FT. LAUDERDALE, Fla. – As part of its Ford Will Surprise You initiative, South Florida Ford joined forces with Dan Marino, NFL Hall of Famer, former Miami Dolphins quarterback and South Florida Ford Brand Ambassador to make an unexpected donation to a youth football program. The surprise began when Dan and a fleet of Ford vehicles arrived at a practice session with special gifts from South Florida Ford, including footballs, practice jerseys, a blocking sled as well as a check for $10,000 presented to Miami Xtreme Youth Football League.

Receiving the check on behalf of Miami Xtreme Youth Football League was Coach Butch, who has coached pop warner football for more than 38 years. Through his many volunteer hours, Coach Butch teaches his players about football, while also incorporating important life lessons.

The Ford Will Surprise You initiative is the auto company’s marketing campaign that includes TV, radio and print advertisements featuring Marino. As the Brand Ambassador for South Florida Ford, Marino will also make personal appearances at various South Florida Ford dealerships and community events.
