Auto|One Group was locked and loaded on Wednesday night! We had our 50 years of James Bond and Porsche event and it was amazing. Our previous event, the 1950’S and 1960’S theme was blown out of the water by Wednesday nights event. We had well over 400 guests celebrate all things Porsche and Bond with us. People came from all over to enjoy our eclectic mix of vehicles, costumes, food, live music, drink and entertainment.
Through the help of a charity casino, live auction and silent auction we were able to raise more than $10,000.00 to help the Mikey Network. For those of you who don’t know (and you should know if you read our blogs!) the Mikey network is a truly fantastic charity. They donate automatic external defibrillators to various businesses and public facilities and provide the necessary training on how to use them. Our guests graciously opened their hearts and wallets when bidding and we could not be happier with the amount that people bid/bet/volunteered towards this epic cause.
In honor of the night we had an entire room transformed into a casino for the night. In it were two Aston Martins, our custom Mercedes C class and We threw in a Ferrari F430 for good measure. of course we focus on the cars first! We also had 3 poker tables, 2 blackjack tables and a roulette table. There was even a martini station complete with a custom 007 inspired Auto|One ice sculpture that poured out drinks.
In the main room we had a Lotus Esprit V8, Land Rover Defender, Porsche 928 race car, Porsche 930 turbo, Porsche 997 C4S, Ferrari 328, Porsche 964 and an immaculate original Amphicar! We also had the band setup, beer and wine station, ice wine from Vice winery and the 50 plus silent auction items.
We would like to thank all of the guests again for coming out to celebrate 50 years of bond and Porsche. We would also like to thank those guests for generously donating to the Mike Network cause.
