Drive Toward a Cure “California Adventure” NorCal Start
May 3, 2018 @ 11:00 am - May 6, 2018 @ 11:00 am
Drive Toward a Cure – a 501(c)(3) charitable organization – hosts a series of all-inclusive, premium lifestyle rally driving events combining exotics and classics, top-rated hotels, fine dining, relaxation, some of the most amazing roads in America, our special stage, and lasting memories. Each is carefully designed to team cars and camaraderie in order to raise funds supporting Parkinson’s Disease research and patient care. Together, we raised more than $50,000 in 2017, and we hope you will join us to help make 2018 an even greater success!
The 2018 “California Adventure” raises the bar on our first events, with an amazing destination – the Alisal Guest Ranch & Resort!
Our SoCal starters will meet at the Petersen Automotive Museum for an exclusive tour of the newly updated “Vault”, which includes 20 historically significant Porsches celebrating the marque’s 70th anniversary, lunch, followed by a visit to a priceless private collection.
Our NorCal starters will meet at Canepa Motorsports – home to some truly amazing cars, located near Santa Cruz – for an exclusive tour of the facilities, showroom and museum, and lunch.
Both groups will start the driving portion of the event on Thursday with short drives to a champagne reception, dinner, and an overnight stay at highly-rated properties in Westlake and Monterey. On Friday, each will travel gloriously twisty roads to converge on Santa Barbara wine country for two more nights at the world famous ranch, with receptions, meals, and more.
Saturday includes another fun drive plus our “special stage” driving exercise in a safe space to push the limits briefly. Plus we’ve built in plenty of time for rest and relaxation at The Alisal and spread out the driving in order to fully enjoy our surroundings and new friends.
Driving has never meant more!
