Maserati of Baltimore Rally for the Troops SPIRIT AWARD: First Run of the Rally

Summer is delicious, RAIN is refreshing, wind braces up, snow is exhilarating; there is no such thing as bad weather, only different kinds of good weather. ~~ John Ruskin

Saturday September 6, 2008 was a day to remember. With Tropical Storm HANNA hitting the Baltimore Coast and making it’s landfall just in time for the “MASERATI OF BALTIMORE RALLY FOR THE TROOPS”, car lovers around Baltimore were discouraged that we had to request our drivers stay off the road and complete their fun run road rally when skies were going to be more friendly.

AWARDS DEDICATIONS

FIRST RUN OF THE ROAD RALLY

SPIRIT AWARD: FIRST RUN OF THE ROAD RALLY GOES TO JOE AND DOTTY HORDUBAY

By the time we cleared our last set of guests last night (around 9:30 pm) and headed down to the Afterparty at CIAO BELLA RESTAURANT, we decided Maserati of Baltimore was going to give our spirit awards out by Internet first–before we contacted people to say thank you directly.

This first award is for valiant efforts running our road rally and getting the results back to us in a timely manner for grading.

FIRST RUN OF THE RALLY

Owner Joe Hordubay piloted his 2002 Ford Taurus and made a generous VIP level donation to the USO of Metropolitan Washington. His lovely wife Dotty served as his co-pilot, and helped decorate their RALLY GAME PACK with messages of love and support to all of our volunteers and also included a great message for the troops.

COMMENTS ABOUT THE ROAD RALLY AND EVENT

Here’s what the Hordubays had to say about our Passport Rally:

“Great Picture Clues! Beautiful Scenery! Fabulous Planning!”

Their opinion of the Fun Run and HOLY HANNA Brunch?

“Congrats on a VERY Successful EVENT!”

Penciling in their own summary of the day and personal storm story (what they had to overcome this weekend and have done to show support for the troops), Dotty said,

“Thanks for a fabulous day. We arrived home at 8pm to a very “dark” property–no power. So, we did the rally this beautiful Sunday morning [bright and early], hoping power is returned by the time we return home.”

MESSAGES OF SUPPORT FOR THE USO METRO AND OUR TROOPS

Dotty and Joe also left a beautiful quote answering the question, “What the USO means to me…”:

The USO supports those fighting for our freedom. We are grateful to know that our troops are being thanked for their dedication to our country. Great Job!

Keep in mind that this lovely couple had no personal military history (they say they have had relatives in the military, but were not involved directly). That makes their enthusiasm supporting our military a perfect example of the people our armed forces are out and about in the world both protecting and representing.

Thanks, troops–and thank you Joe and Dotty for showing such dedication to promoting our 2008 Maserati of Baltimore Rally for the Troops. It’s the guests, visitors, and volunteers like you who helped us make this event such a tremendous success, absolutely.
