Post The Bimmerfest 2013 "Opportunity Drawing" (Charity Raffle)

In just 2 weeks from tomorrow morning we will all converge upon the illustrious Rose Bowl in Pasadena CA for the 14th installment of the annual BIMMERFEST event. By all objective measures, this year's show is forecast to surpass all others in terms of BMW fan attendance, vendor support, and overall enthusiasm.

As Founder of Bimmerfest I've always taken great pride in one particular element of the show, the Bimmerfest "Opportunity Drawing" (a.k.a. Charity Raffle). There is no doubt that those of us who are fortunate enough to drive BMWs are quite privileged Sometimes we take our good fortune for granted, and the raffle provides us with a unique opportunity to give something back to the universe, or "pay it forward" if you will.

Over the years our Bimmerfest sponsors have donated some truly amazing prizes, and for 2013, those are now starting to ramp up and roll in.

This year we have chosen New Beginnings Counselling Center in Santa Barbara as our beneficiary.


ABOUT NEW BEGINNINGS COUNSELING CENTER


New Beginnings Counseling Center (NBCC) was founded in November, 2000 to provide mental health services and outreach programs to the lower income individuals in the Santa Barbara area, regardless of an individual's ability to pay for services. New Beginnings has long ensured that those most vulnerable in our community have the means to change the circumstances that put them at risk and helps these individuals to move towards emotional and socio-economic self-sufficiency by providing them with a stable source of care and support. NBCC has been, and continues to be, recognized internationally for its success with its RV Safe Parking and Homeless Outreach Program, most recently in an 11- page article in the July 2012 issue of Rolling Stone magazine, and interviews on CNN, Larry King Live, People Magazine, the Discovery Channel, CBC, France Channel 5, UK Channel 4, and Argentine CQC.

NBCC currently has four programs through which it served 1,639 unduplicated individuals this past fiscal year:

1) A community counseling clinic which boasts 32 volunteer counselors and 14 volunteer supervisors at the Masters and Doctoral levels;

2) the RV Safe Parking and Homeless Outreach Program, which provides overnight parking shelter for families and individuals who live in their vehicles, case management services to help people get housed and employed, and cash assistance for vehicle, housing, and health expenses;

3) Case Management services provided to the Santa Barbara City Housing Authority to keep their most vulnerable clients stable and from becoming homeless; and

4) the Life Skills Parenting Education and Youth Outreach Program which provides psychoeducational classes to parents and you in both English and Spanish throughout the community. Our clients include the recently and chronically homeless, individuals with severe and persistent mental illness, physically disabled and developmentally challenged youth and adults, seniors, veterans, victims of domestic violence, addicts, and the under and unemployed.


Funds donated by Bimmerfest from the proceeds of event raffles will be utilized to provide:

Mental health services to individuals with little or no income;

Case management services to homeless individuals to help them get housed, find jobs, and maintain stability in their lives;

Cash assistance for vehicle repairs for homeless families and individuals living in their vehicles;

Cash assistance for low income individuals to assist them in obtaining specific medical and dental care; and

Food distributed weekly to families and individuals who are homeless and/or who require subsidized food assistance monthly.


NEW BEGINNINGS COUNSELING CENTER is a 501c3 non-profit community organization

ST Suspension Coilover Kit for E9X Bimmers!

To get things started, our friends over at ST Suspensions has donated the following:

ST suspensions announces they will be donating their performance coilover for the BMW 3 series (E90, E91, E92, E93).

The ST suspensions coilover for the BMW 3 series enables the owner to lower their vehicle 0.8-2.4* inches on the front axle and 0.8-2.2* inches on the rear axle and retains enough travel to handle maximum load and dynamic loads during driving. ST suspensions coilover with its preset dampening rates permits customized lowering of the suspension and
creates an optimized balance of sportiness, comfort and safety.

Important characteristics such as safety, quality and performance are all taken into consideration with each ST suspensions coilover design. Each vehicle application is specifically designed and engineered for a proper range of motion, min/max weight loads and min/max lowering. All these requirements are met while retaining its performance
handling characteristics.

Each ST suspensions coilover is constructed of zinc plated threaded strut housings and utilized a compression bumpstop with integrated dust boot for additional ride comfort and long term durability.


All ST suspensions coilovers pass stringent German TUV safety and quality testing standards. Each kit is TUV approved.

BMW 3 series Sedan+Coupe (E90+E92) Part #: 90232 MSRP: $ 1,149.99
BMW 3 series Wagon+Convertible (E91+E93) Part #: 90233 MSRP: $ 1,149.99





Thanks ST Suspensions!!
