Porsche Club of America members do more than drive cars!
The local Silver Sage Region’s 500+ members have donated over $250,000 to community charities since beginning in 1997 with almost half of these donations occurring in the last 5 years. 2021 ended on a high note for the Silver Sage Region of the PCA when our club finished up the annual charity drive in December resulting in a total contribution to the Faces of Hope Victims Center of $24,710.
At our December General Membership meeting, representatives of our Charity Commitee delivered the proceeds to the charity at Porsche Boise and discussed with their Executive Director, Page Dinger, the plan for use of these funds in 2022 to benefit people in our regional area that are being affected by domestic violence, sexual violence, child abuse, elder abuse, and stalking. The monies we have raised in 2021 will once again make a big difference for this local non-profit organization and the persons they serve.
Previous recipients of charity efforts are listed below. Selection of benefit organizations is based on club member requests and sponsorships.
Each year the Porsche Club of America issues Public Service Awards to recognize fund raising and community service activities. The Silver Sage Region efforts have been rewarded with a 1st trophy, as the top PCA region for Public Service in North America in 2008, 2012, 2016 and 2017. In 2018 and 2021, the region received honorable mention and brought home the 3rd place award in 2020. All awards are incredibly significant recognition for the community support and involvement from Porsche owners in southwestern Idaho and eastern Oregon.
