Thumbs up Bimmerfest Opportunity Drawing (i.e. charity raffle)





As you know, the Bimmerfest Event is a non-profit happening geared towards the celebration of our beloved brand. The event is free to attend for all participants, as well as for our sponsors. Our sponsors do, however, donate valuable products to be raffled off in our "Opportunity Drawing" for the attendees - the proceeds from which are then reconveyed to a local non-profit agency. This year, the agency selected will be Family Service Agency of Santa Barbara.

Our mission is to strengthen and to advocate for families and individuals of all ages thereby creating a strong community.

Strengthening Santa Barbara County Families for Over 100 Years!
FSA is Santa Barbara County's first and oldest non-profit human service agency. Its programs help people help themselves. FSA services prevent family breakdown, intervene effectively where problems are known to exist and help individuals and families build on existing strength. Family Service Agency programs are available throughout Santa Barbara County. We offer programs addressing the unique concerns of youth, individuals, couples and seniors.


Whatever the problem- lack of basic necessities, family violence, isolation, depression or threat of suicide, marital problems, parenting difficulties or children who are at risk- FSA can make a fundamental difference in people's lives. Services are offered to people of all ages on a sliding-fee scale and many are free with the help of generous businesses, corporations, foundations and individuals.



FSA Programs


Families and Children's Programs
Helping children and families build on existing strengths so that their full potential can be reached.


Senior Programs
Helping seniors and persons with disabilities remain in their own homes with independence and dignity.



Providing helpful information and human service referrals.

In years gone by, the proceeds from raffle ticket sales have gone a long way to help those in need. In 2003, the Bimmerfest Community raised a great sum of money for the non-profit AOK program (Afterschool Opportunities for Kids). This year we hope to do significantly better than that!

This may just be the COOLEST thing about Bimmerfest. Non profit and helping the community at large. What a new, refreshing concept! Most people would put something together like this for no reason other than to make money for themselves. It feels GOOD to be a part of something positive.

Hats off to Bimmerfest! I think we've GOT something here!

Must you be present to win?

Those of us that can't attend would still like to have the opportunity to buy a ticket.

Smile Worthy Charity

Jon,

I can't believe that this is your 6th Bimmerfest and I can't make it once again! Of course, you recall that I was there the day after Bimmerfest 2001 to pick up my 325i!

My question is this. How can those of us who can not make it to Bimmerfest, but would like to participate by making a donation to your worthy charity participate in the fun of the drawing?

Please tell us more about the charity drawing.

Sincerely,

JPHerit

You know, I do remember your delivery day following the event in 2001.
Doc, I can't believe that was 4 years ago... Wow!!

I would love to figure out a way to make the Opportunity Drawing open to
everyone. The only problem with that is administration. I would have to be
the person to coordinate and execute everything myself, and I'm afraid that
I am already at the maximum level of involvement that I can possibly handle.
With less than 3 weeks remaining, my internal CPU usage is redlined...


I'll give it some thought. I do appreciate your desire to support our
worthy cause...


For those in attendance, Samir of Technik Engineering just donated
an E46 M3 GruppeM intake system...

Jon, you gotta figure out a way for people who aren't able to attend to be in the draw!!

Not only is there some great bling we can't dream of, you'd make a ton more money doing that!
