Community Involvement

At Mercedes-Benz of Florence, we take great pride in our community and enjoy giving back to help those in need and supporting those around us through diverse charities throughout the South. Since 1986, we have had the privilege to work with so many outstanding charities in Georgia, Alabama, Tennesee, and SC that have made substantial contributions to the community. We hope to add to these efforts every year, with each one of our local charity events.

Five Star Celebrity Classic

Since its inception in 1989, this charity event has been a huge success, consisting of a celebrity golf tournament that has attracted such names as Hank Aaron, Franco Harris, Darius Rucker, and, local sports icons Kevin Brown, Russell Henley, and Jaime Kaplan. Every year hundreds of items are up for bid during the silent and live auction. In all, the Celebrity Classic has netted over $7 million dollars to benefit the Rescue Mission of Middle Georgia, Macon Volunteer Clinic, and The Fellowship of Christian Athletes.

Five Star Stadium at Mercer University

BRING YOUR ROAR when you visit Five Star Stadium. If you have never been to a Mercer Bears Football or Lacrosse game, it’s about time you did. You can smell the excitement in the air as both teams play at a high level during each and every game. This enthusiasm can be felt all over Mercer University with their extreme commitment to the community, and dedication to the education of their students. With many of our family members having played sports and graduated from Mercer, we have gotten the first-hand experience at the university and are very proud to wear orange and black. We hope you will do the same when you join us at Five Star Stadium.
Mercedes-Benz of Florence is so proud to be a part of this community, and because of this, we want to continue to give back to the place that has given us so much. If you have the time, we would appreciate your support and would enjoy seeing you at all of our charity events. Lacrosse and football season is about to begin, and The Five Star Celebrity Classic is being held September 28th & 29th this year.
