Porsche Club of America members do more than drive cars.
The local Silver Sage Region’s 400+ members have donated more than $100,000 to community charities over the past ten (10) years. In 2017, donations exceeded $23k as members rallied in support of The Jesse Tree, a non-profit organization dedicated to providing housing assistance to residents in need.
Previous recipients of charity efforts have been; The Jesse Tree, Miles of Smiles, Book it Forward! Idaho (BiF!I),The Community Stars, The Garden City Community Clinic, Make-A-Wish, the Idaho veteran’s Assistance League with Beds for Veterans, Backpacks for Kids through the Idaho Food Bank, the Women and Children’s Alliance, and Terry Reilly Health Services. Selection of benefit organizations is based on club member requests.
Each year the Porsche Club of America selects a region for its Public Service Award to recognize fund raising and community service activities. The Silver Sage Region efforts have been rewarded with a first-place trophy, as the best of 144 regions in the nation at the Porsche Club of American National Convention in both 2008 and again in 2012.
The 2018 Charity Auction is tentatively planned for Friday, November 3rd For more information, please contact Charity Chairman, Molly Cuddeford at Charity@SilverSagePorsche.com.
