and John Thompson, Vice President of the Thompson Organization


On Friday, October 17th, The Thompson Organization delivered more than 200 new winter coats to Tabor Children's Services and Bucks County Children and Youth Social Services, both in Doylestown. The coats were part of Driving Away the Cold, organized by the Auto Dealers CARing for Kids Foundation and Automobile Dealers Association of Greater Philadelphia. Since its start in 2008, this philanthropic program has distributed over 177,858 new coats to children who need them the most.

"The Thompson Organization is proud to have been a participant in the Driving Away the Cold program for the past five years," says John Thompson, Vice President of The Thompson Organization. "We are humbled to have the opportunity to touch the lives of the local children directly and to fulfill a need that many take for granted."

Thompson Pledges to Drive Away the Cold

 

Together, we are warming hearts...

The Thompson Organization is proud to participate in the 2014 Driving Away the Cold effort! As a participating dealer in this program, we have agreed to donate a brand new winter coat to a local child in need each time a vehicle is sold at our store this month. Driving Away the Cold is a philanthropic program started in January of 2008 by the Auto Dealers CARing for Kids Foundation, of which we are a member.  The program has one simple but very important mission-to provide new winter coats to underprivileged children living in the five-county region of Philadelphia. 

Since 2008, the Foundation, along with its Dealer Members, has distributed nearly 80,000 new coats to area children who need them the most. This year, the program hopes to distribute its 100,000th coat collectively. If you would like to learn more about the Auto Dealers CARing for Kids Foundation and the difference we are making in our communities, please visit www.caringforkids.com.  Spread the Warmth.

TWO BIG EVENTS | ONE HUGE WEEKEND
September 13th & 14th

Together, the Thompson Bucks County Classic and the Doylestown Arts Festival will draw over 30,000 spectators to the bustling streets of downtown Doylestown throughout the weekend. There will be something for everyone - a wide variety of artisans and crafters, music and food, as well as children's bike races and professional cycling events for biking enthusiasts. Plan your weekend accordingly- with so much to see and do, you won't want to miss a thing!

3rd Annual Thompson Bucks County Classic
Saturday morning the competition starts with the Doylestown to New Hope Road Race. This is the true European road race experience for spectators. From the start in Doylestown to the action on the Carversville Circuit and the new finish in New Hope, this stunningly beautiful race is fast becoming a world classic.

This year celebrates the 12th annual Thompson Criterium of Doylestown, a spectacular race that encircles the Arts Festival to the cheers of thousands of spectators. The day kicks off at 8:30am with the Cyclosportif 100K, a recreational ride throughout the spectacular terrain of Upper Bucks County. It may be "recreational," but this 62-mile course is designed for serious cyclists looking for a challenge and to share in a pro-racing atmosphere.

Our first-ever Professional Women's race begins at 10:30am followed at 12pm by the ever-popular children's races where kids get the thrill of a lifetime by sprinting up to the same finish line as the pros.

Then the Grand Finale of the weekend....the Thompson Criterium of Doylestown starting at 1pm. This will be true, professional cycling at its very best, don't miss it.

Jack Thompson Honored with Lifetime Achievement Award



On January 26, 2009 The American International Automobile Dealers Association (AIADA) today honored longtime member and past director John H. (Jack) Thompson of Doylestown, PA with the David F. Mungenast, Sr. Lifetime Achievement Award. The award, named after the late AIADA Chairman and legendary St. Louis-area automobile dealer, was presented during AIADA's 39th Annual Meeting and Luncheon held at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center in New Orleans.

"This year's award winner has claimed the respect of dealers and industry employees in all corners of the country," said AIADA President Cody Lusk. "Jack is remarkable not just for his unwavering commitment to protecting the livelihoods of international auto dealers, but also for his strength as a leader and reputation for generosity."

Thompson was one of the first Toyota dealers in the United States, opening for business in 1969. In 1989 he once again blazed a trail as one of the country's first Lexus dealers. He credits his success, and correspondingly high customer satisfaction and retention scores, to the philosophy that he is not in the car business, but the people business. In 1997 He won the Time Magazine Quality Dealer of the Year award and in 1998 the Sports Illustrated Dealer of Distinction.

Thompson's love of cars extends past the office. Over the years he has accumulated one of the largest vintage car collections in the country, focused primarily on vintage race cars and European models. Jack is a member of the Sport Car Club of America and has served as that organization's chief executive steward. Active in his community, Thompson has also served as a board member of the land preservation group Heritage Conservancy, the title sponsor of the Doylestown Arts Festival, and as a host of the once annual Susan G. Komen Drive for the Cure.

Today, Thompson owns and operates six dealerships in both Doylestown and Warrington, PA: Thompson Toyota, Thompson Lexus, and Thompson BMW in Doylestown and Porsche of Bucks County, Audi Warrington and Thompson Volkswagen in Warrington. He has been a member of AIADA since 1975.
