Mercedes-Benz Club “Drive for Charity”

Saturday, October 3, 2020

Join the Mercedes-Benz Club -Pittsburgh Section for their first driving event of 2020 to Moraine State Park as they raise funds for the PVGP charities!

This will be a social distance-friendly drive (a.k.a. Drive for Charity). Bring your face mask and your Mercedes-Benz (or any other vehicle) as we drive from Warrendale to Moraine State Park via the scenic and twisty Franklin Road/State Route 528.  Trip mileage is 64 miles and should take 2.5 hours.

Since the Pittsburgh Vintage Grand Prix had to be canceled, the club will be collecting cash donations to give to the PVGP Charities. We are suggesting at least a $10 donation per attendee.

The departure location will be the parking lot at Generoasta Coffee.  The address is 901 Warrendale Village Dr, Warrendale, PA 15086.  The driver’s meeting is at 9:45 AM and the tour will get on the road promptly at 10:00 AM. Due to the PA DOH and CDC recommendations on social distancing they will be doing things a little different on this drive.  First, please spread out around the parking lot so that there is at least one empty space between each car.  Second, we will not be stopping at a restaurant when the drive is over.  Instead, we will be ending the drive at Moraine State Park, and folks are free to picnic on their own.  The chapter has reserved a pavilion for picnicking. Please note that the Park does not allow alcoholic beverages.

Please email the MBCA if you plan to attend and how many will be in your party. Also please provide your cellphone number in case the MB Club needs to reach you either before or during the drive.
