Upcoming Drive Toward a Cure Events
The Kentucky Bourbon Trail Getaway includes a full day of Unlimited Touring Laps at the NCM Motorsports Park before heading to The Brown Hotel in Louisville and a local “speakeasy” for great food and libations, and a chance to unwind. Saturday will feature a relaxing day touring several hand-picked Kentucky Bourbon distilleries with three meals included. Finally, on Sunday we explore some great back roads with lunch at the Bavarian Bierhaus in Nashvillle and we go behind the scenes at the Lane Motor Museum!
Signature Road Rallies
The fall colors in the Northeast are second to none! Whether you’re local or coming from parts that don’t experience such a dramatic change in seasons, it’s always a really special experience. And there is hardly a better way to enjoy it than driving your favorite car along the many classic back roads and byways of the Appalachian Mountains. The 2020 Drive Toward a Cure “Northeast Adventure” will continue to put Drive Toward a Cure at the pinnacle of driving events, blending cars and camaraderie for a great cause.
There are no upcoming events.
Drive Toward a Cure Days
This Police Escorted scenic drive fundraiser for Parkinson’s will start at the Art Exposure (ArtExposure50.com) in Hamstead, NC and take us through Sneads Ferry, Holly Ridge and most of Topsail Island, ending at the Soundside Park in Surf City. Once everyone has been safely parked we’ll have a People’s Choice awards for the top three Drive participants. There will be a few food trucks on hand, and there are a few restaurants minutes from the area should that be your preference.
Drive Toward a Cure is the official charity partner of the 2020 Groesbeck Grand Prix, and a portion of all entry fees and sponsorships go directly to supporting Drive Toward a Cure’s mission to raise funds and awareness to support the challenges of Parkinson’s Disease, benefiting research and patient care.
Event in the works. We’re looking forward to our first event with the Mercedes-Benz Club!
