The Sanderson Lincoln Pavilion is the center of all of Carefree's Downtown activities and events located within the heart of the Desert Gardens. In 2013, Sanderson Lincoln generously gifted the Town funds for a large capital improvement project for what was then called the Amphitheater.
The Council voted unanimously for Mayor David Schwan to sign the Letter of Intent provided by the Sanderson Lincoln car dealership, located in Phoenix at 2121 W. Bell Road, to accept funding of $250,000 for the capital improvement project which provided additional shade sails, lighting, and a sound system to the amphitheater in the Carefree Desert Gardens. The amphitheater will henceforth be known as the Sanderson Lincoln Pavilion.
Patrick Heigl, Sales Manager said, "We are humbled and grateful just to be thought of for naming rights of the Pavilion, a great vision, we believe, to be able to add to the beautiful grounds and the great aesthetics you have here in Carefree." Sanderson Lincoln has participated in several events in the community, and they consider it a home-away-from-home, saying that folks have embraced them, which they really appreciate.
