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”

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.

“The CONCORSO: Celebrating the Art of The Automobile”: Mark Your Calendars and Make Your Hotel Reservations NOW to Visit Baltimore September 6-7, 2008

logo

Friends and families of Maserati of Baltimore, M.O.B. Exotics, Lamborghini Baltimore, Maserati of Washington, Ferrari of Washington, and Lamborghini Washington take note! There is a wonderful opportunity coming up this fall to play in traffic with your exotic cars, have a great time, and to raise some money for a very worthy cause–benefiting our soldiers and heroes of the United States Armed Forces through the charitable efforts of the USO Metro non-profit organization.

Saturday September 6th launching from the Maserati of Baltimore location at 1628 York Road in “Lutherville Timonium” [according to most Nav and GPS devices], we’ll be hosting a ROAD RALLY touring the northern Maryland regions and finishing with a touch of magic right back at home from Baltimore’s LITTLE ITALY. The exact course is being determined now, but drivers and co-pilots can expect to visit Maryland’s soaring heights and lush county grounds while they wind their way about the lakes and mountains, returning to the dealership landing spot to have a quick treat from downtown. Offering a fun rally style for everyone, we’ll be rewarding our most attentive teams with some terrific M.O.B. Exotics Race Fan Boutique certificates.

On that same day, later that evening Saturday, September 6, speed and travel fans can head over to the Baltimore Washington Airport Signature Flight Support Terminal area to visit the next leg of the weekend events. Aptly titled, “Wings and Wheels”, participants will get an up close and personal look at all kinds of exotic cars, planes, military vehicles, and private jets. With great assistance from BWI and Signature Flight Support, crowds are sure to be “wowed”. Patrick Moylan, the Signature host, is the gentlemen to meet at this great show!

On Sunday, September 7, 2008, the USO Metro Team will be following through again with a huge CONCORSO event hosted at the POWERPLANT LIVE, making Baltimore’s Inner Harbor an even better looking and sounding venue for car lovers to day or weekend trip for this event. With over 5,000 visitors already expected to attend, you will want to register early to be sure to get your Pit Passes and car placement for this event. As spectators ourselves for this event, we are anxious to see all the cars they have lined up to bring in from car clubs all over the Mid-Atlantic region. We are sure this will be a spectacular “brighter than fireworks” Baltimore event!

For more information about the events of the day and weekend, please visit the USO CONCORSO link by clicking HERE. They are still actively seeking volunteers and event sponsors to help raise money for the USO, so please… if you are interested in participating let them know. As a favor to the event, our staff are also looking for donation items and services for the Silent Auction portion of the event, too. If you know of a person, business, artist, or restaurant that might want to contribute, we’d love to speak with you. [All donated items, staff time, products or services costs are 100% tax deductible and vouchers will be issued through the USO Metro.]

Read on for more information about the history on the event, excerpted from concorsoforuso.com:

“The Concorso: Celebrating the Art of the Automobile” is proud to announce our fourth annual event and two days of fund raising, parties, music, and food to benefit the USO, supporting our men and women in uniform. The theme this year is Celebrating the Art of the Automobile and will explore the artistic and sculptural forms of the transportation industry…

Jonathan Kendall started [helping organize car show events] in October of 2005 as a way to raise money to help our community in the Baltimore-Washington area. The first event was attended by about (100) people, (12) cars and a beautiful automotive art display together in Annapolis. 2006 Followed a move to the famous City Dock in Annapolis, (100) people, (25) cars along with Jonathan’s beautiful photographic style of art. In 2007 the event took a huge leap to Little Italy in Baltimore where there were (75) cars and motorcycles, (250) ticket holders, (3000) spectators. This year Jonathan [and partner Dave Born] have chosen to work with the USO as the beneficiary.

Saturday, September 6th starts with a fun “Rally” driving event through the Baltimore County, Maryland countryside… [from Maserati of Baltimore].

Saturday continues with the evening event at the Signature Flight Support “Wings and Wheels” Reception to be held at their modern BWI general aviation facility. Ticket holders will enjoy wonderful assortment of international cuisines, wine and drinks. There will be a silent and live auction to benefit the charities. And the event will feature live entertainment as well as a display of automotive and aircraft art.

Sunday’s event is The Concorso and will be in downtown Baltimore at the Cordish Company’s exciting Power Plant Live located at Market Place and Water Street. Over (100) exotic cars will be on display for the general public to view. There will be a private lounge, Angel’s Rock Bar, where ticket holders will find food and drinks for the afternoon. This will be our formal car judging segment and also include live entertainment, auctions and art displays.
