I got a notice through our PCA Region that there would be an event in nearby Lake Mary, FL this Saturday, February 9 – the 15th Annual Cars for the Cure to benefit the American Lung Association. The event is free for those who want to attend and wander around the cars, but my notification was an invitation for Porsches to customs, exotics and generally wild cars on display. Not being able to resist placing my 924S in amongst the more expensive cars on display, I registered to put Sparky on the show grounds – to be judged, of course!
The American Lung Association does some great things. They provide support for those living with asthma, lung cancer, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), and fighting the threats to lung health such as tobacco, air pollution and more. Eighty-six percent of revenue to the ALA supports their mission, and they have funded $86 million in landmark research. Their goals are simple: defeat lung cancer, improve the air we breathe, reduce the burden of lung disease, and eliminate the use of tobacco. These are all things that we can get behind and support.
The event runs from 11 am to 4 pm on Saturday, February 9. The weather looks like a great day, and there will be lots of great cars there for you to enjoy. There is no charge to attend, although I am sure that there will be ample opportunities to donate to the American Lung Association! The location is the Colonial Town Park in Lake Mary, FL, just east of Orlando. The address for your GPS is 950 Market Promenade Ave, Lake Mary, FL 32746. The event is still open for registration, so join us!
So if you can come and attend, stop by and say hello to Sparky and the crew from 924S944.com.
