We are truly grateful to our very good friends at Pfaff Porsche and McLaren Toronto for hosting our December Holiday Social. A few years ago the Board asked whether there would be enough interest for a December Social, given it is the busy holiday season.
This year had 116 members check in! So a huge thank you to Pfaff Porsche and McLaren Toronto for their generosity in hosting a terrific Holiday Social for UCR members. And thank you to all UCR members for attending and showing your support of our wonderful club.
Libations, lots of good food and much laughter set the tone for the evening. Dave Sambrook, General Manager, Pfaff Porsche, welcomed UCR members and spoke about the history of Porsche and Pfaff Porsche. UCR members walked away with many, many generous Porsche prizes, kindly hand picked by Dave and his Pfaff Porsche team.
Allison Pigden, Communications Specialist and Event Planner extraordinaire with Pfaff Porsche, drew the names of the very lucky UCR winners. Hazel de Burgh handed out two Street Survival prizes to UCR winners as well. Walter Murray and I handed out UCR pins to new UCR members Glen Donaldson, Brian and Kelly Graham and Mark Holman. Welcome to UCR!
Mike Bryan, new UCR President, thanked Dave Sambrook and his team at Pfaff Porsche for a fantastic soirée.
I am delighted to have Martin Tekela as my Socials Co-Chair for the year ahead. Martin is Past President as well as past Socials Chair, and needless to say has a tremendous amount of experience to offer UCR and is great fun to work with! Martin is running the January Social hosted at Pfaff Autoworks and we hope you can attend.
A big thank you to my good friend, Kim Viney, for helping me run registration smoothly and Michael Coates, our Club Photographer, for taking photos of the evening for Provinz and our website.
It takes a community to run our club and kudos to you all for your attendance, involvement and support!
