AutoNation, Inc., America's largest automotive retailer, on Dec. 8 presented a $62,000 check to Moffitt Cancer Center at Mercedes-Benz of Sarasota.

Funds were raised through AutoNation's cash register charity program, the support of the community and associates at AutoNation stores in Tampa, St. Petersburg and Sarasota.


With a donation program in place at all point of purchase terminals, customers make donations to the charity by adding an amount to their credit card, 100% of which goes directly to the charity.


"AutoNation customers and associates have been generous in raising funds to drive out cancer," said Patrick Terhaar, market president for AutoNation's Tampa Bay, Illinois and Minnesota markets. "We are so proud to support the critical work of Moffitt Cancer Center. We were honored to be the presenting sponsor of Miles for Moffitt for the eighth consecutive year. This year the race was held virtually and as a united community, we raised $62,000!"


AutoNation has a long track record of supporting communities, most notably through its DRV PNK Mission, which has raised almost $26 million to support cancer research and treatment.
