9th Annual Durham Rescue Mission Toy Drive, Saturday - December 3rd!

Ladies & Gentlemen, I cannot believe it but…it is that time of the year again!! Wow…the year flies by!

On Saturday December 3rd, with the generous help from our local PCA colleagues, we will be hosting our 9th Annual Toy Drive for the Durham Rescue Mission.

Our Toy Drive has become the primary source of Christmas presents for the boys & girls at the Durham Rescue Mission...so please, be generous! With your incredible gratitude, the kids at the Durham Rescue Mission can have a Christmas that most of us take for granted.

The guidelines for a Christmas present are as follows:
- Boys & Girls ages 12 and under
- Please make sure the gift remains unwrapped

Event Details:
- The Triangle Area PCA (thank you Tom Roos!) has again for this year offered Porsche Southpoint (122 Kentington Dr, Durham, NC) as the Toy Drive location. >>Enter from Rolando Drive!

- The PCA C&C starts @ 9:00-9:30, and, we plan to have the truck from the Durham Rescue Mission arrive around the same time.

- For those in the Cary / Apex / Holly Springs / Fuquay area, we will be meeting @ Leith VW (2300 Autopark Blvd., Cary, NC) at 8:30AM, departing there at 9:00AM sharp.

A very sincere "thank you!" to everyone in advance for helping with this toy drive! We look forward to seeing everyone out there! You guys are awesome!

See you all on December 3rd!

Cheers!
Keith Hall, Tom Roos, and Greg Owens

There was a gentleman on here with a black 16M who mentioned he just moved to the Cary area and was curious about activities and drives. I want to make sure he's aware and can participate...he would be a very nice addition to the event and drive over.

Hey, I think you are referring to me! I was just telling my wife that we need to go to this when I saw your message. I'll be there in the 16M as long as the weather is good, otherwise I'll be there in my BMW M2

I sold my 458 and my 488 is expected to arrive mid December. I will be there for sure, in Cary, like last year, but this time with my 911.

We will be ramping up communications in the next couple of weeks. Leith VW in Cary is again participating and can be meeting point for Caravan to Porsche at South Pointe. Let's try to beat last year's record. All gifts benefit Durham Rescue Mission and all toys go to local children.

If anyone is coming from the Triad or Burlington area, perhaps we can caravan? Shoot me a PM, or better yet an email.

Keith and Greg, as always, thanks for organizing!

I've already touched base with Keith, but...it looks as though I will not be able to attend this year.

The meeting location (Porsche Southpoint) and times are unchanged. The Cary / Apex / Holly Springs caravan spot (Leith Volkswagen) and 9:00AM departure time is also unchanged.

I will be making sure the Owens' family toy stash has been handed-off to either Keith or Jack McCausland prior to that Saturday.

We will miss you Greg!

I have invited some friends with their 458's & 488's that will join too. Should be another great event.

I picked up a trunk-load full of toys with my girls Saturday night. I'll run them over to Leith VW after Thanksgiving. Very sad I won't be there this year!

Sounds great - we will have some coffee and donuts at Leith VW in Cary (2300 Autopark Blvd / Cary 27511 - down the hill from Nissan and Preowned and right next door to Mercedes Benz) starting ~ 8. Last I heard the plan was to meet around 8 and roll out at 9. Let me know (name and car) if you plan on caravanning from VW and we'll watch out for you.

I won't pass up coffee and donuts! I'll be there by 8:30 with my gray F430.
