The Collection opened its doors for Rise and Drive: A curated Cars & Coffee event on Saturday, Sept 14th. Over 400 car enthusiasts gathered at THE COLLECTION for a day filled with surprises in every corner of our dealership. With pride of ownership of a vehicle comes the desire to share it as it represents a commitment so great that car enthusiasts spend their morning mingling with others and enjoying their Saturday surrounded by vehicles of all makes and models from rally cars to Porsche’s, Ferrari’s, Jeeps, Lamborghini’s and everything in between.
If guests registered their vehicle for the concours, they were able to sign up for a raffle to win a signed Dwayne Wade Miami Heat Jersey. If guests were kind enough to donate items to our donation drive for the victims of Hurricane Dorian, they also entered a raffle for a chance to win an original sketch by Marz Ink whose artwork was displayed throughout our Porsche Showroom.
Once they checked in, attendees were free to explore all eight of our showrooms as well as take a private tour to our one-of-a-kind service shop.
Inside our Piazza, Aroma Espresso’s Kombi Cart prepared delicious made-to-order coffee to help start everyone’s morning. Inside our Porsche showroom, guests were taken back in time to the 1960’s for a themed celebration. Guests gushed over the historical Porsche display in the center of the showroom all leading up to all-new 2020 Porsche 992 while listening to the tunes of Elvis Presley and The Beatles. If guests weren’t sitting in the groovy colorful egg chairs, they were either shopping in Porsche Designs pop-up boutique, discovering the Porsche Exclusive Manufaktur embossing station or taking a test drive in the all-new Porsche 911.
The fun continued in our Ferrari/Maserati/Alfa Romeo showroom where our Xbox Station was set, and skills were put to the test as guests played Project Cars 2 and raced against one another in our Challenge Cars. Craving something sweet? Guests enjoyed a delicious Croissant Station inside our Jaguar Showroom while sipping on champagne and discovering the Jaguar lineup.
The rain and heat did not skip a beat and Jeremiah’s Italian Ice was there to help. Inside our Audi showroom, guests enjoyed their Italian Ice as they explored the full Audi model range. The surprises did not stop. The winners to both raffles were announced towards the end of our event and they were thrilled. We look forward to bringing you more surprises at out next event.
