USO METRO STORM PARTY IS A HIT: MID-DAY UPDATES ON PARKING, SHUTTLE SERVICE, AND INDOOR FESTIVITIES

MASERATI OF BALTIMORE RALLY FOR THE TROOPS

MASERATI OF BALTIMORE RALLY FOR THE TROOPS

For the middle of a quasi-hurricane tropical storm, we have an amazingly full house. Between staff, volunteers, and visitors nearly 200 people were already on site well before noon plus a whole other wave of family and friends are expected to be arriving to keep busy for the rainy Saturday afternoon. We’re writing the outline of this post for early readers on the fly in the middle of the party to let all of our incoming visitors know what’s going on indoors, and we’re going to pop back to smooth out the wording and typset once the day is through.

“I do not think there is any other quality so essential to success of any kind as the quality of perseverance. It overcomes almost everything, even nature.” John D. Rockefeller

The party we’re having to raise some money for the USO is a obviously a hit, and hitting back harder than even the weather can keep down. After beginning on a two hour delayed start this morning, we welcomed our waterlogged rally guests and volunteers in form all corners of the mid-Atlantic region. Please forgive our typos–we’ll be back to edit and share more on Sunday Afternoon.

Ladies and gentlemen, time is of the essence and the Drive 2 Thrive Christian Siriano Maserati event photos are beginning to arrive. With a few days to rest and recover, we are anxiously awaiting to see what each persons “take” on the event was… with everyone’s cameras flashing, we want to see this event through the lenses of the public you.

Here’s the deal. Think of our request as your opportunity to sign a big thank you note.

We have the event setup photos posted and have all the photos back and posted that were returned to us from Echelon Life to date. Now, it’s up to the photographers and press to send us back any pictures they have of the event. Amateur and professional photographers are welcome to contribute their items. Send one or two photographs, send a hundred. It’s all up to you.

Did we say YOU? Yes–Help us tell Christian THANK YOU!

If your camera holds a few glamorous clear, artistic, or special friend photos of the “Drive 2 Thrive” nights events, please submit them to Jack & Kae Davis at mobexotics@gmail.com. Please indicate the names of guests, designers, vendors, or models if known. Include your name, website, email, press resource, or photography company represented so Maserati of Baltimore can give appropriate credit and trackback links so viewers who love your photos or photography skills can get back with you.

Don’t be bashful! Submit your own pictures and stand up as a friend of the MOB EXOTICS staff and crew. If you are feeling clever, write a few sentences, a paragraph, or a little story to go with each photo–and sign your electronic signature so we can give credit. Tell us how you found our event and if you love our cars, which one is the ultimate fashion accessory. It’s your chance to say hello to Maserati of Balitmore and let Christian Siriano know how much you love his designs.

"Cigar in the Bottle" won the hearts of Baltimore Luxury Product Aficionados

We are here for the community as a whole–and appreciate being able to give back to Baltimore for all the love they have shown our dealership and all the great things these charity benefits and fund raiser drives are able to do. It’s not exactly a contest, but we’ll leave it open to the web to decide which are the most popular photos, how many have been declared a favorite, and we’ll post the results right here next month after we’ve had a chance to review.

Photographs of the Photographer? A novel idea... meet our new friend Matthew D'Agostino. Thanks, Matt!

Vendors–send in your logos and website links (we’re putting them up as a thank you). Volunteers–include your favorite fan photography picture of you and one of our exotic cars (becuase we could not have done all this work without you).

Models who were in the show are welcome to include their name, contact information or modeling agency representative, and favorite offsite portfolio shot, too. We meant it when we said we’d be sure to give all the credit for the car show’s tremendous success to the most elegant of Baltimore’s Youth.

Sincerely, we could not have done it without everyone. THANK YOU.

Bottom line, we (Maserati of Baltimore) were so appreciative of how hard everyone worked to make this special night such an astounding success, we want to be sure to follow though by giving some equally favorable kind words and public opportunity for friendly professional recognition back to you.

Thank you, everyone, for not only enjoying an evening filled with the sparkle and roar of Ferrari, Maserati, and Lamborghini in Baltimore while hanging out with our local stars, but for dazzling us by creating such beautiful scenery of a glam scene with our exotic cars.

Drive 2 Thrive with Christian Siriano at Maserati of Baltimore Fashion Runway Event Re-Cap Pictures on Their Way Soon…

Maryland's Christian Siriano, Guest of Honor at Echelon Life's "Drive 2 Thrive" 2008

Maryland's Talented Christian Siriano

Maserati of Baltimore fans’ hearts SWOONED August 16th, 2008 over the fabulous fashions and the gracious CHRISTIAN SIRIANO. Set against a backdrop of Maseratis, Lamborghinis, and Ferraris the fashion event pictures were staged to be marvelous. The only thing more spectacular than the models was the cleverness of all the designers’ works–and the clothing ideas, styles, and designs were perfectly wearable for gala nights out on the town arriving at VIP Lounges and Rock Star Parking in a Maserati Granturismo, Lamborghi Gallardo, or at any other exotic car red carpet event.

With too many designers and fashionistas to thank properly at this late hour (it’s 4am and we are just rolling back in to check in online and to make sure everyone knows that the event set our minds a spin), just let us say… The fashion show was FIERCE. We are anxious to have all the designers and models–and all the TECH and volunteer crew back again throughout the year at all our different charity benefit and private party venues.

MOB EXOTICS had a full house turnout for the August 16th, 2008 event "Drive 2 Thrive" promoting literacy in the Greater Baltimore Region

Thanks to everyone for coming and participating in this charity benefit event, and once again… Christian–you are welcome back to come hang out, take some pictures, or just have one of our staff take you out for a spin again. Next time, we’ll keep it off the radar, so bring your family friends and relax (so we can spend some leisure time heading out to play in traffic). Until then, we’re anxious to see your next great design series coming up for Uma Thurman in her new movie and we’ll be right here at home in Baltimore waiting, happy and looking forward to spend some time with you again.

Harbor East hosts The Children’s Guild’s marquee Italian car show

Baltimore—More than 100 Ferraris, Maseratis, Lamborghinis, Fiats, Alfa Romeos, Ducatis and other marquee Italian cars and motorcycles will line the streets of Harbor East on Sept. 28, 2008. The car show, the Concours D’Elegance, lasts from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and will feature a downtown festival atmosphere with food and shopping. The public can attend for free.

A champagne hors d’oeuvres reception, live and silent auctions, and awards presentation will also lead the show’s activities at Harbor East. Touching the Inner Harbor at the intersection of South President Street and Aliceanna Street, Harbor East ranks among Baltimore’s finest streetscapes.

Proceeds from the Concours D’Elegance will benefit The Children’s Guild and its more than 700 needy children and teenagers throughout Maryland. The Children’s Guild helps youth with emotional, mental and behavioral conditions, including autism and other learning and developmental disabilities.

For more information contact The Children’s Guild at 410-444-3804 x130 or e-mail development@childrensguild.org. Event details and car registration information can be found at www.childrensguild.org.

The Children’s Guild has campuses in Annapolis, Baltimore and Prince Georges County as well as several group homes.

Maserati of Baltimore and MOB EXOTICS are proud to be sponsors and silent auction donors for this Baltimore area benefit, with special thanks to Chuck Luetner for allowing us to be included alongside Ferrari of Washington’s Allie Ash at this Mid-Atlantic Regional Ferrari Club sanctioned event. There is nothing like coming together as friends to help make up such a special event, and we are glad Harbor East has space for all of us at this Concorso style early fall event.
