Dan Marino Foundation Chosen As a Hometown Charity for Subaru’s “Share the Love” Campaign
North Fort Lauderdale Subaru raised over $35,000 for the nonprofit organization in 2021
After a successful fundraising effort in 2021, the Dan Marino Foundation was again selected as a North Fort Lauderdale Subaru Hometown Charity for the “Share the Love” Event. From Nov. 17, 2022, until Jan. 3, 2023, North Fort Lauderdale Subaru will donate a minimum of $50 for every new Subaru leased or sold and an additional $5 for every routine service visit to the selected Hometown Charities. North Fort Lauderdale Subaru also donated a wall wrap to the Dan Marino Foundation’s Tech and Driving Simulator Center highlighting the partnership between Subaru and the Foundation.
“The Foundation appreciates North Fort Lauderdale Subaru for their support and the positive impact they are making throughout the community,” Mary Partin says, CEO of the Dan Marino Foundation. “Subaru’s ‘Share the Love’ campaign provides dollars for services that benefit individuals with autism, but as important has been their involvement, spending time with young people at the Foundation.”
Subaru’s “Share the Love” event has been fundraising for local nonprofits around the U.S. for over 20 years. Subaru of America and the Subaru of America Foundation have donated more than $270 million, and its employees have logged nearly 78,000 volunteer hours.
“North Fort Lauderdale Subaru is thrilled to continue our support of the Dan Marino Foundation as part of Subaru’s ‘Share the Love’ Event,” Wael Ghali says, Managing Partner of North Fort Lauderdale Subaru. “I personally commend their commitment to helping provide children, teens, and adults with autism equal access to education, advance them through their adulthood and graduate them to the workplace. It’s important to come together and invest to better our community. We will do our best to bring more awareness to the growing number of autism cases. As the Managing Partner of North Fort Lauderdale Subaru, I promise to always use my resources to make a positive difference in our community,”
The Dan Marino Foundation was founded by Dan and Claire Marino shortly after their son, Michael, was diagnosed with autism in 1992. The Foundation has raised more than $91 million to create and support unique and impactful initiatives, including the Nicklaus Children’s Hospital Dan Marino Outpatient Center, the Marino Autism Research Institute, Marino Adapted Aquatics, and the Marino Campus accredited postsecondary school.
