Attention all Charlotte area Benz owners!


Here's a chance to show off your classic, semi-classic, modern-classic Mercedes AND help raise funds for a good cause at the same time!

We need your participation on November 13th (Saturday) at our 65 mile car rally.

This is a rally to sponsor and raise funds for Alzheimers cures. My mom has alzheimers and at 82, does not even know who I am half the time.

This is a chance to show off your CARS during a "Poker Rally" starting from Charlotte and ending at Spencer, N.C. (about 1.5 hours away)

$40.00 to attend.

I have attached a PDF with more info.

I promised the sponsor I would post this on Benzworld and would like to see some MB there. There will classic and unusual, unique cars from several countries of origin.

Call Frank Risalvato at 704-243-2110 if you have additional questions.

**SEE THE PDF ATTTACHED**

My wife and I would like to join you at the “Poker Rally” in Charlotte . It’s only 1 1/2 hr. away from us in SC. It’s a cause, Alzheimers, we would like to support.
Is it to late to mail the form in or should we just bring it with us and sign in there?

That looks like a fun time for a great cause. Wish I could join you, just too far away.
Same from me Frank, 4000 mls of water is just too much even for an SL500. But I'd like to wish you all the best for a successful meet. Please post some pictures. A very worthy cause, sorry to hear about your Mum.

Regards
Steve

Russ - No it is not too late. They want and will welcome as many participants as possible. Call me at my office tomorrow (704) 243-2110 and I can get you to pay cash when you arrive.

We are meeting BEHIND Southpark Mall in Charlotte - by the symphony stadium.
There will be 1,500 "WALKERS" doing a "walk-a-thon".

SEE PDF - the cars will be on display for walkers to view before they set off.
Then we (drivers) will leave in one big caravan immediately afterwards.
If you CALL me I will give you my cell phone (don't want to post that here) and we can meet on that Saturday.

SEE you Saturday Russ! We're meeting by the lot in FRONT of Dick's sporting goods which is actually on the Southwest side of the mall (they incorrectly listed it as Southeast side). You will see cars/signs as you get close.

Alzheimer's Fund Raiser = $50k raised & New Benz Owner Friends

Today's fund raiser was estimated to raise $50,000.00 to find a cure for Alzheimers.

Thanks mom for all you did. Even though you often don't recognize me no more.

I got to meet Russel and his lovely wife Jean from Benzworld and while there were only 3 Benz owners of about 40 cars or so - we had a great time.

to see the video on youtube.

NICE TO MEET YOU RUSSEL AND JEAN!:)

Hi Russel - Great meeting you and your lovely wife Jean - could not have been a finer day in the country driving "topless". HI posted the picture taken at the end - I take no responsibility for the finger in the top left however.
