We have donated over $300,000 to charity during the past ten years. The Charity Program has been great fun and very successful thanks to our sponsors and the generosity of our members. We have raffles at our monthly breakfasts, a fun White Elephant Auction at the Holiday Party, a silent auction at the Spring Charity event, charity laps during our Driver’s Education events, the Air & Auto Classic Car Show in the fall, and “Turkeys-in-the-Trunk” to support the Mayflower Marathon in Hampton Roads. It keeps our volunteers busy and we keep it all fun!
2018 was a specifically wonderful year for the First Settlers Region Charity Program!
In 2018, our Region raised over $100,000 and, with direct member involvement on the job site, built a house for Habitat for Humanity. The project took the commitment of a great team, our Board of Directors and the dedication, generosity, time and sweat equity of a large number of our members. Not to mention, a host of sponsors who are always there for us.
As a result of our work, a young family is living in a home of their own. It is, and will always be, the home built by the First Settlers Region, Porsche Club of America.
Please don’t hesitate to contact Josie Grandfield, Charity Coordinator, if you have any questions, ideas, sponsorship or would just like to help out.
