Rick Case Automotive Group Donates $50,000 to Feeding South Florida

 

Amidst the COVID-19 crisis, Rick Case Automotive Group is working harder than ever to support the South Florida community. On Saturday, March 21st, Ryan and Raquel Case met with Paco Velez, president and CEO of Feeding South Florida, to present him with a $50,000 check!


With so many essential items in short supply, low income communities and the nonprofits that serve them have taken a huge hit. The Case family is well-known for their years of partnership with charitable organizations, and in this time of uncertainty, Feeding South Florida struck a powerful chord. During the meeting with Velez, Raquel implored other local businesses to lend a helping hand: "Feeding South Florida is definitely an organization that we feel strongly about at this time. We would like anyone out there who has a business and is able to give back at this time, we strongly feel that this is one to donate to, because it is getting out there, getting food to the people right now at the time it is needed the most."  


Whether you're giving on behalf of a large business or as a private individual, know that your contribution can make a difference. If you would like to support Feeding South Florida at this time, online donations can be made here.

Below is the official statement from the American Heart Association regarding the upcoming Broward Heart Walk:

"As a science-based organization that cares deeply about the health of our communities, the American Heart Association has been closely following the guidance from the CDC and state and local health officials on the coronavirus (COVID-19). The safety of our guests has been and will continue to be our top priority.


We have decided that the best course for our guests is to postpone the Broward Heart Walk. The safety and health of our participants is our top concern and we feel this is not the right time for a large gathering. The good news is that we have already rescheduled the event for Sunday, May 10, 2020. 


We would like to thank our incredible team who have given so much time and energy to ensure our Broward Heart Walk guests have an amazing experience.


The funds we raise are critical to our urgent mission: to be a relentless force for a world of longer, healthier lives. Gifts will be used to fund lifesaving research, support health and education initiatives in our community, improve the quality of care in our hospitals, advocate for healthy policies and so much more.

 

We are sorry we won't be seeing you this weekend but look forward to seeing you on Sunday, May 10th!"

Rick Case Honda Powerhouse Hosts Biker Bash in Support Boys & Girls Club


 

On November 27th, 2019 Rick Case Honda Powerhouse hosted the Biker Bash Junior Leaguers event in support of the Boys and Girls Club of Broward County.

Rita Case Recognized as Outstanding Women's Leader by FCA


 

In a celebration of diversity, FCA has recognized Rick Case Automotive Group's Rita Case as an outstanding leader among their dealerships! 


As the Chief Operating Officer and President of the Rick Case Automotive Group, Rita is a shining example of how Rick Case stands out from the competition. It's worth noting that this is not the first time Rita has been honored in such a way. The FCA cites her many accomplishments across her career: 'the "National Dealers of the Year" by USA Today; Ernst and Young "Entrepreneur of the Year" and Automotive News "Top 100 Leading Women in the Automotive Industry" Award. Recently, she was inducted into Nova Southeastern University's H. Wayne Huizenga College of Business and Entrepreneurship 2019 class of the Business Hall of Fame. She is one of only 3 other women in its 30 years history to receive this prestigious honor.'


The heart of Rita's work ethic is charity. She's used her business savvy to give back to her local community in profound ways. Throughout her career, she's raised over $50 million for nonprofits across South Florida, Atlanta, and Cleveland. She's a founding member of the Rick Case Bikes for Kids Program, which is celebrating its 38th anniversary this holiday season. Earlier this year, she and daughter Raquel Case were proud participants in Habitat for Humanity's Women Build. One might think all of this sounds overwhelming. Surely she's ready to retire! To that, Rita would happily say that she's just getting started.

Rick Case Bikes for Kids Program Celebrates 38th Anniversary

The Rick Case Bikes for Kids program, founded by Rick and Rita Case in 1982, has provided more than 100,000 bikes to children in need during the holiday season.

This year's collection goal is set at 5,000 bikes, which will be distributed to Boys & Girls Clubs as well as other local charities, churches, and schools.

For any child who has experienced poverty, the holidays can be a discouraging time.

"The communities really come together to make sure underprivileged children have the best holiday season possible."

Rick Case Automotive Group Hosts Soles4Souls Event

 

Many children start the new school year with a worn-out pair of shoes that won't make it through the first few months. Often times, their families do not have sufficient funds to replace them. Aiming to break this cycle of poverty, Soles4Souls seeks to distribute shoes to those in need all around the world. Today, they visited South Florida. 


Skechers, Shoe Carnival, and Soles4Souls partnered with the Boys and Girls Club to donate almost 5,000 pairs of BOBS from Skechers to the children of Broward County. The children received a brand new pair of shoes that they could decorate and customize themselves. The event was held at the Rick and Rita Case Club in Davie. 


"With 12 clubs and over 13,000 kids here in the county that we're serving, this was a great location [...] to be highlighted for the shoe carnival," said Rita Case.


As proud, longtime sponsors of the Boys and Girls Club, Rick and Rita Case were both in attendance to celebrate with the children.   


The heart of the event was building up and protecting the children of the Broward County community. These clubs and events provide a safe environment for children to learn and grow and they alleviate the worries of their families. "These clubs are so important to these kids," Rick Case said. "They keep them off the street, away from crime, away from drugs."

One NSU Student to Receive a One-Year Lease on a Vehicle Raffle From Rick Case Automotive Group During Sharkapalooza Event

Class is back in session at Nova Southeastern University! They're kicking off the Fall semester with Sharkapalooza, a yearly celebration where students can win prizes, grab a bite to eat, and get connected with campus clubs and organizations. At the center of all the excitement, Rick Case Automotive Group is delivering the most coveted prize of the whole event!

In their continued partnership with NSU, Rick Case Automotive Group will be raffling off a one-year lease on a Volkswagen Jetta, Hyundai Elantra, Kia Forte, or a Honda Civic to be selected by one lucky student! Rick Case representative Stan Bostic will be present to announce the winner.

Pictured above is last year's winner, Maria, with her Volkswagen Jetta.

Rick Case Automotive Group strives to meet community needs in any way they can, and they are proud to participate in Sharkapalooza for the fifth year in a row. Many students commute to school and work. A reliable, brand new sedan makes it that much easier to balance their hectic schedules and help them get where they need to go.

Sharkapalooza will be held on Friday, August 23rd, from 6:00pm to 9:00pm at the Rick Case Arena at the Don Taft University Center. Students must be present at the time of drawing.
