CARLISLE MINI: The lunch / ice cream stop for this charity event is about 70 miles / 1.25 hours from Carlisle if you can't make the MINI dealership Meet and Greet. Get a few MINIs together and find some fun roads to make your way to Frederick for some lunch and ice cream with C3M and DC Metro MINIs for a good cause!
MINIs FOR A CAUSE –
About: MINIs FOR A CAUSE is an event that Norm and Jess Nelsen (MINI owners in CA who lost their home and several MINIs in the Paradise, CA fires last summer) are organizing with Chico Mini Cooper, Shasta MINIS, Capitol City MINIS & Mini & MINIS Int., co-sponsored with Butte Creek Country Club and Niello MINI. It is a Show & Shine MINIcar show Fundraiser for the youth of Northern California who lived through the nightmares of the Camp & Carr fires of last year. Most of these kids now have no place to go to relive their memories of childhood.
Let’s show some “east coast love” to support this cause for these children!
As is often the case, there’s an initial outpouring of support, but as time passes, memories fade and more current events eclipse the devastation of the past.
It’s too far for a day drive, but we can help locally.
Here’s how - join for all or part!
Saturday March 9th, after the Meet and Greet at MINI of Montgomery County, we will take a ~ 1-1.5 hour drive to Beef – N – Buns in Paradise (get it?) in Frederick for some lunch and some fabulous ice cream.
After lunch we will have a “local” 50/50 drawing with the proceeds designated to MINI FOR A CAUSE.

MINI FOR A CAUSE has raffle items (for tickets) and silent auction items. Any items bid on and won by one of our “local” MINIs will be shipped by the organizers for free. We can also buy 50/50 raffle tickets for the California based event. The list of raffle and silent auction items is available – some are unique, collectible items.
