About this event
This is a 4-in-1 event! Community Service, Tour, Lunch Social, and Pictures with Santa!
We are happy to partner with our friends at Linda’s Legacy and Kindertime Toy Drive again this year!
We are collecting donations to sponsor backpacks to provide those in need in Anne Arundel County, Baltimore County, and Baltimore City with hats, gloves, scarves, thermal underwear and socks (see below for how to make a donation). Last year our region and its members sponsored over 200 backpacks!
Then on Saturday December 9th, with thanks to our good friends at Porsche Hunt Valley, we will meet at their showroom to assemble the backpacks and bring our gifts of new, unwrapped toys for the Kindertime Toy Drive donation. Kindertime’s founder Pete O’Neil will join us there to welcome us and talk more about Kindertime.
Afterwards we will be treated to a driving Tour through the back roads of Baltimore and Howard County followed by lunch at Dive Bar and Grille in Historic Savage Mill. Lunch seating will be reserved for the first 40 people who register for the lunch segment. Anyone after that will be put on the waiting list and may not be guaranteed seating with the group. For anyone attending the lunch they will need to pick their menu item and prepay at the time of sign up.
Pictures with Santa
This year we are adding something new for the families of PCA Chesapeake courtesy of the team at Porsche Hunt Valley, pictures with Santa! Don't wait in long lines at other Santa's. Bring the kids out and get their pictures taken with Santa in front of Porsche with a Christmas tree on the roof. All participants will be provided with a link to download their photos to print or share however they wish.
