them.
Chris and Joy have 3 children, and over the years their children have been involved in many extracurricular activities which means the Skovira participated in plenty of fundraisers to help support their children. The family quickly got familiar with most kinds of fundraising products, but no product ever really “wowed” them until one year when Joy bought two Butter Braid pastries from a coworker selling them for her granddaughter. Chris and Joy tried their first Butter Braid pastry on Christmas Day 2016, and they fell in love with the taste and quality of the product. To this day, Chris says it was the greatest Christmas present he ever received.
The Skoviras opened their dealership a short time later in Hot Springs, Virginia. Chris had plenty of experience owning his own business as his family has owned several different businesses throughout the years. His family always built their businesses on a foundation of great customer service, and that is what set them apart from everyone else. Chris built his dealership on that same foundation; his devotion to his customers is why they keep coming back to him and his business every year.
Chris and Joy love hearing how well groups have done with their fundraising program. They’ve helped raise money for Disney band trips, the Alzheimer’s Walk, a Nicaragua mission trip, Operation Christmas Child, and more. In the 2 ½ years they’ve been working with these groups, they’ve helped raise over $125,000.
Big Sky Fundraising’s customers rave about their experience with Chris and his team. Chef Sandra H., a culinary arts teacher at Buckingham CTE Central, said, “Butter Braid pastry fundraising through Big Sky Fundraising has been a wonderful experience! Butter Braid pastries are an excellent product plus the customer service and attention to detail provided by Chris and his team is exceptional. I will continue to use Butter Braid pastries as our primary fundraising effort and recommend it to my colleagues.” Ann S., an employee at a local learning center, wrote, “The Skoviras are efficient, helpful, and accommodating in every way, doing most of the work for us!”
The Butter Braid brand is glad Big Sky Fundraising is part of the family. The Skoviras and their team are a caring group of people who are devoted to helping others raise money for their great causes. If you live on the western border of Virginia or in Charlottesville or Harrisonburg, Big Sky Fundraising is there to help you will all your fundraising needs.
