Lehman Donation to 5000 Role Models of Excellence

On Tuesday, September 29, 2021, Lehman Autoworld made a generous donation to local 5000 Role Models of Excellence.  We were proud to present a check for $35,000 to 5000 Role Models of Excellence.  William Lehman, Justin Dash, General Manager Tariq Siddiqui and other members of the Management team presented the check to Congresswoman Frederica Wilson.  The Lehman Subaru location in Miami Gardens, Florida hosted the check presentation.

Subaru Share the Love Event 2021

Because of Lehman’s commitment to the Subaru Share the Love Event, we made this donation.  Through this event,  Subaru of America Inc. and participating retailers have donated more than $200 million to charity.

5000 Role Models of Excellence

Lehman chose to donate to local Miami organization 5000 Role Models of Excellence. The 5000 Role Models of Excellence Project was founded by Congresswoman Wilson in 1993.  At the time, she was a member of the School Board of Miami-Dade County.

Most importantly, the project’s mission is to “intervene in the lives of at-risk boys… to provide them with alternatives that will lead them away from a life of crime and violence.” 

As part of their uniform, students and adult mentors wear the signature red necktie.  Throughout the program, the goal is to “teach young boys about healthy living, responsibility, respect, and attaining future goals.”
