Braman Hyundai Supports Florida’s Teachers


If we’ve learned one thing over the last couple years, it’s that teachers are gifts. They sacrifice so much for our communities and our children, yet they rarely get the respect they deserve for their unwavering dedication, commitment and, above all, patience.

Words of admiration only do so much, though. Last month, Braman Hyundai was given the opportunity to physically recognize and honor one of Miami’s most beloved educators with a Hyundai.

During class, Loraine, a teacher at Suzy Fischer Early Childhood Academy in Miami, was notified that her vehicle had caught fire in the parking lot. Unsalvageable, her charred vehicle was hauled away, and Loraine was distraught.

“I’m traumatized still from watching the fire,” she said. “It’s just unbelievable.”

Staff and parents at Loraine’s school raised over $17,000 to replace her vehicle and sought our Miami Hyundai dealership to help facilitate that purchase.

When we heard of Loraine’s struggles and bad luck, we had to act. Within 24 hours, we were not only able to get her the keys to a Hyundai Tucson, but we also purchased one year of auto insurance on her behalf.

“This is the most beautiful experience I’ve had in many, many months,” said our very own General Sales Manager, Pedro Roman. “Every time our company has the chance to be able to help, especially teachers – not a lot of people understand how important [our teachers are to us].”

Loraine, overcome with emotion, couldn’t help but express her gratitude for the surprise gift. “This is the love of all of you, everyone at the school and the community,” she said. “This makes my heart glow inside. I am so deeply moved and touched, just a very spiritual experience.”

To Loraine and teachers everywhere across the country and around the world, we sincerely thank you for everything you do!
