We only did one event this year. We had planned on doing the March Augusta event and then catching the December Charleston event when the tour looped back our way. Didn’t do it in Charleston, but had we known that 2008 was going to be the last year BMW did the Drive we would have made the effort.
This year Donna and I participated in the event in three different cities. On March 15th we went to Taylor BMW in Augusta, GA where we had a beautiful sunny day. The first 24 pictures are from that event. Two weeks later we were at Hancock BMW in Columbia. SC where we had a cloudy rainy day. The next 24 pictures are from there. We happened to be in the Washington DC area when the northern fleet passed through, so on Monday, April 9th, we did it again. Those are the last eight pictures.
Every year for the past 10, BMW has taken 2 fleets comprising of a selection of brand new BMWs and tours BMW dealerships around the country to raise money for breast cancer research. All of them are decorated with pink vinyl graphics and they let any Joe off the street to drive them around. For each mile driven BMW donates $1 to the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation. Our local dealer has done it about every three years and Donna and I have participated in 2000, 2003 and now 2006.
