Sanderson Ford and Roush Performance Team Up To Raise Money For Military Assistance Mission

Sanderson Ford is at it again and this time, they are teaming up with Roush Performance for a double dose of American muscle in the form of the “Jack Roush Tribute” Mustang.  To be sold at the Barret-Jackson Auction, this Mustang has a very special purpose.

With the final auction price totaling to $175,000, not only will the proud owner have the 50th Anniversary Mustang AND the 30th Anniversary of Jack Roush’s Champion Motorcraft Mustang all in one, but 100% of the proceeds will be going to benefit the Military Assistance Mission (MAM).  MAM is an organization that “serves local Arizona military, their families, and wounded heroes with financial and morale aide”, as stated by the MAM CEO, Margy Bons.

Margy Bons started MAM in honor of her son, Michael Adam Marzano, who fought and died for our country in Iraq.

The 2015 Ford Mustang was donated by Sanderson Ford and made into what it is by the Roush Performance team.  With a Phase 2 Roush-charged 5.0-liter V8 power plant that boasts an incredible 727hp, courtesy of Roush Performance’s R2300 TVS supercharger, this Mustang has more horsepower per liter than any other American muscle care on the market.

And the fun doesn’t stop there!  The white exterior keeps it classy while the red interior gives it a dangerous feel.  Want to not only be the envy of all of your friends, but also help a great cause?  You’ve come to the right place!

Peoria, Arizona

Peoria, Arizona is home to a wonderful community that thrives outside of Phoenix. The city boasts a population of more than 154,000 and has a number of interesting things to do and see. The history behind the now-thriving area has a major significance in the area. Paying a visit to Peoria isn’t something many regret, especially after they’ve stopped by one of the local hotspots!

The city’s roots lie with four families who relocated to the area from Peoria, Illinois. The new arrivals were quick to file a plot map, complete with streets. Their efforts brought the Santa, Prescott, and Phoenix Railroad which gave the city’s popularity a boost as a popular stop.

There are dozens of museums oriented around space but the Challenger Space Center offers a unique look at what lies above us. The learning environment is perfect for families and adults alike. Activities include simulated space flight missions where visitors can take on the role of mission control, flight crews, and more.

There are few better places to grab a steak than Firebirds Wood Fired Grille. This premier restaurant is a local favorite due to its friendly atmosphere, helpful staff, and delicious food that brings return visitors time and time again.

We here at Sanderson Ford hope to see you around Peoria sometime soon!

Win a Mustang in Dylan’s Race for Recovery

This past summer on July 24th, 2016, a tragic accident occurred in which seven-year-old Dylan was thrown off a motor boat during his summer vacation and sustained injuries to his jaw, right arm, and right leg. Sanderson Ford has come together with the community to raise money for Dylan’s recovery through the Race for Recovery event. If you want to help, all you have to do is donate – and instantly be enrolled in a raffle to win a 2016 Stage 3 Roush Mustang.

You can enter the Race for Recovery during normal business hours at Sanderson Ford or attend any local car show events listed on the Dylan’s Recovery website before November 13th. 100% of the proceeds will go towards Dylan’s hospital expenses. If you donate $10, you will receive 1 raffle ticket, but you can also donate $50 for 6 tickets or $100 for 13 tickets. The drawing will happen on Monday, November 14th.

The 2016 Stage 3 Roush Mustang has an MSRP of $69,215, so enter for your chance to win this beautiful sports car. Of course, no matter who wins, you will still be donating to a worthy cause – the wellbeing and future of Dylan and his family.

Sanderson Ford Wins 10th Consecutive President’s Award for Phoenix Region

Here at Sanderson Ford, we’ve gotten used to a certain high standard in our work—and hopefully that has been reflected in our customer service over the years. Actually, we don’t have to rely on hope.

Sanderson Ford Helps Collect Water for the Salvation Army

As you might remember, we teamed up with 11 other Ford dealerships and Big Surf Waterpark to help collect water for the Salvation Army in order to support the Extreme Heat Hydration Program.  As a result, more than 40,500 bottles of water were collected at the various Ford dealerships around the area.

“The Salvation Army is grateful to the Metro Phoenix Ford dealers for their support of our Hydrate Arizona campaign.  As temperatures continue to rise, clean drinking water becomes a life and death issue.  Thanks to the partnership with Ford Motor Company, we are able to provide relief to hundreds of men and women exposed to extreme conditions,” said Major John Brackenbury of the Salvation Army.

Sanderson Ford collected more bottles of water than any other Ford dealership in the area with a grand total of 18,000 bottles.

“This is our second year hosting a bottled water drive in conjunction with Big Surf and the Salvation Army and we exceeded last year’s total by more than 9,000 bottles,” said Steve Papanikolas, the Phoenix Regional Manager for Ford.

We are so proud of the amount of bottles of water we were able to collect for the Salvation Army and we just want to say a huge thank you to everyone that donated and helped to make this possible!
