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.

CLICK HERE TO DONATE DIRECTLY TO THE USO METRO

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.

A NOTE FROM A FAN

“I came across your pictures you posted from the event in Baltimore and they are awesome! I have never seen so many exotic cars in one place before! I am not sure if we have a dealership like this anywhere in NJ. I thank you for posting such great pictures, the cars, models and everything was done beautifully. I hope you do not mind that I added you as a Yahoo Flickr contact. Now I will go back to reality and my 1996 Corvette! Have a great day. — Bill”

Who said a car dealership had to be boring and car salesmen play by stale and tired tire-kicking rules? M.O.B. Exotics GM Jack Davis, lifetime car guy and community philanthropist, knows a little better…

CLICK HERE TO SEE CHRISTIAN SIRIANO AND THE MASERATI OF BALTIMORE TEAM PHOTO FROM THE BALTIMORE SUN

Whenever anyone asks the question, “But where could I really drive a car like this?” regarding an ultra-highline or exotic supercar Jack tells them, “You can drive it right here! The guys at Maserati of Baltimore don’t just sell cars, they breathe the exotic car lifestyle experience… We host a number of in-house events, and we participate actively in charity benefits and show up at car shows all over the Mid-Atlantic Region so we can spend time on the road with our clients and friends.”

CLICK HERE TO VISIT THE HOME PAGE OF THE WWW.MOBEXOTICS.COM SPECIAL EVENT BLOG

“It’s that joy and passion that spills over into all our community events…”, sales associate and Ferrari owner Tom Beckman says. “I know that having Jack at the helm means the Mbalt team will be up front and present at all the most exciting community events, putting me directly in a position to both meet and mingle with all sorts of clients and car enthusiasts. I know it’s why my wife Diane was so happy that I made the move here–and now all my buddies who work for Porsche, BMW, Mercedes Benz, Lexus, and all the other car dealerships are jealous that I get to spend my time here.”

Jack Davis knows the Maserati Lifestyle is about more than just driving a CAR

Jack Davis knows the Maserati Lifestyle is about more than just driving a CAR--it's about living your life with Style and Passion.

Sales manager Alfred Ramos mentions yet another set of perks regarding car guy events that he learned from Jack (whose father was a car dealer and always sponsoring fun and exciting community events in the 1940’s, 50’s, 60’s, and 70’s and is the inspiration for Jack’s professional and personable demeanor). “With a regular line up of events for myself and my clients to attend, it gives me the opportunity to strengthen my friendships by spending time together in a variety of social settings–and also lets me personally introduce clients to one another, expanding their circle of professional and exotic car enthusiast friends.”

With everyone in Baltimore invited in for glimpses and peeks at our exotic cars and dealership venue events, Jack’s glad to have friends gather HERE at the new launch of the High Road Auto group support website. “I’m glad the guys in Washington are helping us out by giving additional support with their new online platform. It just gives my customers one more road home to find our team here in Baltimore, and we are happy with Chip, Stephen, and Neil Stylinski‘s hard efforts getting the HRAG newsletter site up and running this year.”

We’ll keep more pictures coming and do ID tags in the coming weeks for guests. Until then, PLAY IN TRAFFIC and we’ll look forward to seeing you Saturday August 30, 2008 for our ride and dine event and Saturday September 6, 2008 at the MASERATI OF BALTIMORE RALLY FOR THE TROOPS Festival, both right through the dealership at Maserati of Baltimore.

One of the hottest spots in Baltimore last weekend was a car dealership, as a couple hundred glammed-up guests nibbled on hors d’oeuvres and sipped cocktails while surrounded by exotic cars at Maserati of Baltimore. Casino games inside and a cigar lounge outside added to the evening’s pleasures. It all led up to a high-end, high-energy fashion show featuring collections from several area designers. And that was inside the dealership’s garage. A very clean garage, we should add.The evening’s high point came after all but one of the outfits had been shown, when… guest of honor, Baltimore native and ” Project Runway” winner Christian Siriano,and the night’s one live auction item – a black chiffon cocktail dress he designed for the occasion. The lucky winner? Siriano himself, who bought the dress for $1,300 and then donated the entire amount to the evening’s beneficiaries: children’s literacy programs.

“I know it’s for Maryland literacy programs, which [are] dear to my heart because my mom’s been a reading teacher for, like, 40 years,” he said.

“Fierce,” said Baltimore Business Journal account executive Shawn Hyatt.

“My favorite part was, obviously, Christian. But the whole event was really well done,” said Harford County attorney Sarah Perry. She and friend Rhonda Miller, research coordinator at Wilmer Eye Institute at the Johns Hopkins Hospital, put on a pretty good show themselves in sleek cocktail dresses and elaborate necklaces.

“This is my first runway show ever. I couldn’t believe the models,” said John Lannon, PSA Financial insurance broker.

“I don’t go to too many fashion shows. I’m in construction, but … there were a number of dresses I really did enjoy,” said event honoree Ken Banks.

Long after the fashion show had ended, the garage remained crowded. A throng surrounded Siriano, each wanting a moment with him. So, how was all that adulation fitting the young design star?

“I love it. … Who doesn’t love being adored?” he said, as he posed for photos with fans.
