THE FT LAUDERDALE
INTERNATIONAL AUTO SHOW
Before the Broward County Convention Center opened in 1990, the late auto dealer Rick Case got the rights to put on the Fort Lauderdale International Auto Show at the center as a fundraiser for the Boys and Girls Club of Broward County. As the show gained popularity, increasing in size each year, Rick Case realized that he needed help producing the show.
Encouraging other auto dealers in the South Florida community to participate, Rick Case was able to secure the full support of the South Florida Automobile Dealers Association (SFADA). The executive leadership and auto show experience of the SFADA proved a valuable resource in the early years of the show, creating a popular, must-see event whose ticket sales would benefit a deserving organization.
“We give our customers a firsthand chance to see the wonderful new cars, trucks and motorcycles from around the world” said Rick Case, “and just as important, we also make a difference in the lives of many children in our local community through the efforts of programs like the Boys and Girls Club of Broward County – It’s always been a perfect match.”
The Fort Lauderdale International Auto Show, in partnership with the South Florida Auto Dealers Association, has helped to raise more than $5 million for the Boys and Girls Clubs of Broward County.
SOUTH FLORIDA AUTOMOBILE
The South Florida Automobile Dealers Association began in 1933 and originally was formed to share marketing opportunities and control costs. Today, the Association comprises more than 190 dealerships in Miami-Dade, Broward, Palm Beach and Monroe counties making it larger than some state-wide auto dealer groups. For more than 40 years, the Association has donated over $7 million to numerous charities that also include Joe DiMaggio Hospital, YMCA, Alzheimer’s Association Sheridan House, Museum of Art, American Cancer Society, Historic Society of Fort Lauderdale, and others.
Proud to present the 31st annual Fort Lauderdale International Auto Show that benefits the Boys and Girls Club of Broward and the annual Miami International Auto Show at the Miami Beach Convention Center.
