When Joe Ferezy, general manager of Galpin Subaru, called to let Evan Mendelzon know he’d won the dealership’s drawing for a new iPad, Mendelzon couldn’t believe he’d won.

“I never win anything,” said Mendelzon, a resident of Santa Clarita since 1980.

Mendelzon, an employee of Universal Studios, entered to win the iPad at the 27th annual SCV Community Expo held Sept. 17 and 18.

A long-time Galpin customer, Mendelzon said he figured he would enter the contest when he saw the dealer’s booth at the expo. But he didn’t expect to win, and getting the call from Ferezy was a surprise.

“It made my day,” Mendelzon said.

The dealership is also hosting a community event Saturday to celebrate its grand opening as a Subaru dealership.
“Everything is free,” Ferezy said. “There are activities for the whole family.”

Celebrating from noon to 5 p.m., the public event will have inflatable rides, carnival games, food and ice cream for the public at no charge.

But the icing on the cake might be the outdoor Go-Kart Track from MB2 Racing for the kids and display of customized vehicles and engines for the adults.

“We’re going to have the world’s fastest Subaru, the STI, here,” Ferezy said.

The dealership is also officially kicking off its latest addition, Subaru, with a ribbon-cutting ceremony at 2 p.m. The dealership also carries Mazda and Lincoln products.

Galpin Subaru is located at 23645 Creekside Drive, Santa Clarita at the corner of Valencia and Creekside Road.
