“It will be like a beauty pageant of four-wheeled sports cars and I can already see how much this event is revving up our patients and the community,” said Hendrick.
Oak Lawn Mayor Dave Heilmann is equally excited about the parade. “What a wonderful day this will be for families in Oak Lawn,” said Heilmann. “We have a terrific international company like Porsche and hundreds of volunteers coming together to raise funds for children who receive life-saving care at Hope Children's Hospital.”
On July 2nd, Porsche will host an “exclusive” Sports Drive Event to benefit Hope. Select sponsors will get a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to join a professional race car driver for a drive and ride in their favorite Porsche on a closed course at the Autobahn Country Club in Joliet.
“We are extremely blessed to have been chosen as beneficiary for such a momentous series of events,” said Christ Medical Center and Hope Children’s Hospital president, Ken Lukhard. “What Porsche is doing on behalf of our children’s hospital speaks volumes about the company’s 100-year history of always delivering excellence and quality, and these events are no exception.”
Heir to the Porsche brand, Hans Peter Porsche, is expected to be on hand to greet guests on Saturday, July 3rd at a special Drive for Hope reception that will be held in a private hospitality suite at the DuPage County Airport. Attendees also will enjoy an elegant buffet and music. A Porsche Welcome Party will follow, where the winner of the new 2011 Porsche Cayenne S will be announced.
