MINI for A CAUSE – About: MINI FOR A CAUSE is an event that Norm and Jess Nelsen (MINI owners in CA who lost their home and several MINIs in the Paradise, CA fires last summer) are organizing with Chico Mini Cooper, Shasta MINIS, Capitol City MINIS & Mini & MINIS Int., co-sponsored with Butte Creek Country Club and Niello MINI. It is a Show & Shine MINIcar show Fundraiser for the youth of Northern California who lived through the nightmares of the Camp & Carr fires of last year. Most of these kids now have no place to go to relive their memories of childhood. MINI for a Cause event Facebook Link Let’s show some “east coast love” to support this cause for these children! As is often the case, there’s an initial outpouring of support, but as time passes, memories fade and more current events eclipse the devastation of the past. It’s too far for a day drive, but we can help locally. Here’s how: Saturday March 9th after the Meet and Greet at MINI of Montgomery County, we will take a ~ 1-1.5 hour drive to Beef – N – Buns in Paradise (get it?) in Frederick for some lunch and some fabulous ice cream. After lunch we will have a “local” 50/50 drawing with the proceeds designated to MINI FOR A CAUSE. MINI FOR A CAUSE has a 50/50 raffle, raffle items (for tickets) and silent auction items. Any items bid on and won by one of our “local” MINIs will be shipped by the organizers for free. We can also buy 50/50 raffle tickets for the California based event. The list of raffle and silent auction items is attached – some are unique, collectible items. If you are unable to attend the Meet and Greet at MINI of Montgomery County and/or lunch at Beef N Buns N Paradise but are interested in the donating to the charity or bidding on items, please send me a PM. List attached.
