BC Stars Raise Funds for Charity at the German Car Festival

This is the 16th year that the MBCA British Columbia Section has teamed up with the other German car manufacturers, BMW, Porsche, and Audi, to hold an event for charity. The German Car Festival is held each June in North Vancouver’s Waterfront Park. For a $10 Gate fee and a food donation, we invite the public to show their cars on the grass with a beautiful backdrop of the Vancouver skyline. MBCA volunteers greeted participants at the gate and safely directed parking. Manfred and Marie Stenzel manned our Club Information table, giving away literature and talking to the public about MBCA events. Two of our MBCA Seattle Section friends, Rik Johnson and Emmanuel Athans drove up to attend in a beautiful 'slightly' modified C55. The money and food goes to the Harvest Project, a local charity which gives a hand up to working families and those in the community needing help to get through tough times. Mercedes-Benz Vancouver is always a generous donor of prizes for our big raffle to raise funds. This year, Nestor Balce of MB Vancouver presented a Mercedes branded ladies watch, as the Grand prize. The MBCA BC Section also donated a number of handsome MB hats and articles. There were a 144 entries of vehicles this year, and a large food donation. The total cash raised this year was a respectable $1535.00. Many thanks to everyone who pitched in to help out. who helped out. A great time was had by all. A special thanks to Rod Meares of the BMW Club, who put a lot of effort into co-ordinating this event for a worthwhile cause. Photo credits: Victor Chan, Emmanuel Athans, Sean Clark
