Non-profit Drive Toward a Cure continues to showcase summer as the perfect time for driving with it’s “get out and drive” fundraiser. The organization also suggests that summer is the perfect time to read a great book, and Singer Vehicle Design, known for its supercar conversions of early Porsche, has donated a very special book to raise funds for Parkinson’s Disease.
Singer founder and executive chairman Rob Dickinson has donated the last originally printed first edition copy of his One More Than 10 – Singer and the Porsche 911 book, and has personally autographed that copy. To enter to win, you must register for the “Summer Drive” program or donate directly to Drive Toward a Cure prior to the drawing on July 23rd. All current registrations and donations will be included.
According to Deb Pollack, founder of Drive Toward a Cure, in the wake of pausing its own annual driving gatherings and events, the foundation chose to challenge drivers nationwide to take on the 75 days of Summer 2020 as an encouragement to get out and do what we all enjoy the most – to “get out and drive.”
Beginning the first day of the summer season, June 21st, and lasting through Labor Day, licensed motorists coast-to-coast can appreciate summertime drives near or far and enter to win prizes based on the mileage they accrue and the ability to share their experiences socially, all the while, benefitting Parkinson’s disease.
“We’re thankful to friends and supporters like Singer Vehicle Design offering creative solutions to continue our fundraising efforts, especially during the unique circumstances we are all facing,” said Pollack.
Throughout the summer, in addition to weekly random prize drawings, there will be several special prizes awarded.
Drive Toward a Cure raises funds and awareness for Parkinson’s Disease research and patient care. Inspired by the camaraderie found within the automotive culture, the organization’s mission benefits equally from both enthusiast communities and industry professionals. Drive Toward a Cure events harness enthusiasm for cars and driving and turn that power into support for ongoing work to improve the lives of those living with Parkinson’s, as well as the research that will hopefully one day lead to a cure.
