About the Mercedes-Benz Dealer Championships Program

The Mercedes-Benz Dealer Championships is a grassroots program hosting amateur golf and tennis events across the United States each year, with Mercedes-Benz owners and prospects from Mercedes-Benz dealers' communities participating. These events give dealers the opportunity to engage with customers via popular lifestyle activities.

Now in its 19th year, the Mercedes-Benz Dealer Championships tennis event will produce a two-winner dealer teams that will represent Silver Star Motors at the Mercedes-Benz Eastern Sectional at Turtle Bay Resort in Oahu, Hawaii!

At each Sectional Tournament, tennis participants will play in a combination of matches, contests and skills competitions. The winning tennis team from each Sectional will receive a VIP trip to the 2013 US Open in New York, including access to various matches and an exclusive "Behind the Scenes" tour of the National Tennis Center.

Among the most meaningful aspects of the Mercedes-Benz Dealer Championships is its charitable component. Since its inception, the program has raised over $14 million for charity. These funds support many worthwhile charitable organizations, many located within the host dealers' community.
