Baltimore Newlyweds: Daniel & Shauna (Chin) Wilcox
Get to Know Dan and Shauna Wilcox Tuesday December 16, 2008 from 6:30-10:00pm at Maserati of Baltimore
Baltimore Ravens fans listen up. Tuesday, December 16th, 2008 is your night to party in style and do some “Holiday Right”.
Newlywed Baltimore power couple Dan and Shauna Wilcox are hosting a private party and fashion gala with friends from M.O.B. Exotics. Raising money for their newly founded Non-Profit organization “E.M.P.O.W.E.R.M.E.N.T. Minds“, these new local charm city stars have planned a spectacular night. Working on behalf of the foundation, the Wilcox family is striving to make a positive impact on our local world by helping underprivileged inner city children in the Baltimore community.

Sponsors for this special Christmas and New Year “Silver and Gold” gathering epitomize the character of the event. Attendees can expect to be dazzled by Ferrari, Maserati, and Lamborghini displays from new friends Jack and Kae Davis of M.O.B. Exotics (of course), but they will also get a chance to see the latest in Italian motorcycles with Ducati and Moto Guzzi bikes on display from old friend Speed Millet of Speed’s Cycle.
To add a bit of sparkle and shine, Mike Rudden from Motoart plans to have his aeronautical art pieces on display. Wayne Nicolette from Xhibitz will be lending a splash of pizzaz to create the backdrop for the red carpet guests with a jumping fountain display that will remind guests of Walt Disney’s EPCOT in Kissimmee, Florida.
Thanks to famous Baltimore City Inner Harbor and Ravens favorite restaurant Ruth’s Chris, guests will enjoy a selection of lite-fare appetizers. If you plan to have dinner before the event, you will be comfortable throughout the evening; but don’t fear that this restaurant will let you go hungry for long–they’ll be handing out gift cards to VIP and paid general admission guests throughout the evening.
Vitamin Water is a generous donor; they will be providing donated refreshments to help the charity raise money throughout the evening. With a special livation menu (and non-alcoholic substitution) cocktail menu available, the cash bar proceeds will be reverting to the foundation. Ensuring that guests continue to remember that the real reason we are celebrating is to help raise money for the E.M.P.O.W.E.R.M.E.N.T. Minds charity–not only will the drinks be festive but also will help lend a sophisticated philanthropic aura to the socially aesthetic atmosphere of party mingling.
RESERVED SEATING IS SELLING OUT QUICKLY
Tickets to this special event are still available, though space is limited and V.I.P. Seating is limited. Visit www.empowermentminds.com to purchase your tickets online.
Although this is a private party function, general admission tickets are available at $50 per seat; standing room only tickets will be available on the night of the event for an additional fee TBD–but early RSVP ticket purchase confirmations are encouraged (as the event is expected to sell out several days early).
Are you a V.I.P. for $83?
If you are interested in a front row (or close to the show) seat, Maserati of Baltimore’s Alfred Ramos says, “V.I.P. Admission price is a sweet holiday treat guaranteeing you seats for the fashion show and entertainment portion of the evening–only $83 per person.” [For anyone not from the Baltimore Washington DC area wondering, Dan Wilcox jersey number is eighty-three.]
GIVE AND GET: LUXURY LIVING
Both admission prices will include a gift bag for each ticket holder at the end of the evening, so remember to keep your ticket identification handy. Dan and Shauna plan to distribute gift bags from a high tech sleigh–using a Maserati Quattroporte as the distribution gifting suite display. Guests can relax and shop in the Maserati Boutique while in line to collect their treats and goodies or browse the showroom and daydream about the “Playing in Traffic” scenes.
The last few pieces of this ultra-glam event should have all guests bringing a little something. Smyth Jewelers, a main sponsor of the event, will have a booth onsite and will be buying old or broken pieces of gold and silver jewelry from guests–and based on weight, will be issuing guests a high exchange rate. Bring your sparkling bits and baubles you are no longer using and get a check back from Smyth immediately.
What will you do with the newfound money? Hopefully, bidding on one of the Live Auction items for sale intermittently throughout the show–or purchasing raffle tickets to distribute among the silent bid “Greek Auction” items. One ticket for each silent auction gift will be the lucky winner. Ticket blocks purchased in amounts of $250.00 or more are eligible for a tax deduction voucher from the charity.
