Please join us for a Saturday of fun and camaraderie at our 3rd annual Turkeys in the Trunk charity event on Saturday, 17 November 2012. This event supports the Foodbank of Southeastern VA in their effort to collect food for the Thanksgiving season at their Mayflower Marathon event, a weekend long effort to fill as many big rigs as possible with donated food for distribution for less fortunate local families.
Stuff a frozen turkey (or 21 if you're last year's winner) and other Thanksgiving food items in your trunk – or ‘trunks’ for you Boxster/Cayman and 914 drivers – and head to Virginia Beach.
We’ll gather at Checkered Flag Porsche, weigh-ins start at 1:45PM, then we’ll drive in a Porsche caravan over to Pembroke Mall where the Mayflower Marathon is taking place to drop off the turkeys and other food items we’ve brought. The member who brings the most food will win a prize.
Next, we'll head out for the short fun to the Hunt Club Farm for dinner, drinks, hay rides, etc. They have a petting zoo for the kids and we'll have a fire to take the chill out of the fall weather.
Please note: The goal of the Foodbank's Mayflower Marathon is to collect frozen turkeys, non-perishable food items and monetary donations. Ideally, the food donated at the event can be turned into a fairly typical Thanksgiving meal for a person or family in need. The donated food is packed in boxes at the event by volunteers for distribution at the Foodbank beginning on Monday, November 19. So, please consider this when you decide what to donate.
In the interest of fairness, and to keep with the intent of the food drive, the competition will include some guidelines. First of all, the food has to be loaded into a Porsche. Although Cayennes are Porsches; at the risk of alienating our SUV brethren and in all fairness, we must restrict the competition for the big prize to Porsche cars only. Also, the ‘judges’ will be looking for “NASCAR-like” rule interpretations of the Marathon’s intent of collecting food for holiday meals - turkeys and the fixins’ are the goal; not low-volume/high weight bags of flour intended to bake the dessert pie or cases of soda to wash them down.
We hope to see you on this good day of giving, thanksgiving, and camaraderie to kick off the holiday season. We request you RSVP for the event through this site so we can get a head count for the Marathon and for the Hunt Club event and dinner after the fun run. So hit the “Continue” button and sign up for a day of fun and charity!
