The spirit of participants in the May 15 Rally for Reach was in no way dampened by the rain.
Reach Child and Youth Development Society children and families were treated to a close up look at the high performance cars of the Driver’s Experience Gruppe (DXG).
In an extraordinary show of generosity, car club owners raised more than $15,000 in registration fees to support children with extra needs at Reach Society as well as coming out to show them their cars including a Ferrari, Lamborghini, McLaren and top of the line Porsches and Audis.
The event began with a Delta Police escort bringing the exotic cars in formation to Reach Child Development Centre in Ladner. Once parked three deep in front, Reach children were able to sit in and take pictures of the vehicles. A surprise awaited in the trunk of one of the cars with car themed and other toys for children to pick from to take home with them. There were far more toys than children present so the remainder were donated to Reach programs for use in sessions.
The DXG arranged for free food from the Holy Masala food truck for families and Starbucks provided free coffee and passion-tea to all participants.
“We are so grateful to Moe and Zeaffrey Khalik, DXG co-founders, who had the desire to create this amazing fundraiser that both the DXG members and our children big and small enjoyed so much,” said Reach development manager Kristin Bibbs. “The grins were huge and energy high despite the rain, and we would like to send a huge thank you to everyone at DXG for their community spirit and generosity!”
