Having been a cornerstone in the Philadelphia area for the last three decades, Gary Barbera knows and understands the importance of giving support back to the community. Owner of Barbera’s Autoland, and a noted philanthropist, Mr. Barbera enjoys spending his time helping and contributing to charitable organizations that assist children and families in need. In addition, Mr. Barbera supports local athletes as they progress in their careers so they can increase exposure and find success as professionals.
In 2012, Gary Barbera embraced the “No Mercy” Caged Fighting Championship (CFFC) main event at the Borgatta Hotel & Casino in Atlantic City, New Jersey. The main event featured a bout between two welterweight fighters: George Sullivan of Bellmawr, NJ and Greg Soto of Oakhurst, NJ. The two fighters put on a memorable show for the crowd, and Sullivan was able to land a knockout at 2:09 in the first round after a flurry of punches. Mr. Barbera and his organization, Gary Barbera Cares, sponsored the event as a caring partner, and it has been active in the promotion of events in the community for more than two decades.
Following Sullivan’s victory, the champ posed for photos with Gary Barbera. Most of the fighters in CFFC matches are from the Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and New York areas, the same communities that Mr. Barbera supports on a daily basis. In addition to the live event in Atlantic City, the Sullivan-Soto fight also aired locally in Philadelphia. Learn more about Gary Barbera and the Gary Barbera Cares program by calling (610) 525-7827.
