2014 marks the 9th annual running of this Good Works event organized by members of the Canadian West Region of the the Porsche Club of America. Always held on Father’s Day – which falls on June 15 this year – the event raises money for medical research to help find a cure for Cystic Fibrosis, a deadly genetic disease affecting children and young adults across Canada.
Since starting this event in June of 2006, more than $45,000 has been raised by means of donating all entry fees for registering and displaying a Porsche in the show to Cystic Fibrosis Canada, and by selling off rides in the Porsche Parade drive up Cypress Mountain at the end of the show.
On June 15, 2014, the 2400 block on Marine Drive in Dundarave Village will have its traffic reduced in both directions to one lane each way to allow for the static display of up to 100 Porsche sports cars starting at 10:00 a.m.. This process will be managed by the qualified staff from BA Blacktop who will be on site for the duration of the display.
The static display occurs from 10:00 a.m. until 1:00 p.m., and for the static display to start on time, all Porsches signed up for the display must in place by 10:00am, and to ensure there is sufficient time to take care of this in an orderly fashion, BA Blacktop will have the curb lanes closed by 8:00am.
The Parade style drive up Cypress mountain will leave at precisely 1:00pm, at which time the curb lanes need to be cleared as soon as possible to allow for the resumption of the normal traffic pattern on Marine Drive. The route up Cypress Mountain will start by heading westward on Marine Drive towards the Horseshoe Bay exit – about 9 kilometers – then turning right onto the ramp leading to the upper levels highway, and then to exit #8 onto Cypress Bowl Rd and following this 3 lane, paved highway for approximately 14 kilometers to the first overflow parking lot, the final destination and a great opportunity to take some photographs. Drivers are requested to drive safely at all times and obey all road signs, including posted speeds! This is a highly visible event in the local community and we need to respond accordingly.
This event will be open to all Porsche owners who would like to participate in this charitable event in support of Cystic Fibrosis Canada. Delany’s Coffee House in Dundarave will be providing free coffee for Porsche owners signed up for the event, and there are several door prizes to be won courtesy of the Canada West Region of the Porsche Club of America.
Contributing to the festive ambience in Dundarave Village will be Vancouver singer and songwriter Rachael Chatoor who will be performing at various times during the Show ‘n Shine component of the event from a location on the sidewalk.
Although our event is fully insured by the PCA – as required by the District of West Vancouver – participating Porsche owners will be required to sign a PCA insurance waiver.
