Motoring Mavs for 57 Years
3 events, 1 day, 3000+ members
Celebrating our Region Founding in 1962
To commemorate the 57th Anniversary of the Maverick Region, we have planned multiple events during our Founders Day Celebration. We are starting off with Mavs & Mochas at Nordstrom at NorthPark Center with a People's Choice Car Show.
Then a Toy Drive from Walmart Plano at Dallas N Tollway and Park to the East side of Plano where we will drop off toys at the Plano Police Department.
Finally, the 57th Anniversary Founders Day Celebration will take place at Porsche Grapevine in Grapevine. The newest of the 4 Porsche dealerships in DFW boasts a two-story venue with the latest design and features including a classic car shop. We are excited to showcase at this event 50 years of the Porsche 914.
Our online silent auction is back for our charity: the Huffaker-Hughes Hope House. Yes, you read that right -- the items photos, descriptions, bidding, and payment will all take place online! Just visit the website, and start bidding now!
Dinner will be catered by Pecan Lodge with their award- winning pulled pork, smoked brisket, southern fried chicken, salad, sides, peach cobbler and cupcakes. The event will also include an open bar.
In conjunction with Mavs & Mochas at Nordstrom at NorthPark Center in Dallas, we are having a People's Choice Car Show. A "People's Choice" car show is simply a car show where the people (Maverick Members) vote for their favorite car. There are no rules or other judges. There is no need to go crazy cleaning and detailing your car. This is meant to be a fun way to show off your Porsche. Each member in attendance will get a ballot with space for up to 10 cars. You can only vote for the same car once. The Top 10 cars with the most votes will receive a trophy.
There is a $25 entry fee per car. The entry fee is donated to the clubs charity, Hope House. Registration is required by December 1st.
The Maverick Region in conjunction with the Plano Christmas Cops effort is conducting a Toy Drive in which Maverick members will leave Walmart Plano and head west to the Plano Police Department. There they will drop off Walmart Gift Cards and toys for families in need. Since many of these families need more than just toys, it would be very appropriate to provide both a gift for the children and a gift card for use by the parents. Download the flyer for details about the Toy Drive and the items needed. Please register so we know how many cars and gifts to expect. The drive itself is FREE!
Our Founders Day Silent Auction is our largest financial contributor to our Mav PCA charity. Last year, with the contributions of our sponsors and members, our Silent Auction raised over $14,000. Hope exists to eliminate domestic violence through intervention, offering shelter, counseling, support, and education to promote the healing of abusive relationships. Maverick Region is proud to partner with this great cause.
We hope you'll choose to participate through the ONLINE Silent Auction or by providing Walmart Gift Cards to this great charity. There is also an option to just donate cash through the auction website.
