AutoQuest of SW FL Hosts Everglades PCA Valentines Day Party
Thanks to the great support from our hosts at AutoQuest -Gavin, Amy, and Meagan- more than 80 Everglades PCA members and friends kicked off Valentine’s Day in great style in a nightclub setting complete with mood lighting, awesome cars, and great food and drink. The party provided the opportunity to welcome new and potential members to PCA, and to say hello to PCA members from other parts of the country who are enjoying all that southwest Florida has to offer during our busy winter season.
President Dave Noelken welcomed us all and mentioned that our club is one of the fastest growing in the US, thanks in great part to past leadership from Chris Branston. Gavin and Amy also provided gifts, held a Porsche quiz, and made a generous $1000 donation to the Galisano Children’s Hospital in Ft Myers.
The spotlight was certainly on cars that evening! Enjoying the spotlight inside AutoQuest was the impressive 918 e-hybrid, worth over $2 million, and the gorgeous Valentine-red Porsche Spider. Outside in the parking area, members spent time enjoying each other’s vehicles, including the stable of racing cars that Amy and Gavin have on display. Best of luck to Gavin when he powers one up Pikes Peak in an upcoming race.
We are grateful to our volunteer members who helped with parking, venue setup, club clothing sales, and tending to food and drink, and who made the Valentine atmosphere special for all.
Everglades PCA has many more events scheduled over the next 4 months including: theater/dinner events, kayaking in Ding Darling Wildlife Sanctuary, autocross, road rallies, Everblades hockey, Koreshan tour and lunch, and the wonderful weekend of the year (WOTY) in the Florida Keys. Come join us! As always, we welcome your feedback about our events, activities you’d like to see us schedule, and ways to improve outreach and communication throughout the region.
