In keeping with the long-time pledge of community outreach, Dimmitt associates recently worked with the Kind Mouse, to help local families in need of assistance after career loss.
Following a successful food drive for the Kind Mouse, a team of Dimmitt associates volunteered their time to help the Kind Mouse distribute donated items. The Dimmitt team helped to sort, pack, and deliver meals to local schools. These efforts reflect Dimmitt Automotive Group’s steadfast commitment to support the fight against hunger in the surrounding community.
The Kind Mouse works to assist families in the area who are experiencing a change following the loss of a job. The Kind Mouse is founded on the belief that “no hardworking individual should ever feel despair due to economic hardships beyond their control. Everyone has a right to feel safe and secure in their own homes, and no one should ever go hungry.”
The Dimmitt team members volunteered through the company’s Community Values Day, a day set aside for team members to represent Dimmitt through outreach in their local communities. These opportunities enable Dimmitt employees to invest in their community, and help uphold Dimmitt’s commitment to community service.
Dimmitt Automotive Group is committed to serving the local community through numerous outreach opportunities throughout the year. Dimmitt would like to thank the Kind Mouse for the work they do in the area.

On October 16th and 17th, golfers took to the course at the Belleview Biltmore Golf Club in Belleair, Florida for the annual Friends of Raymond James Golf Tournament. Dimmitt Automotive Group is delighted to be apart of this great event. We support Friends of Raymond James and encourage everyone to get involved with this charity.
Friends of Raymond James has been assisting Raymond James associates in coping with unexpected hardships for nearly two decades – from helping with unforeseen medical expenses to covering housing costs after the sudden death of a spouse. Because our nonprofit organization is not affiliated with Raymond James or any of its subsidiaries, we rely on the generosity of private donors to help us provide relief for associates in need.
In 2014, we assisted 30 individuals with contributions totaling over $145,000. Since we began our fundraising efforts in 1997, we have disbursed in excess of $800,000 to over 200 associates.
We would like to thank to thank Friends of Raymond James for all that they do. To learn how you can get involved, visit their website at: http://www.friendsofraymondjames.org/

About Dream Ride
Founded in 2001, “Dream Ride” started as just that––a dream from Michael A. Bozzuto, CEO of Bozzuto’s Inc. It began as an optimistic vision to help people with intellectual disabilities living in our communities. Fourteen years later––thanks to the passion, hope and dedication of his entire company and the community––“The Dream Ride Experience” has evolved into the largest philanthropic endeavor sponsored by Bozzuto’s Inc. and The Hometown Foundation, Inc.
The Dream Ride Experience is a culmination of years’ worth of fundraising events, activities and outreach. It is an event to celebrate the achievements of Special Olympics athletes and to honor these outstanding men, women and children living with intellectual disabilities in our communities.
Spanning twelve states along the Eastern Seaboard and three countries, “The Dream Ride Experience” has become one of the most exciting and highly anticipated events for engine enthusiasts, Special Olympians and passionate participants. Currently, over $3,365,000 has been raised for Special Olympics programs in multiple states, with over 100% of the proceeds directly benefiting the charity.
Our mission is clear: Using Special Olympics as our cause, raise the awareness and much-needed funds for people living with intellectual disabilities while inspiring our communities to overcome diversity, with all the achievements and accomplishments of Special Olympics athletes’ serving as an example.
