Exotic car owners of Southern California will be rallying their wheels for a good cause Sunday, July 26. With a little help from Luxury4Play.com and European Car Magazine, owners and enthusiasts of Porsche, Lamborghini and Ferrari among others, will be gathering at San Gabriel Canyon Gateway Information Center in Azusa at 9 a.m. for a canyon cruise that will conclude approximately an hour and a half later at Matador Cantina in Historic Downtown Fullerton for brunch and gathering. A portion of the restaurant's proceeds for the day will be donated to Children's Hospital of Orange County.
"We are very pleased to be involved with such an outstanding organization as CHOC," said Matador's Mario Marovic. "Exotic cars bring out the child in us all and we couldn't imagine a more fitting charitable partner.
Beginning at the San Gabriel Canyon Gateway Information Center, the drive will venture through some of the most scenic and challenging public roads Southern California has to offer and is open to any and all exotic and/or luxury car owners and enthusiasts.
"We are overdue for a Southern California exotic car run," said Luxury4Play.com Vice President of Sales and Marketing, Aimee Shackelford. "We are looking forward to a great canyon drive and tasty brunch at Matador Cantina."
