Winner of the Nissan 300Z sports coupe lease
After several months of eyeing the cherryred Nissan 300Z sports coupe in the lobby of the Venice Y, Andy Mayfield decided he needed to buy a chance ticket for the car’s three-year lease. “I thought, ‘You know what? That car was meant for me.’,” Mayfield said. He was right. Mayfield, an Englewood resident, cleared out his garage in March to make room for his new ride. His longest commute so far has been from Englewood the to Venice Y several times a week, but Mayfield has plans for a long drive over the Sunshine Skyway to go to a Tampa Bay Rays game.
Mayfield said he was also drawn to the car because it helped raise money for the Y’s Children & Families Scholarship Fund. (The car was donated in part by Venice Nissan. )
The former Rochester, NY-area banker was a board member at his local Y before moving to Florida. “I’ve always been drawn to the Y. You get a real sense of community at the Y. It’s not just some club,” he said.
