Ferrari has raised $750,000 for Save the Children’s education programs in the United States, including the winning bid for a Ferrari Roma recently auctioned online. The news was shared during a virtual gala, “Kid Strong Together,” and is the culmination of the philanthropic initiative joined by Maroon 5’s front-man Adam Levine and his wife, Behati Prinsloo.
The Prancing Horse says it chose Save the Children for their impact on children and caregivers across the U.S. By offering free learning resources and support, Save the Children is combating the widespread learning loss from COVID-19. Since March, the organization has reached more than 700,000 kids in over 200 rural communities.
“This has been a time when supporting children, and looking to the future, have been focal points for many of us,” says Matteo Torre, President, Ferrari North America. Investing in that future through this contribution to Save the Children is timely and fitting, offering one of the first Ferrari Romas to arrive in the market,” he concludes.
“Behati and I are honored to have this opportunity to support Save the Children, and to have contributed awareness to help drive this winning result with Ferrari,” says Adam Levine.
The Roma embodies “La Nuova Dolce Vita,” taking its design inspiration from the concept of sporty elegance celebrated in the legendary grand touring Ferraris of the 1960s. Powered by a twin-turbo V8, the Roma produces 612 horsepower, making it the most powerful front-drive V8 in Ferrari’s history. The Italian automaker says the Roma’s performance is matched by its daily drivability and comfort. We’ll see for ourselves when we have an opportunity to drive one in the next couple months.
