After the hectic Miami Art week, we were happy to spend the weekend donating our space, time, and vehicles to amazing causes.
The morning of December 7, THE COLLECTION participated in the 8th annual Exotic Car Toy Rally, to benefit Toys for Tots. Eight of our employees drove McLarens, Aston Martins, Maseratis, an Audi, a Ferrari, and a Jaguar in the Toy Rally, one of the largest processions of exotic cars in the country. Hundreds of exotic cars were driven from the beautiful Westin Diplomat Resort & Spa Golf Resort to the Sun Life Stadium, home to the Miami Dolphins. The 2013 Toy Rally brought in a record amount of toys, which required moving trucks for the United States Marine Corps to collect them all, as well as over $30,000 in cash donations for Toys for Tots. Toys for Tots distributed the toys collected directly to underprivileged children and put a smile on their faces, brightening their holidays.
That evening, THE COLLECTION Audi showroom was donated as a party space for a charity:water fundraiser. charity:water is a non-profit organization on a mission to bring clean and safe drinking water to every person on the planet. To date, they have funded 9,458 water projects in 20 countries. The event featured cuisine and liquor donated from local establishments, such as Seasons 52, Morton’s, Atlantico Rum, and LA Sweets, and a silent auction on items like an Audi A4 and A6. It always feels good to give back!
