Our Stars

Sponsorship began in 2015 when…

…the founders cold called a few companies who we thought may want to sponsor an activity or promote their products to our little group of 27 owners. Of the many we called, there was no hesitation from Hennessy Porsche to sponsor an activity. They have continued to support our event every year. They remain our Premier Dealer Sponsor!

In 2017 HRE Wheels, Dundon Motorsports, and GMP Performance have donated their products, services, and time to our spring events. Their contributions not only raise funds for the charity we support, but also provide vital technical and support services to our participants. Their participation has continued.

We are incredibly grateful to the above organizations for helping us to help others.

 

Get Involved

The success of our group is due to the enthusiasm and commitment of all members and supporters. Whilst we grow, we maintain a close connection to the magical ingredients of the community thats been created.
