HOLLYWOOD, Fla., June 12, 2019 (Newswire.com) - Together with his children, Zachary and Brittany, Craig Zinn, Founder and CEO at the Craig Zinn Automotive Group, South Florida’s premier auto group, presented the Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital with a $159,045 donation check that will go towards funding the Hospital’s expansion project, which will allow the Hospital to serve many more children for years to come. The funds represent the proceeds from the fifth annual Share the Love event held by Subaru of Pembroke Pines.
Craig Zinn, who owns and operates Subaru of Pembroke Pines, Florida’s #1 Volume Subaru Store, according to Subaru of America’s Sales Data 2018, chose the Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital as their official Hometown Charity, donating $250.00 for every new Subaru vehicle purchased or leased from November 15, 2018, to January 2, 2019.
“As I look at the children walking by and know that the money we are giving is going to provide them with immediate services feels incredible. We are committed to our community; it is our responsibility to be not just a good businessman, but to be a good corporate citizen,” said Craig Zinn, founder, and CEO at the Craig Zinn Automotive Group.
Community investment is the foundation of how the Craig Zinn Automotive Group operates. So much so that community leaders came together to acknowledge Craig Zinn for his ongoing humanitarian contributions. City of Pembroke Pines, Mayor, Frank Ortis, along with Vice Mayor Jay Schwartz, and Commissioner Angelo Castillo recognized Mr. Zinn by presenting him with the Key to the City of Pembroke Pines. Broward County Commissioner, Dr. Barbara Sharief’s office, presented a Proclamation on behalf of the Broward County Mayor, and Board of Commissioner declaring June 10 as “Subaru of Pembroke Pines Day” in Broward County. U.S. Congresswoman, Debbie Wasserman Schultz issued a Congressional Congratulatory Letter of special recognition to Mr. Zinn for his outstanding and dedicated service to the South Florida Community.

Their generosity supports our mission to provide exceptional quality of care in a loving and caring environment to the children and families in our community.
