Charity Spotlight: Military Assistance Mission

Military Assistance Mission


It’s a beautiful thing when a community is willing to come together to support one another, especially for those families who know the trials and stresses that come with military life. The Military Assistance Mission is an Arizona charity that was developed in order to support local active-duty military and their families, as well as Arizona’s wounded warriors.


Military Assistance Mission is built with a community that wants to give back as much as possible to those who have given to and sacrificed for our country. With that in mind, it’s been an honor for Sanderson Ford to partner with Military Assistance Mission in the past, doing our part to contribute to their honorable mission. At Sanderson Ford, community involvement is a priority and our wish is to do everything we can do to create a strong, unified city and state. We feel tremendously supported by our neighbors near and far, and seek to give back wherever we can, from partnering with the Military Assistance Mission to working with the Southwest Autism Research & Resource Center and St. Mary’s Food Bank Alliance.


Recently, Sanderson Ford was able to partner with Roush Performance in order to auction off the “Jack Roush Tribute” Mustang. This special Mustang ended up selling for $175,000, and all of those proceeds went straight to Military Assistance Mission who used it to support the local military families.


We look forward to the next opportunity for a partnership with the Military Assistance Mission, especially knowing that their continuous efforts are making a huge difference in the Arizona community.


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!

Sanderson Ford’s 21st Annual All Ford Show

That’s right, it’s back! The 21st annual All Ford Show is returning to our Glendale, AZ dealership this October. Just like last year, we anticipate bringing over 200 show cars from around the city, state and nation to our dealership on October 5th.

Sanderson Ford’s 21st Annual All Ford Show

Since Sanderson Ford’s All Ford Show is known to bring in thousands of spectators from all over, the dealership decided to make this year’s event a charitable one. With your donation, Sanderson Ford will be supporting four important local valley programs:

  • Military Assistance Mission AZ- to assist local military families in crisis
  • Ronald McDonald House AZ- to assist families seeking medical attention for their children with temporary living arrangements
  • Southwest Autism Research and Resource Center (SARRC)- to assist families and individuals with autism
  • St. Mary’s Food Bank- helping those less fortunate in the community

Sanderson Ford is asking their supportive vendors for a $500 cash donation to the All Ford Show charity. All vendors donating to the cause will be featured on the 2013 All Ford Show’s event t-shirt and program with a booth display and banner at the event as well.

With your donation, we hope to donate $20,000 to the four charities this year. Sanderson Ford will be providing all facilities, trophies, t-shirts, prizes and entertainment at the show, so all you have to do is show up and smile.

Please help us raise money for these deserving charities this year. Donations are due by September 13, 2013. For more information, contact Dave Tedder at (623) 842-8600 or DaveTedder@SandersonFord.com.

We hope to see you at the show!
