Helenblitz 2009 Charity Event

Well, we are furiously planning the "Helenblitz 2009 Charity Event which will be February 27 - March 1, 2009 in the town of Helen, GA. This will be the first event of the Mini/MINI 50th Anniversary/Golden Jubilee. I have sent out notices to the other SMALL affiliate clubs and have begun making requests of the various Mini and MINI vendors (30 so far) for donations and participation in the event. I have been contacted by Redline Accessories (www.redlinegoods.com), which is a European company. So I guess in a way Helenblitz is an internationally sponsored event!

We will be getting great coverage from our fantastic friends at MC2 Magazine and the NAM Alliance Magazine, NAM Alliance will be running a story on the Helen 2008 event to get interest going ahead of the Helenblitz 2009. As usual, our friends at M2C2 (MINI Motoring Club of the Carolinas) are working some magic at their end as well.

We are looking at having events like a car show, social gatherings, drives, scavenger hunts, auction and raffle, and tours of the local winery and grist mill. I am really excited about this year's event.

Certainly more to come, hope to see you at the event.

Way cool! Thanks for organizing this. Had a lot of fun in Helen on weekend trips from Atlanta. It's a great venue for what sounds to be turning into a great event!

This might be doable. How close to that week-end do we have to let you know about the wine?
