Women in Porsche, a Los Angeles-based organization founded by Porsche car enthusiast Laurina Esposito, are a global community of women passionate about Porsche cars. With chapters in Florida, Germany, and the U.K., its members are dedicated to sharing stories and connecting women who love, work with and drive Porsche vehicles.
This holiday season, Women In Porsche Cares, the organization’s charitable arm, is adding a community approach to their annual membership drive by offering members the ability to support Parkinson’s disease through the Drive Toward a Cure non-profit initiative.
Drive Toward a Cure is a non-profit foundation that supports those challenged by Parkinson’s Disease through an ever-growing base of automotive aficionados. Since 2016, the organization has raised more than $500K through multi-day drives, one-day club, track events, and virtual programs.
According to Deb Pollack, founder of Drive Toward a Cure, Porsche owners have consistently played an ongoing role with the Foundation’s growth, from regional club driving events supporting the cause to attending multi-day rallies each year. “Back in 2016, the very first entrant in one of our events was the owner of a vintage 356 Super 90,” said Pollack.
Pollack believes that the women who align with Porsche are community-minded and enjoy women’s driving programs, including non-professional racing endeavors.
When Laurina Esposito, founder of Women in Porsche, contacted Drive Toward a Cure, she too realized the alignment went further than just a way to give. “With the launch of WiPCares, our philanthropic movement, we have a chance to not only support Parkinson’s but offer our members memorable opportunities beyond their donation – including the benefit of bringing cars and camaraderie into our communities and finding new and enjoyable ways to come together, especially during the holiday season.”
As part of the organization’s Holiday Donation Campaign, Women in Porsche will discount the annual $75 club membership fee to just $25, with a $50 donation to Drive Toward a Cure for Parkinson’s Disease.
New members will receive a $50 tax receipt along with all the Women in Porsche membership benefits!
