Steet Ponte Ford is a locally owned, family operated business that takes pride in our community. We take part in many local events throughout the year to help better our community, improve family and children's lives, educate local residents, and are just a great way to get together and have some fun!
  • Fire Truck Spectacular: The New Hartford Fire Department sponsors the Fire Truck Spectacular every year at the New Hartford ShoppingCenter. All local Fire Departments are invited to come with their best trucks. It's a great way for all local towns and cities to participate, get to know each other, and for local residents to learn about fire safety! Insurance Agents are always on hand to go over options, the smokehouse is always staffed to show children (and adults!) what to do in the event of a fire.


  • Halloween Costume Contest: Each year, everyone at our stores are encouraged to dress up for Halloween to have some fun! We hold a costume contest via Facebook: whoever's picture gets the most likes wins prizes! We give out 1st, 2nd, and 3rd prizes for costumes, and each year they get better and better!


  • Ugly Christmas Sweater Contest & Holiday Party: Each of our stores has a catered, holiday lunch party at the store. We close up shop for a bit, gather for a party and always enjoy catered food from our favorite local restaurants. At our parties, everyone is encouraged to wear their best Ugly Christmas Sweater (or costume.) Like our Halloween contest, pictures are posted on Facebook and the ones with the most likes wins!


New Hartford Memorial Day Parade: we love participating in the parade every year. It's a great way for all of us to get into the community, show off our cars, and end at the New Hartford Fire Department for refreshments and tours afterwards!


  • Children's Miracle Network Telethon: each year, we always volunteer our time to answer phones during the Children's Miracle Network Telethon. CMN is part of our local Hospitals, and they provide assistance to women and children's services. They are a huge part of our community, by helping premature babies stay local, provide medical assistance to mothers and children no matter what their financial status is, and even other services like speech and occupational therapies.
  • Steet Ponte Auto Group Golf Open: we hold our Annual Golf Tournament for employees and local vendors and businesses that we work with regularly at a local golf course each summer! It's a great way to relax on a Sunday and enjoy the good weather. Prizes are given to the winning team, and we have so many raffles that everyone always leaves with some kind of prize!

  • Steet Ponte Auto Group Company Picnic: Our Company Picnic has grown from 50 attendees at Enchanted Forest Water Safari, to over 500 over the course of the years since acquiring multiple different stores. We provide tickets for our employees and their immediate family members, and also provide extra tickets at a discounted rate. We have our own pavilion to leave items in throughout the day, a fantastic lunch is catered by Water Safari, and what better way to spend a summer day in Upstate New York than at Water Safari?!
