Since 1895, the Ferman organization has been giving back to the community it serves through a significant investment of volunteer resources and charitable giving. Ferman Mazda of Brandon continues to embrace this long standing tradition of making a difference in the communities where live and conduct business through the provision of resources to large non-profit organizations as well as localized neighborhood efforts. Some of the charities and non-profit organizations we are proud to support include: United Way, Red Cross, Boys & Girls Clubs, Metropolitan Ministries, local Little League teams and community hospital foundations.
True courage knows no obstacles. Ferman supports your courage and is proud to be a sponsor of the 2020 Miles for Moffitt Virtual Event. Visit Miles for Moffitt to learn more & support cancer research at Moffitt Cancer Center.
For the 13th year running, Ferman Automotive is the Official Automotive Sponsor of the 2018 Gasparilla Distance Classic.
For this year’s events, Ferman Mazda-Brandon showcased a show-stopping Mazda CX-5 (pictured below), Mazda CX-9 and Mazda3. Visitors to the Ferman booths at Jr. Gasparilla Distance Classic and Gasparilla Health and Fitness Expo got to check out these luxurious vehicles and enjoy complimentary giveaway items.
The Gasparilla Distance Classic has become one of the premier races in the country, but more than just an event for runners, the Gasparilla Distance Classic is also a positive community event. The race is a charity fundraiser, helping distinguished organizations like Boys & Girls Clubs of Tampa Bay, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Tampa Bay, Metropolitan Ministries and St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. Local high school and university athletic programs have also benefited from the Gasparilla Distance Classic’s generosity, such as Plant High School and the University of Tampa.
This year’s lucky winner was Allyson from Tampa who got to attend this fun, local event with three of her friends.
Thank you to everyone who participated in this year’s Gasparilla Distance Classic events. We hope to see you again next year!
