Dan Marino Foundation Selected as Hometown Charity by North Fort Lauderdale Subaru

The nonprofit organization creates and supports unique and impactful initiatives to help people with autism.

For the “Share the Love” fundraising event, North Fort Lauderdale Subaru has again chosen the Dan Marino Foundation as one of its Hometown Charities. Since 2021, the foundation has received $70,000 from North Fort Lauderdale Subaru as a beneficiary of the annual event. From Nov. 16, 2023, until Jan. 2, 2024, the car dealership will donate a minimum of $50 for every new Subaru leased or sold, as well as an additional $5 for every routine service visit, to the selected Hometown Charities, including the Dan Marino Foundation.

“It’s inspiring how North Fort Lauderdale Subaru includes in their primary goals the wellbeing of the overall community, and specifically through the “Share the Love” Event to supporting individuals with autism through the Dan Marino Foundation,” Mary Partin says, CEO of the Dan Marino Foundation. “It creates a ripple effect of positive change.” 

During the past 15 years, Subaru of America, Inc. and participating retailers have donated over $256 million through the Share the Love Event. Customers have been given the option to choose between four national charities and more than 2,100 hometown charities.

“We at North Fort Lauderdale Subaru are honored to continue our partnership with the Dan Marino Foundation through Subaru’s ‘Share the Love’ Event,” Wael Ghali says, Managing Partner of North Fort Lauderdale Subaru. “We are committed to promoting equal access to education for individuals with autism and supporting them as they transition into adulthood and the workforce. It is our privilege to invest in our community and raise awareness for the increasing number of autism cases. Together, we can make a difference and create a more inclusive society for all. As the Managing Partner of North Fort Lauderdale Subaru, I am proud to stand behind our commitment to making a positive difference in our community. It is an honor to support the Dan Marino Foundation and their mission to provide equal opportunities for individuals with autism. Together, we can create a more inclusive and supportive society for all. Thank you to our valued customers for joining us in this endeavor through Subaru’s ‘Share the Love’ event.” 

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 over $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.

Limsky, an avid traveler, swimmer and film buff who holds a law degree and Ph.D. from New York University, likes to say, “I’m a doctor, but I can’t operate—except on your brand.” He wrote his dissertation on the nonfiction work of Joan Didion. Prior to that, Limsky received his B.A. in English, summa cum laude, from Emory University and earned his M.A. in literature at American University in connection with a Masters Scholar Award fellowship.

Limsky came to SFBW at the apex of a storied career in journalism and publishing that includes six previous lead editorial roles, including for some of the world’s best-known brands. He served as global editor-in-chief of Lexus magazine, founding editor-in-chief of custom lifestyle magazines for Cadillac and Holland America Line, and was the founding editor-in-chief of Modern Luxury Interiors South Florida. He also was the executive editor for B2B magazines for Acura and Honda Financial Services, and he served as travel editor for Conde Nast. Magazines under Limsky’s editorship have garnered more than 75 industry awards.

He has also written for many of the country’s top newspapers and magazines, including The New York Times, Washington Post, Los Angeles Times, Miami Herald, Boston Globe, USA Today, Worth, Robb Report, Afar, Time Out New York, National Geographic Traveler, Men’s Journal, Ritz-Carlton, Elite Traveler, Florida Design, Metropolis and Architectural Digest Mexico.
