At Sarasota Ford, we believe that a strong community helps unite all of us and make us feel part of something greater than ourselves. And from our individual lives to our local economy, the stronger our community, the better our quality of life will be. We also realize that it takes a lot of work to build and maintain a strong community. From putting out fires in homes to educating the next generation in our classrooms, there are a countless number of heroes among us who are going above and beyond to shape our community today and advance it tomorrow.

We will never be able to thank them enough but with your help finding them, we are going to try to do our part to recognize their selfless efforts by treating some teachers, members of our military, veterans, police officers, firefighters, first responders, and others who are selfless servants for our community, to complimentary and unforgettable experiences.
