Mini/Porsche Challenge II
What is this? How did it start?

It is: A community effort to raise food and money for Northwest Harvest.

It started: By an innocent article in Spiel, the magazine of the local Porsche Club, written by the Social Chair and Director at Large of the Pacific Northwest Region of the Porsche Club of America (PNWR).

The article mentioned the effort of a much smaller club, Puget Sound MINI Motoring Club (PSMINI), in donating to Northwest Harvest. All good, right? But the article went on to tout the “SIZE and STRENGTH” of his club, the PNWR of the Porsche Club of America. All good again, but…?

It sounded to some that PNWR could do a much better job in raising food and funds than this little PSMINI car club. Well, it seems the author of this article didn’t consider that one reader belonged to both clubs and was involved in the previous efforts of the much smaller club.

The outcome was a “CHALLENGE” that was accepted and adopted by both organizations, with in over 100 cars participating, loaded with food donations and over $5,000.00 in monetary donations. The WINNER-----------NORTHWEST HARVEST!

Members of both clubs are fortunate and caring individuals that also like competition! But, more importantly, they believe the overall health of their community is critical to their way of life.Their goal, expend effort to enrich the community and add a “FUN TWIST” to the whole thing. Pretty cool!!!!

We have a Facebook page - If you are registered with Facebook, go visit the page and share with all your friends:

Plan on being at Overlake Christian Church @ Noon on Dec 3, 2011. (http://maps.google.com/maps?q=Overlake+Christian+Church+Redmond)
Bring your MINI or Porsche filled to the brim with food. Can’t bring food? Don’t despair -- hop in your car and motor down with a check, for whatever you can afford, made payable to Northwest Harvest.

BE A PART OF YOUR COMMUNITY-------ENJOY YOUR CAR and YOUR FELLOW CAR NUTS, and come out and receive a very special sense of accomplishment through your generosity.

We are hoping to see everyone from last years “Challenge” plus many more MINI and Porsche owners supporting our community.


Mini and Porsche owner

If you missed this event last year---------------------DON'T this year. Never had as much fun prior to the event and during the event as I had last year. The gratification of giving to the less fortunate in our community is REALLY REWARDING!
So----------get READY TO SHOW PORSCHE THEY MAY HAVE NUMBERS --------------------------- But Mini has HEART!
Additional details will be posted as they get nailed down.
Tell your friends, family, co-workers, neighbors to start packing away food stuff or $$$$ now!!
PS: Watch for videos in the not to distant future. We have our Ed (SPIELBERG) producing and directing this years hit! WINSTON WILL RULE!
