At San Tan Ford we say “It’s all about you!” That doesn’t mean just in the showroom or the service bays. We take it out into our community. We like being part of the exciting growth and development of the East Valley. We’re proud to have built strong relationships with our friends and neighbors.
More than ever, our local schools and nonprofit organizations need our support in order to serve. We’re here to help. Just a couple of our efforts – a fund-raiser for sports team boosters, a golf tournament to raise money for the Gilbert School District, and a canned food drive.
We were honored to make a substantial donation to the 911 Memorial in Gilbert. And with deep respect for his sacrifice, we had the opportunity to help raise funds for slain Gilbert police Lt. Eric Shuhandler.
The Cardinals have a long and colorful history, going back to 1898. They started out as a neighborhood group that gathered to play football on Chicago’s South Side. After nearly a century of expansion, in 1988 they were welcomed to the Valley of the Sun.
Here in our East Valley neighborhood, San Tan Ford is excited to have a strong and on-going partnership with the Cardinals. Not only does it give us a chance to learn about the players and coaches, but we get to share that with our neighbors.
We’ve sponsored fan events with many Cardinals players. Seeing the youngest fans light up when they get to interact with their sports heroes – well, we wouldn’t miss it for the world. And even the grown-up fans have a great time when the Cardinals Cheerleaders are here!
All of us at San Tan Ford are committed to supporting education. Throughout the year we sponsor and host a variety of fun and fund-raising events.
In the fall of 2011 track teams from local schools will gather for the first-ever San Tan Ford Challenge. It’s a 12K challenge to raise money and awareness.
We partner with Ford Motor Company for their “Drive One 4 UR School” fundraisers. Students and parents have a chance to test-drive a new Ford Fusion. They get to learn about one of the leading safe, fun and eco-friendly new cars – from the driver’s seat. And, for every test drive, we donate $20 to their school.
As part of our strong partnership with the Gilbert Chamber of Commerce, we were the title sponsor for the inaugural Scholars Golf Tournament in 2010 and again in the spring of 2011. The tournament raised funds for provide scholarships for seven high school students in the Gilbert Public and Higley Unified School Districts.
